    My Favorite Deja Vu shows what Raggedy Edge can be as a quartet, with Dutch Workman filling in on drums and percussion and John Huston stepping in with bass and keyboards. These two experienced sidemen from Utah bring unplumbed levels of musicianship to the songs of Lynn and Bob, not only a sweet sensation for them, but for listeners as well. The CD starts with another self-analysis by Bob about life from the beginning to the day he met Lynn and looking on into the future of days that promise to be more favorite days to look back on. A little Hawaii rock slides into hardcore country that segues into the irony of Good Woman Blues. Traveling Song showcases Raggedy Edge's propensity to write in the American Standards style, followed by the gentle ode to youth Playground Swings. It's back to the blues and the rocking Push and Pull of Time's acoustic power lead as only Bob can do it to bring this strongest set yet to a close.

If It Were Up to Me had its start when Bob awoke one morning to winds blowing hard through chimes outside the bedroom window. Add some feelings of separation due to work and a bridge from a song from long ago that didn't need it any longer, and here's a tune about people, places, pets, or things that are missing from your life at the moment.


If It Were Up To Me
(Farley & Perdzock)
Night winds tap dancing through the chimes
Music to the moon and stars that I’m
Hearing on the breeze tonight
All alone with a thousand stars
Wondering where in the world you are
And when I’ll be back by your side

If It Were Up To Me, we’d dance in the moonlight
If It Were Up To Me, we’d walk by the sea
If It Were Up To Me, we’d sing the song right
Through the night, If It Were Up To Me

How many hours till sun a-rising
Keeping my gaze on the far horizon
Milky Way breaking through the sky
Palm trees swaying, surf is breaking
You’re not feeling how my heart is aching
Since we said good-bye

When you’re out in the night with the moon shining bright into your eyes
Feel the world spinning round turning you around to the sunrise
Such a warm summer breeze to feel on the beach in the midnight
Floating over the waves just out of reach of the morning light
