Sept/Oct Reviews

Postby Mike Boom » 22 Nov 2021, 22:20

Really enjoyed this mix, enjoyed every track, great varied collection.

1. Very funky , no idea who it is but its great. Very African
2. Electro pop number that I know Ive heard before but can’t place. Perfect Disco and very catchy.
3. Elektro Cardiagram - Kraftwerk. Fantastic of course.
4. Wonderful slice of 50’s rock n roll. Love it
5. Lovely piece of rootsy acoustic guitar music. Kind of acoustic high life guitar. Great
6. Lovely very spacey instrumental with great haunting guitar.
7. This is Fiona Apple I think , not sure what the track is from.
8. Really love this, a great slice of Prefab Sproutish guitar pop with a touch of Bacharach to it.


Many thanks to my Mixer for a very enjoyable listen.

A fun and entertaining mix this time, liked every track.

1. Fun, garagey, great percussion and guitar. The feel is of a train coming down the tracks. Like the echoey vocal. The drums and guitar carry it.
2. Rockabilly, nice energy, another good one.
3. Girl group, not sure of era. When the song is good I'm always ready for this kind of stuff. I like this.
4. An instrumental, trebeley guitar, tune is very familiar but I can't place it. This is ok.
5. Ensemble vocals, almost theatrical. This tune also sounds familiar. Nice guitar parts. Good bassline.
6. This is one I know pretty well but I can't remember who the artist is. Who's making love to your old lady while you was out making love. A classic.
7. It's Hendrix with Red House. Love the slinky echoey guitar, lots of reverb, a great blues number.
8. The Who with the Kids Are Alright. My favorite Who era. Great to hear again in this context.
9. A live performance, Santana? Great drums, two drummers I think. The guitar and percussion carry it.
10. Jump and jive, Ice Cream Man. Not vintage I think, nicely executed. Great energy.
11. Soundtracky, orchestral piece. The tune is reminiscent of Strange Fruit. Good female vocal, love the horns and strings.

Good job mixer, looking forward to the reveal.
