I first heard "Gone to Pieces" on The Black Donnelly's, I was hooked. This song was hard to find, a rare gem. I'm glad to have finally purchased it. I remember Northridge, the cold early morning waiting for the sun to rise, the smell of coffee, and shaking nerves. Thank you for writing such a beautifully tragic and somehow comforting song. I wish you well.
