I usually don’t listen to any music when traveling. I read a book. If I have listened to music it’s usually Jackson Browne, Carole King, etc.

These artist were part of my life when I was in the Marine Corps and Navy traveling around the world. They still speak to what I was doing and what was going on, which is better than the head-banging crap spewing forth today.

  • The Next Voice You Hear – The Best Of Jackson Browne – Jackson Browne
  • Tapestry – Carole King Buy
