Title: Favorite Jan solo's

Which are your favourite Jan solo's, pre and post accident, and which do you find the most haunting, these can also include songs which Dean paticipates on as well.

Mine are: Dead Man's Curve, Tomorrow's Teardrops, Poor Little Puppet, Those Words   (pre accident)   That's The Way It Is, How, How I Love Her, Ocean Park Angel (post accident)

I think the last 3 particularly haunting, given what he went through to perform again

I've always liked Sing Sang A Song that he did back in 1976. Crazy lyrics but a catchy tune anyway. Skateboard Surfin' USA is another great Jan Berry song with input from Dean. I like it much better than Sidewalk Surfing.  Tomorrows Teardrops has a nice Jan vocal also. I found the original 45 of that song back in the 80's.

Yes, I agree with Tomorrow's Teardrops, pre-accident and Sing Sang a Song post accident. Also, the flip side of Tomorrow's Teardrops is Jan's Midsummer Nights Dream in it's original form. The vocals aren't his best and it's under produced but there is something about it that I love.

Mother Earth!

I wish that track was available legally somewhere, in a proper mix, not just on low quality bootlegs.
