    Happy Birthday!

    Dirty Laundry is probably my favorite Don solo song.

    I love it! Unfortunately, it's out of print and not available on iTunes or a comparable site. You have to buy it from a reseller. That's another thing that mystifies me about Don's war against YouTube. In some cases, like with I Can't Stand Still, he's not getting any royalties regardless (although it's true that "Dirty Laundry" does appear on an in-print CD - his collection).

    My favorite Don solo song is on this album (tied with "Heart of the Matter"). Shh, don't tell, but it's on YouTube (for now)! Note: This video is also out of print and only available from resellers.

    Oh my gosh, this song is magnificent, and this version is incredible. So moving and powerful.

    Yep - this album has some gorgeous ballads, and that is one of the best.

    Happy Birthday, I Can't Stand Still!

    HAPPY 30TH ANNIVERSARY I CAN'T STAND STILL!!!

    I love this album too. Although The End of the Innocence is my favorite of Don's solo albums, the one is definitely second on my list. I also love the gorgeous ballads.

    I haven't been on the Border for a week so didn't know about the anniversary, and purely by coincidence I was listening to this in the car on the way home from work.

    That version of Talking To The Moon is indeed beautiful.

    I have two copies of this on vinyl MINT CONDITION and made copies to CD. This was his best solo work IMHO! Don played much of the drums here plus guests like Timothy B Schmit on backing vocals on the title cut, YBHU, LWH and bass on Nobody's Business. Jeff Porcaro (rest his soul) drums on LWH, TttM and Dirty Laundry. Bill Withers backing on The Unclouded Day done in a reggae fashion. Garth Hudson of The Band on synthesizers on Talking to the Moon. Joe Walsh and Steve Lukather rock out on guitar solos on Dirty Laundry.
    How I wish, how I wish you were here.

    The three surviving Pink Floyd members (Nick Mason, Roger Waters and David Gilmour) and the Pink Floyd co-founders and key figures who have gone to their rest (Richard "Rick" Wright, "Roger Keith "Syd" Barrett and longtime manager Steve O'Rourke (who managed the band until his 2003 death, God bless them all).

    He played drums on four out of the ten tracks; the title track, Long Way Home, Them & Us & Lilah.

    Yeah, for some reason Don didn't really drum on his own solo albums very much, not even on half of the songs there.

    Don's first solo album remains my second favorite of his solo work. Of course, I'm eagerly awaiting the release of Cass County to see if that changes anything. If any of you haven't ever heard this, I would encourage you to give it a listen, if possible.
