"Off The Shelves, January '19" : THE WEEKEND MIX
This may seem like a random collection of songs, and I guess maybe it is. But they were all selected from an ever-growing folder of music I call "Off The Shelves." It began back in my CD retail days, when I had access to everything and took it all home. I ran out of room very quickly and needed to weed out the CDs that only had a song or two that interested me. Those songs were imported into an iTunes folder that now holds a little over 1,000 of these highlights. This mix highlights those highlights.
That Dirty Tricks tune sounds like Steve Winwood fronting Deep Purple.
That Starclub tune sounds like a lost Big Star tune.
That Spy Mob tune sounds like a cross between Steely Dan and Todd Rundgren.
Beth Nielsen Chapman's cover of the Laura Nyro tune outdoes them all.
There are a few you might already know, but I love them all and you know, maybe they'll sound good altogether.
