This month on Eclectic Music For Mind And Bodhi:
I'm 50 years old this month, so I gathered 50 of my favourite tunes and, with some heavy editing, squashed them together into 2 hours. This isn't just a list made on a rainy afternoon, these are songs I listen to over and over again. I can sing-a-long to all of them. They are not the best in the world, they are my favourites, my desert island discs, selected from a short list of about 200. If I could have only fifty, these would be they. The oldest I have loved for 45 years, the youngest for less than one year. Many of these tunes are well known, a few are quite obscure. Regardless of popularity or any other quality, these are my persistent maggots.
I had a huge amount of fun making this. The way it all came together ... it seems somewhat autobiographical to me. But isn't this the art of the mixtape ...
