Sometime ago, I finally finished my newest edition of Twilight World (#9) and its main article is a large list of favorite 70’s albums that I either grow up with or later liked much later on called ‘The List Of The Lost’. Why ‘Lost’? Well, you’re gonna have to read the issue in question yourself.
Not leaving enough alone, I ended up putting together a ‘mix tape’ loosely based on that main article; ‘mix tape’ as in two digital CD-R’s formatted the old fashion way as ‘disc one’ is titled as ‘side one’ and so on just like a LP or tape side. Old habits die hard.
One other old habit I was dealing with was this mix ‘tape’ disease I’ve been carrying for decades which prompted me to do this in the first place….outside of bonus time this weekend. Thus I randomly picked tracks from some of the albums listed in this ‘List’ and spilled them over or squeezed them into the two ‘sides’ mixed in with some bonus related stuff to make things more interesting.
…and as with a project like this, I crowbared a cover and slapped it on, which you can see on this posting.
Anyways, I made my master copy and a couple more which I plan to sneak/send off to some friends to scare with….I’ve done that before and since I haven’t scared them off yet, I’ll do it again. You all have been warned.
There are some tracked listed here, like ‘The Banks Of The Ohio’, that I ranted about in the zine and are used here for evidence, but then you could have used YouTube to figure out my said ranting, so this might be moot. However, as mentioned before, some habits and formats die hard. So deal with it.
Enjoy the sounds in yer head while reading this….and hold your breath should this sucker show up in your mailbox….then you should move and NOT leave me your new address.
Hurr hurr hurr….,
