Comment:

Well, it's been about a month, so I figured I was due for another mix. We've got some old favorites here, mixed in with new stuff, mixed in with weird stuff (namely the gentle, acoustic cover of Lifter Puller's rampaging "Secret Santa Cruz"). And then I used another Lifter Puller song (the title track, as it were), earlier in the mix. Hey, they need the pub.


I need a pub too, but that's completely irrelevant.

Love that Dylan song ... in fact, the whole run to the end sounds great ... except I'm not sure I'd want to hear Tiny Tim on a regular basis ...

Nice job. The Zombies version of Summertime is THE version for me. Nice Pedro opening and also digging the Nick lowe pick. I still haven't been able to find a Lifter Puller record, but the three songs I've heard absolutely kill and I MUST find their record(s)!

Looks lovely - ahhhh, Handsome Boy Modeling School! - and I really like the stretch of the last 6 or so too.

Great mix but bet you don't need a pub as much as I do; French bars lack, shall we say "a little ambience."

+++ For the Zombies and Pedro.
Also, I dig the pseudo-double ending.
