A return to the Rob Gordon series culled from my vinyl library. After a couple diversionary exercises (the 'Dick's Mix' pairing) I'm back and playing by the rules, using exclusively vinyls that have not yet appeared on any previous RG tapes. I kinda like this one for its simplistic awesomeness. I trotted out some usual suspects (Kinks, Bowie, etc.) but I like the way it plays overall. Enjoy!

Some serious love for this one. Seriously, I love just about ALL of the artists. Also, I too am a frequent user of the Kinks in my mixes (especially anything off of Arthur and Something Else). the Zombies track is pure class, as well. I give this a big ol' stamp of approval.

Side two of this mix rocks my socks from end-to-end, especially given that it starts with one of my favorite versions of one of my favorite songs. I'd really like to hear side one, since while I love all the artists, I can't hear the transitions in my head and some of them really pique my curiosity (Sly to Janis for instance). I also give high, high marks for including the most purely amusing Rolling Stones song ever. Solid work, can't wait for vol. VII
