Editors’ Notes

For a reason best known by Mike Doughty himself, he put the best songs on Golden Delicious at the album's end. “I Got the Drop on You” starts the trip into a "second side" that plays together as a perfectly constructed suite, unlike the start-up/shut-down feel of the first half, where the previously heard “27 Jennifers” gets a cool, modern-rock facelift. Again with Semisonic’s Dan Wilson producing, Doughty saved his bullets for the nearly hidden midnight rumble of “Wednesday (Contra La Puerta)” and the smooth, sleek electric piano-electric guitar poppin’ “Like a Luminous Girl,” which highlights everything about Doughty’s vocal delivery that kicks things into a higher gear. “Nectarine (Part One)” adds nearly a Steely Dan atmosphere with its calculated riffs and carefully crafted arrangement. Upon reaching “Navigating by the Stars at Night,” the effect is complete. There's a sense of seeing everything happening in the rear window, starting with “Fort Hood” and its interpolation of “Let the Sunshine In.”
