A sad note amid this happy mix: Jesse Winchester died today. A wonderful songwriter who wrote "poetically" without coming across as a self-important "poet." His first album is still one of the all-time greats by a singer-songwriter.
Before I saw the note from Ken I was going to comment that Sham-A-Ling-Dong-Ding has a special and painful (for personal reasons) place in my heart -- so beautiful ... so heartbreaking. But we know what Frank Zappa said about broken hearts.Now that I hear the news of Jesse's death I'm really sad. That first record is great and Gentleman of Leisure is another fav.All that notwithstanding ... a great mix Sal. Thanks!
Wow, Dee-Lite on this mix. I thought I was the only one who still threw that in my playlist every now and then.
Nice to see Jesse Winchester on here - I was actually in Memphis this week when he passed.
I'm also tempted to drive with the top down listening to this mix, only I'd need a can opener first as I don't have a convertible. Some choice cuts (The Spoonful, Mr Cope & Ducks Deluxe yet!) nicely assembled. Many thanks.
