Comment:

First in a series of pending "thank you!" gifts for excellent mixes received. I prefer to let the tunes speak for themselves, but in this case I'll infect you with this thought-virus: it is a time-traveling car service ride through a continent of cartoon caricatures from an old dry gulch to Guiliani's pesticide-laden Apple and the mythic Brooklyn; the psychic blight and beauty of urban dwelling, the strange perfume of stones; and Jack sleeping on the hood covered in tiny insects, permeated with heat and Zen, across the border at last (or something).
If I ever find type II cassettes in the 120 minute length, I will do an extended version, because there were items I couldn't fit. It's in need of klezmer and the piano rolls version of Rhapsody in Blue, which sweeps through the city like a warm breeze. It needs more Latin jazz and Brokelyn beats. And a smidge more Kerouac delivered by the lovely Ms. Lunch. Ooh, and...

Ahh. Foetus humor, thanks. I gave up listing his a.k.a.s with the exception of the symphony orchestra.

Yeah man... I'm down with it. At least I think I am -I could have easily misunderstood whatever the hell it was you were talking about. Still, very nice and interesting mix.

SwankQueen...some of that "Dirty Boulevard" by the Velveteer might've added to it..., although this clearly needs no further additions. Just having Mr. Burroughs gives weight to the heavy.

I'm glad you left those notes, these are quite inspiring mixes just to read! I get "Midnight Cowboy" vibes from the liner notes and tracks. Cool.
