Lost Dreamers - Mutual Benefit

from the album Skip A Sinking Stone (2016)

And if we get lost in a dream
Wasn't it worth all we've seen

It has been a long time since I enjoyed a record for being gentle and beautiful, however, Skip A Sinking Stone is just that.  A collection of well-written, magnificently arranged songs that takes you back to something a little bit innocent and a little bit ideological.

The song Lost Dreamers is the one I enjoy most on this record.  These lost dreamers are people who have had to suspend their natural impulses for the practicalities of life, but always keep a tinge of whimsical just below the surface.  I dig it.

Mutual Benefits music is described as Orchestral Folk, a lovely image with endless possibilities but I tend to think of it a classic singer-songwriter music from the 60s and 70s.  Either way, it is a joy to listen to.

After listening to this album last night, I found myself spinning Massachusetts by The Bee Gees and If You're Going To San Francisco by Scott McKenzie.  That doesn't happen very often.
