I realize I completely abandoned the "Trying Your Patience" series after some fanfare and only two entries. I thought I would kickstart Volume Three with a "Trying Your Patience" Weekend Mix, but that didn't work out the way I planned either. I'll get to it...soon.
Today's mix came together with some songs from that planned "Trying Your Patience" mix, as well as some other things I've been enjoying. Let's hope it sounds good altogether.
A FEW NOTES:
I am pretty sure this is the third or fourth time the Aardvark track has been shared. Still waiting for one person to love it as much as I do.
I only just discovered this Sugar Pie DeSanto track this week. What a killer!
This Elvis Costello rarity can be found on the bonus disc of "Punch The Clock," even though it sounds like a working version of "The Loved Ones" from "Imperial Bedroom," which came before.
Picked up a bunch of 45s over the last two weeks, including the one and only release from The Common Cold, who is basically Bill Rinehart of both The Leaves & The Merry-Go-Round. That A-Side is here.
Also picked this up:
A good track that did nothing except to probably prompt Arif Mardin into saying, "Guys, just call yourself Hall & Oates, will ya?" (Okay, maybe Arif didn't say "Will ya.) This did not make the mix, though I do love the song and I think this single is cool. First time I saw the duo billed on record as Whole Oats.
"Teen Town" features Jaco Pastorius on bass AND drums. Bastard.
We open and close with the legendary U-Roy, who passed away yesterday. A reggae giant. The original toaster. If you love reggae but do not know "Version Galore" and "Dread In A Babylon," what are you waiting for?
As per Spotify, their playlist differs ever-so slightly than the zip.
