Well, it finally came! Yes, the CD import of Jimmy Page's Death Wish II soundtrack from 1982 that my dad ordered for my birthday present finally arrived yesterday, and now I'm finally one step closer to completing several other mixes I have percolating in my head! It'll take a while longer to get all of them put together, because that's only ONE step, and there's still quite a few songs I have in mind that I don't actually have yet. But I'm getting there, trust me... ;)

"Who's To Blame" / "The Greatest Gift" - I'd like to dedicate these two POST-Led Zeppelin numbers to Electric Magic, who has only just now posted a mix of PRE-Led Zeppelin numbers! :)

"Happy House" - Dedicated to Mr. Mirage, and all the other goths out there! :)

"Daddy Should Have Stayed In High School" < "Sugar Daddy" - Funny, clever, or just plain dodgy? You be the judge!

"Chest Fever" - Man oh man, does Garth Hudson have just the absolutely most gnarliest organ sound on this song or what?

"The Little Black Egg" (X 2) - A cover version of the Nightcrawlers' garage-rock classic from the Cars, as well as the '65 original!

"We'll Be Together" / "5.06 AM (Every Stranger's Eyes)" - If I had realized at the time that Eric Clapton had played on both of these tracks, I might have put them on separate discs. But I guess I can let it slide, because he's basically a sideman on both tracks as opposed to a full-time member of Sting and Roger Waters' bands. (Yes, it's a rather arbitrary loophope, I'll fully admit!) Plus, I figure as long as there are only TWO tracks featuring the same overlapping musicians - and no more - within any one mix, then it's probably more or less a forgivable transgression of my own rules.)

I definitely agree with you on Garth.

Texas Hobart (07-22-2010):
Happy Birthday to you!

Darth Pazuzu (07-22-2010):
Thank you, Texas Hobart! It was actually almost two months ago (May 31), but hey! It's the thought that counts, right? (And that's how long it took for that Death Wish II import to arrive!) :-)

njr (07-23-2010):
The Who's Tommy: sounds of summers past. Thank for the old and the new, and best wishes on your birthday!

Nice work Darth. Didn't realize that The Cars had covered Little Black Egg. Lots of great stuff here.
