Just Kiss Me Once (feat. Ben Harper)
Jamaica Rafael | Format: MP3 Download
From the Album California Girl

**********************************************************
Ben plays a beautiful acoustic slide guitar solo at the end of the song that sounds like classic, old school, 'Welcome To The Cruel World' era Ben. I love this song!

Thanks for the links! It's nice to learn more about this album & artist. I am loving this duet. I have only bought the song with Ben so far, but after listening to the samples I am going to buy the entire album.
