"(Not So) Strange Bedfellows" : THE WEEKEND MIX

This started out as a simple compilation of duets, but after stumbling upon the John Hiatt and Matthew Sweet DAT, (see yesterday's post) I thought a little twist would be exciting.

A little more than half of these tracks are live performances; some for television, some in concert. The rest are from rare singles, like the Phil Spector produced Nilsson and Cher track (still one of my all time faves) and the Roy Wood/Phil Lynott rocker. And as for JB and Luciano...who'd thunk it?

The Pavarotti/James Brown duet really needs to be seen, on YouTube, to be believed.

Anyway, thanks -- lots of cool stuff as usual.
