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.

Dogfight Giggle?

Must be one hell of a backstory you're not telling us.

Thanks for the surprise zip job. Strangely enough I was playing some Macca and Syd Barrett stuff last night (and some of it was strange enough). Anyway, with mixes as tasty as this one, you can be self-indulgent any time you like. Cheers!

This seems very personal, and while I am enjoying, and probably crying, because I'm crying over everything today it seems, I will respect that. Thank you always for the music, the laughter, and the stories!

Looking forward to listening to this mix, thanks! I've seen Pat Metheny live twice and he is amazing. If you ever want to give him another shot, try the album Pat Metheny Group, especially the tracks "San Lorenzo' and "Phase Dance" . Tasty stuff and worth the time IMO. Keep rockin' Sal!
