This is one of the many of the mix tapes that I made for my eventual soon to be ex-wife. I just happened to think this one was too good to let her keep so I stole it back. You must remember that this was made somewhere in late '87 to early '89 when I made this tape I was in my late teens (I'm currently 37 pushing 38!). I could probably narrow it down further by looking up dates for releases but I don't feel like being bothered. This was a tape made for serious psychedelic drugs, and has been taking on many a trip then and since. It is very condusive to the ears and made for a easy trip (If you like extremely dark weird music!). I think it turned out great; even after all these years; with 11 songs on each side. I didn't mean for it to happen that way, it just worked out. And here's a shout out to losingsoul whom I know enjoyed this one night with Jules and me tripping balls and drinking my dad's liquor. Sorry dad. There might have been some weed involved, but I can't remember, go figure! None the less it was a fun tape to make, re-listen to again after years gathering dust (for I had lost the track listing) and to post it. I hope you will all enjoy the tracks. Any feedback is appreciated and will be returned on one of you latest mixes.

Oh you sinful man. A very interesting collection here. Dark and dour, yet sweetened with sprinklings of light. I understand your desire to retain it. I tried pushing 38 -- I failed; it just rolled over me. Still, I guess there's no harm in trying.

I second Nomates' comments--about the mix, that is. ;-)

Interesting final combination (Floyd into McFerrin might have pushed me right into the speedy after-ride.)

The only reason for the McFerrin is the fact of him singing "It's time to say bye-bye."
