I swear I had no conscious hand in setting up this particular set. It is just happy coincidence that Raina’s song floated to the top this week. All in all, it’s a pretty good set. It’s got a fairly nice balance between men and women. There are some famous folk and some indie friends of my sister’s. And anytime Al Green bubbles up I am happy. We can always use a little extra love and happiness.
