    "White Lies For Dark Times" is full of Ben's wit and wisdom, such as:
    • Never underestimate how complicated a simple life can be...
    • Never pretend to be a gambler..
    • You can run away from home, but you can't run away from your pain...
    • Arms that hold you close are the arms that hold you back while your whole world is under attack...
    • You may be a cheap date, but my therapy's expensive as hell...
    • People they don't take advice they only give it, and the only way you ever gonna learn is to live it...
    • If you have to lie do it quickly, and as thoroughly as you can...
    • She wore high heels the ones that can pierce your heart...
    I love that album!
    I wish I could find this album on vinyl. It's a fantastic album.

    What an amazing Red Mosquito! A true highlight from that Hyde Park stream. I just love Ben Harper period. He has such an underrated body of work.

    So sad! Saw him play at my very first PJ show, Charlotte ‘96. Never heard of the band at the time, but I remember Juan front and center next to Ben. They all made an impression, Juan, especially. What a musician.
