day 2

This is a collaboration between Leslie Grant and Warren Hill. Leslie sent Warren photographs each day, and he responded with a song. Then Warren sent Leslie a song, and she responded with a photograph...

Dear Warren, Could you imagine that this is what Los Angeles looks like at night? So quiet, the opposite of James Ellroy’s lurking shadows. Henry Wessel

Dirge of the Sea Gods - Norma Lyon (The Music of Norma Lyon LP, Private Release, 1968)

Dear Leslie, This song is a traditional love song from the northern Sudan. I love songs with whistling or moaning and this has both. Khaifi Hun (Have You Forgotten) - Abdel Karim El Kabli (Afrotone Records, STLP 500)
