Stuck Inside Of Texas With The French Blues Again



This is a re-post of a favorite mix from 2012, in revisiting it I find that it achieves the coherency and impact that I reach for when creating mixes, that is the individual songs though important, are just pieces in a larger narrative, which should hang together and have greater impact when taken as a whole. The songs interact, comment on and speak with one another, ultimately providing a larger thematic experience. That's the goal at least. I don't care a whit about impressing anyone with obscurities or turning anyone on to new music, though if I do, great! My aim is to tell a story, to create a sustained mood or atmosphere through the precise arrangement of preexisting songs.

  1. This looks radical but the download link doesn't work for me. I tried creating an account with Box but still no luck. Searching on google it seems it's possible you've exceeded your storage space (or something)?

  2. Hmm, when you click on it there is a message that a preview isn't available but below that you will see a button that says download, i just tried it and it worked. Give it another try or if you would prefer here is the old media fire link- http://www.mediafire.com/?11cu2atxi0rrlf6
