Comment:

For the Hell of It (TM). In marked contrast to my last offering posted a few days ago, this mix was conceived and completed within two hours and, in my humble opinion, is all the better for it. I admit that I really, really like how it turned out. Special thanks to talia j for the Shudder to Think song, which I pulled from her absolutely to-die-for/fantastic mix that she made for me a couple of months ago (seriously, if you haven't asked her to upload it, you really should, and if she can't, I will). Title by Ian Curtis. And yes, Mr. G., that's a cover. In fact, I'm going to go out on a limb and call it my favorite Beatles cover (although I'm not generally a fan of folks covering Fabs songs).

This looks absolutely to die for, Rob. The 9-13 run looks great. And I'm assuming #8 is a cover?

Not a big fan of the last number, but I like the 2-hour turnaround.

Early A Certain Ratio, that's like a hot kiss from the past.

I love Joy Division's Colony, especially its riff. And Memo From Turner is a wonderfully menacing, swaggering number by Mick Jagger, from the 1970 Performance soundtrack, with way-cool slidework from one Ry Cooder! :-)

Good to see someone else dragging out the more obscure Stones tracks. Love the last two tracks. Hope to get a listen.

This looks fantastic, as usual, Rob. Sometimes the mixes that we get done the quickest can be the most satisfying ones, that's for sure. That 6-11 stretch looks pretty fuckin' great to me.
