Early Thoughts on "Trouble No More" from the Doctor

A special to 95 North CT, here's some NEWS FROM THE DOCTOR:

I'll be hangin on to this bootleg like a solid rock! Some of my favorites so far:

"Ain't gonna go to Hell for Anybody"Manipulation, deception, delusions, and illusions! We can do it all just as well as anybody.

"When He Returns & Covenant Woman"- Early takes that cast aside all loyalty and pride. 

"Precious Angel" - A live performance that keeps me reeling all the way out of Egypt and straight through Ethiopia!

"Dead Man"- Lots of new lines and much needed harp solos. Not sure if I got this line right especially the last part, but it's quite an image: "killed his body someplace else and dumped it into a long black limousine/ they arrested him for breaking and entering into a place that he's never seen/ the filthiest girl that they could find could make it look like it'd been a Queen/ oooh I can't stand it, I can't stand it the way they make it look so clean"

"Caribbean Wind"- Less chaos & a sincere delivery + many meaningful verses. Change of direction is a nice touch Mexico to CuraƧao vs Nassau to Mexico. 

"Making a Liar Out of Me"- All I hear is "There's a long distance train, rollin through the rain". . .

-Thanks to the Doctor for his insight! -95 North
