Parachute is my favourite too This song helped me to think positive in a very negative moment of my life ...

Happy anniversary to Expando!

It was released on this day in 2009. What a terrific album - Timothy's best, IMHO!

I can't believe that it's been 4 years! What a great album.

I don't even have to hear his others to know it's the best!

JK, but based on a Survivor game we played several years ago, I would say that most of Timothy's previous songs don't hold a candle to the songs on Expando. I know he's proud of the way he put this album together himself, and it shows!

ETA: IIRC, the album came out the day after we saw him solo in Chicago, so that means we saw him 4 years ago yesterday!

I so love this cd.
Jahh and I saw him at the Keswick theater in glenside pa .
I didn't want to listen to it prior to the show I just wanted to go and be entertained
I gotta tell you I am so glad I did .
This is one of my fave cds and I think its because I got to hear it for the first time live as apposed to hearing it first on the cd.
I just kept watching his face as he sang his heart out and he talked between all the songs and explained them etc...just so glad I did

I love white boy from sacramento just a funky funny cool song...

I love that he wrote a song for his wife Ella Jean and explained what inspired him to write the song......so romantic that a man could put in to words how he feels when his wife is away...just so romantic but I already said that but its how I feel when I think of that song.
Its just one of my favorite cds and I always felt its cause I saw it done live the first time I heard all those beautiful songs.
If you haven't listened to it .I highly recommend it.

Amazing to think it's been 4 years indeed!

Happy Anniversary to EXPANDO!

IMO Expando is Timothy best album as I feel it most represents Timothy himself if that makes any sense.

HAPPY 4th ANNIVERSARY EXPANDO!!!

And I agree with most others, this album is solo Timothy at his finest. I remember that before he released this album, most of us thought that we would never ever see Tim perform live as a solo act. When the Expando shows were announced, I knew I was going to go see him if at all possible. I met up with eaglesvet and went to the New York show (I didn't even have a ticket for the show, but I had talked with the Bitter End manager and he had assured me I would get in ). Then, I also met up with VA and Zelda in D.C. to see Tim at the Hamilton. I'm so glad that I got the chance to do this - he was fantastic!

Yes, and what fun that was! Although I still wish Timothy had come back like he told TBF he would!

It felt like a privilege seeing him live, really, since he'd never toured before. He didn't disappoint.
