I'm not fucking around here. This mix hit the spot, and will continue to do so for the better part of the next hour. By then I'll be out of here, so just follow me. It's a mix of blues and rhythm and blues, from the mid-forties to the mid-sixties, and it's good stuff, with some a bunch of names you'll recognize, but few songs you'll know. In other words, low on hits, with exception of Little Junior Parker's "Mystery Train", That's a good thing, because you already have all the basic stuff, Elmore James, Little Walter, Johnny Otis, Guitar Slim, etc, etc., right?
Hearsay has a lot of old mixes laying around, of differing themes, and all I've heard are good, There's a new wave one that I can't vouch for, for reasons that should seem obvious. Here's a couple teasers from the one I'm digging on tonight. There's twenty four in all. The Little Walter cut is mindblowing, Total punk rock, just an insane racket. Everything is getting abused. You know, godhead. And then there's the drums on the Slim Harpo cut...
