Comment:

Some late nite, early morning musings on life probably brought on from the last mix.

Title comes from the opening line in the opening song which sets the mood for the entire hour.

This is, indeed, hot smoking beauty. And no, gnome, you do not make mixes like this; you make mixes like your own, which is plenty good for me. So glad AotM has room for both of you.

I *really* love your opening couplet and 15-16 combo (all four are among my favorite songs of all-time), as well as the Shins and Pavement tracks, and the super-fine RT, R.E.M., Lou Reed, PBS, and Mazzy Star tracks really push this one into greatness. Nice work.

That's gotta be one of my favourite Richard Thompson songs! My favourite Shings! My favourite ... well, the point is gotten, I'm sure, as this is one smooth, brandy-n-coversatin' with-your-lover-into-the-wee-wee-hours-of-the-morning mix.

'Famous Blue Raincoat' is so intense. I can't just listen to it casually as background music, I have to get completely lost in it every time. Love 15 through 18 too.

Oh, lovely stuff. I love that Mazzy Star pick, and the M. Ward and Shins create a very nice vibe. Definitely good for that time of night. Or day.
