"FEELING GROOVY" : The Weekend Mix
This mix has been through a few different forms since its inception. It started simply as a cheap vehicle to get everyone to hear Nick Curran's sick and slinky Stooges' cover and Martin Belmont's brilliant take on Elvis Costello's "Alison."
Then, the "Lost Tracks" series I began a few weeks ago came to mind, and the mix, at least in my head, quickly turned into a collection of not-so-familiar songs by artists everyone was familiar with.
I'll keep the "Lost Tracks" series going as is with an upcoming treat from Bill Withers. Today's mix offers a preview of that with the supremely groovy "Railroad Man"
Then, as I started picking and choosing, I noticed a groove happening, or a "happening groove," if you will. So "FEELING GROOVY" is now ready to hopefully make you feel groovy. Groovy?
Thoughts and comments are encouraged. Any questions about any of the songs, please ask away.
