From time to time, people still ask us
why we don’t give-away CD mixes any more.

Mainly because hardly anybody ever listens to CDs any more. Which is why we’re gradually converting our most popular mixes into Click-And-Play streaming files.

Here’s hoping this page leads you to lots of great discoveries. If so, remember: Support the artists you like!

 

AMERICANA

Country Blues (Self-explanatory, with a few exceptions to the rule.)

Heartland 2017 – Let’s Twist Again (Americana Made Great. #3 in the Heartland series.)

What’s Your Hurry (Soulful, mostly–twangin’ tunes, all played at a snail’s pace.)

 

HIPSTER RETRO

Tsunami Lounge (The original, and still arguably the best, in the 6-CD series — which all started with Andy Williams’ “Music To Watch Girls By.”)

Watusi Island (Mix #3 in the series, with distinctly tropical flavorings.)

Slinky Pop (with a twist) (The epic final chapter, number 7, in the Tsunami Lounge series — this one built around the sultry style of Burt Bacharach.)

Soul Martini (Part Five in the Tsunami Lounge series. Shaken, not stirred.)

 

BRUNCH & MIMOSAS

Ice Cream Social (Music from, perhaps, the bandstand of a 1920’s seaside resort. Or a Downton Abbey lawn party.)

 

SOUL / R&B / FUNK

Race Music (Killer Soul + R&B from the 50s and 60s.)

Smoove B – Get Busy (70s Funk megamix.)

 

ROCK ‘N’ ROLL

Pub Rock (Mostly British late–70’s / early–80’s roots r’n’r.)

It Came From The Garage (New Wave + Punk from 1966 to 1984.)

 

ALT COUNTRY (MOSTLY)

Get Me A Beer, Darlin’ (Hawnky Tawnk for manly men.)

Beach Country (Country with a dash of beachy pop.)

 

MIXED BAG / UPBEAT

Girls Girls Girls (It started-out as a Girl Group thing, but somewhere it just went off the rails.)

Sounds Good To Me #16 (Only one rule for a song’s inclusion in the “Sounds Good” series: I have to love the way the recording sounds.)

City At Night (Spooky, funky, occasionally synthy. Downtown After Dark driving music. Inspired by the Beck tune “Scarecrow” — which sounds a lot like the Doors’ “LA Woman,” which includes the lyric, “City at night.” Now you know.)

 

MIXED BAG / DOWNLOW

Maintain Low Tones (A multi-genre coolish vibe.)

Places In The Heart (Roots music gems from deep inside the Soul mine.)

Voodoo Pop (Play after dark. During a full moon. Preferably in or near a swamp.)

 

MIXED BAG / WILDLY ERRATIC

Spontaneous Compression 5 (From breezy pop and soulful folk to nasty funk. And most points in between. Largely created, as the title indicates, spontaneously, this one features quite a number of unlikely juxtapositions and — hopefully — happy surprises.)

 

WORLD BEAT

Concrete Jungle Boogie (Beat-heavy music from all over the globe.)

Twirl & Skank (Reggae / Hippie music mashup.)

Time Warped! (Beat–Centric Music, Mostly From The Early–80’s.)
