When It Hits You Feel No Pain/Life From The Back Seat, Again


This is a re-post of a mix from about a year and a half ago. This blog has been active for about five years now so there's a lot here to wade through so every once in a while I like to point the way to a favorite mix from the past. I actually have two new mixes in the pipeline but haven't been able to find the time to finish 'em -too busy laying around listening to Leonard Cohen and watching old episodes of Dark Shadows- the inevitable slow down of getting old is no joke let me tell you, and I'm starting to feel it. So anyway this is a stop gap thing, like when bands used to release greatest hits or live albums to give them some time to complete their new record. It also provides a good excuse to use this great Spanish cover for Mickey Spillane's My Gun Is Quick.  With spring right around the corner I guess I'm cleaning house. I do like the way this particular mix came out though, its got a bunch of old 20th century favorites (and several from the 21st), so give it a listen, won't you?
