"That spring we found ourselves in flavored water and abundant songs. Shacked up in Lil' Pink, patio time, fountains, ancient sea scape. 'What few know about El Paso...' Benmont said. 'The way things transition.' He kept saying that 'the mountain was just right.' It was a real high-wire act if I have ever seen one. An electric high-wire act. No net, no nothing. The songs spoke for themselves. I'm not sure what they were saying, but they wouldn't shut up, I know that."
