Maintaining your standards as ever, Luke. I know I'd love this. Is that the Ballroom at The Overllok Hotel?

I'm awed!
Gorrrrgeous.

Perhaps one of the more melodic of Mr. Tom Waits's would be at home? 'Alice' or 'All the World Is Green'? Maybe 'Watch Her Disappear'...

You plow a different field than most, Luke but with incredibly beautiful results.

I think Sammy's comment is understatement personified. It looks way off to the side of wonderful. For Lady Grinning Soul alone, I am hooked. This redefines intriguing. Let's all stand here patiently and await the promised "link"...tap tap tap...

Greatness! The Billie track is great and to to be able to wrench out a comment from Cruella demonstrates the quality of this mix.

Really nice! I can imagine the atmosphere of this by just looking at the playlist, and particularly like the Goldfrapp and Shostakovich (absolutely love that piece; thank you for including it!). Will have to go check it out properly now...

Luke, I'd like to request that you start posting (or reposting, as the case may be) a mix every week. I really do miss them. the opening 5 go together so well here. also loved the Bowie, Goldgrapp and Judy Garland (of course) picks. the Ray Noble/Al Bowley really does sound like it's wafting through the locked doors of a haunted ballroom. beautiful, beautiful.

Listening to this was very enjoyable. You really mixed it up. It provided a soundtrack for a story that played in my mind.
