Re: 'Salute'

I like the "Salute" album. The title track is phenomenal. Other faves are "Biscuit City", "Without You", "Whispers Of The North", "Knotty Pine" and "Broken Dreams".

Love The Raiders. I own every album on CD plus the extremely cool "Complete Columbia Singles" which is loaded up with groovy mono mixes.
