Toasty Relief

The tune "Toasty Relief" was written & recorded on Dec. 8th ,2002, a Sunday. I'd just had heat restored to my home, after a few grim weeks of failing-furnace blues. And I was- well, relieved. So from there I kinda put together these other tunes of similar mood and feel, to make a whole CD of music that relieves- in a toasty fashion.
This is not 'easy listening' in the mindless cheezoid Muzak strings sense, but it is music that's easy to listen to(some of it you can even dance to if so inclined). It's something you can come home and put on after a horrendous day at work, perhaps along with a few beers(or the consciousness-altering substance of your choice)and find your tensions easing and your mood lifting. Music that feels good.
Here's hoping my CD will provide you with- toasty relief.
I'm pleased to say that Toasty Relief has sold online to listeners thoughout the US and in Australia, France and Portugal!
