Late Night Tales: The Broken Parade
'Late Night Tales' and its predecessor 'Another Late Night' are the names of two related series of DJ mix albums released on Azuli Records independent record label. The tracks on the albums are selected and mixed by a diverse selection of DJs, recording artists, and bands, asked "to compile an album of their favorite music that inspired them to make music their profession - their favorite of the favorites".

After a year or more of constantly taking this project off the shelf and putting it back on the shelf, I have completed my own "Late Night Tales" compilation. The following is my ideal soundtrack for 1:30 a.m. to 4:00 a.m., when the weight of the world seems heavier than normal.

Jefferson Airplane - "Today"
Elliott Smith - "Twilight"
Black Sabbath - "Changes"
Roxy Music - "Jealous Guy"
Moby - "At Least We Tried"
Linda Ronstadt - "Long, Long Time"
The Rolling Stones - "Coming Down Again"
Phil Collins - "One More Night"
Bruce Springsteen - "I'm on Fire"
Peter, Paul & Mary - "500 Miles"
Roy Orbison - "Crying"
Fleetwood Mac - "Beautiful Child"
Leonard Cohen - "Chelsea Hotel No. 2"
Cat Power - "Names"
