Yes, this looks VERY nice. I really like how it's not all the sort of cliched '60s r&b that gets played on oldies radio stations all the time.

The morning I get this mix I pick up some friends to do a couple of routes on the rock faces near by. The majority of my crew is squeezed into the back seat with a nalgene in one hand and a red bull in the other. 'Biners are clanking and I can see people wincing in pain from what the recreational late night activities from a few hours earlier. I pull out The Town I Live In and slip it in. By the time Clarence Carter comes in people are smiling cracking their necks and stretching their shoulders. Sometimes a little shot of soul is the best hangover cure.
