Four Towns along Somewater River. . . time to continue
on from Blues Station to Cattailsville to Dusty Road to
 Innocent Waters. . . the coffee shop stays open overnight
 for the poet-playwright to work on his latest play.
 ( The Kitchen Sink Skiffle Band also performs there
once in a while). At the train station across the street,
the balladeer is waiting for the 5:04. With each change
of season, there's like a dancing of years of memories
 that comes to my mind as I sit in the cafe looking out
 the window on a late afternoon; then it starts to rain. .
. from here i go again. ~ Stu Rain

Reviews and comments on TDRS:
USA , 6/22-7/5/2001 issue of Night And Day
" I liked this album. . . and I'm pretty impressed with this artist's depth. . . "
"The outstanding track is Dusty Road. If that does not bring a tear to your eye nothing ever will. It is a perfect little song. . . Simple truths and keenly observed details of life in general stream from Padovano's pen and are performed in a misleadingly easy and natural voice."
ITALY, 5/17/01, Giovanni Pietro Scazzola, RADIOGOLD:
" Every week I transmit at least one of your songs and it's really great music."
USA, 5/22/01 KIOS radio, Omaha Nebraska, MIKE JACOBS:
" I like . . "Market Street" quite a bit. I'm going to play it on my blues show"
