Comment:

Another mix put together with the aid of the MixMeister software program. Was able to squeeze all but the last 35 seconds from track 27 onto one CD. The range of years for this mix span from 1954 to 1975 (with an average year in the 1964-65 spot). The second part of the mix isn't made yet, but when it is done, it will have a slower beat than this mix. The pic is of the Ramsey Lewis Trio (tracks 6 & 21, and under the name Ramsey Lewis for track 15). I like how this turned out and hope you'll feel the same way.

D-D-Dynamite! Tracks 6, 8, 9, and 16 are among my all-time faves of the era.
