Admittedly Self-Indulgent Non-Weekend Mix
There is great inspiration for this collection of songs I offer up today, as well as one hell of a back story that I will never be drunk enough to share. I don't think details will make the music any better. I am quite happy with how this "sounds good altogether," and for my personal needs, it does its job.
I will say this. The title of the mix is "As Falls Tinton, So Falls Tinton Falls," which some of you might recognize as a play on the Pat Metheny/Lyle Mays record, "As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls." I was introduced to that record in the early 80's, under some truly bizarre circumstances. I am not a fan of Pat Metheny at all, but that record will forever be a creepy footnote in my life and a part of the story that even if I was drunk enough to share, no one would believe anyway.
As for the music here, not everything serves a personal purpose. There are a few songs that just seemed perfect for a transition to the next. As I said, this is strictly for me, but I know there are some of you out there who enjoy a good mix, and I loved putting this one together.
