My uncle Daryl was my first musical mentor. We have traded music and mixes for over 20 years. Two years ago, I made a series of mixes for him called Back to Basics. This is about getting back to that same mood, but with hopefully a few pleasant surprises for him. As you can see, not necessarily a best of 08, but with less of my usual suspects.

I want to thank Barry via Anthony for The Broken Family Band, also Anthony proper for the Okkervil River, George for the Linda and (not that) Robin Williams, and, last but far from least, Dean for the Eliza Gilkyson as well as his impeccable artwork.P.P.S. The site is not letting me put all the tracks, but you can see in the artwork below the complete listing.

This looks absolutely wonderful. I'm jealous of Uncle Daryl.

It was a pleasure being part of this mix in a small way, and frankly I think it's one of the best Derek has done.

Timeless, atmospheric, unique. This is why we all root for Doowad!
