The Steamy Library 2: Sensuous

Many years back when blogs thrived, one particular blog (I no longer recall the name, and probably long gone by now) made a series of sexy lounge tracks. I must have really loved the idea because years later, I finally got around in doing my own series.

The first one was back in May of this year (you can find it here) and finally got around to a second. 16 tracks of sensual desire, or however direction it takes you. My favorite is Armando Trovaioli's instrumental version of "Searching for Something." Otto Sieben's "Soft Flute 1" is another fav. Unfortunately, it's a short track. Another big favorite is Syd Dale's "Dream Fantasy." Seriously, they're all good. Enjoy!

That's What She Said! Number Five Ladies!

It's the ladies again, and they sure know how to rock. Dani Sheridan's "Songs of Love" is my favorite. A big, big favorite! Lulu's "I'll Come Running Over" is another fav. Colette & The Bandits' "A Ladies' Man" is another worthy track. They are all good! 20 tracks in all, from '56 to '69. Enjoy!

Rockin' Rollin' Doo-Wop 2: Ooh Bop Sha Boo!

If one rockin' & rollin' doo-wop'n ain't enough, how about another round! 18 tracks in all, from 1954 to '64. My favs? The Cliques' "I'm in Love with a Girl" is probably my biggest fav in the mix. The Blue Chips' "Come Back" and The Dikes' "Light Me Up" are a couple more big favs. They're all good of course. Enjoy!

Soul Groovin' - Hip Burnin' Grooves [1965-75]

18 funky groovin' soul tracks. Several rare and plenty of unsung gems. My favs? Act I's "Goodbye Love (We're Through)," Marie "Queenie" Lyons' "Your Key Don't Fit It Anymore," and Archie Bell & The Drells' "Dancing to Your Music." Oh, can't forget Gunga Din's "Crabcakes." They're all good. Enjoy!

Awesome Downtime 20: Beginnings

It's been 4 months since the last "Downtime" mix. I think it's time for another. And here we are with the 20th edition. I'm sure I've mentioned this in previous editions, but I'm a stickler for the downtime mixes. I hope I'm still doing the series justice.

18 tracks, and no filler! Future Loop Foundation's "Another English Summer" is a big, BIG fav and you guessed it, my favorite in the mix. Joe Walsh's "Giant Bohemoth" is another big fav (I love Joe's instrumentals). Softy's "Bloom" and Towerz's "Loom" are another couple of big favs. As usual, they're all good. Enjoy!

Yacht On Some More! Best of 70s & 80s Smooth Sailing

Shortly after posting my break post, I started to squeeze in some extra time to work on a few mixes and before you know it, I'm back. Yeah I know, that wasn't much of a break. And here we are with the second yacht rock mix... I was going to just do that one mix of yacht rock but forgot to add my favorite Peter Frampton track - St. Thomas (Don't You Know How I Feel). I love that tune!

Like the previous mix, I based the majority of tracks from listening to streams. I'm not worried if some of the tracks don't quite fall into the genre (and I'm sure the streaming stations feel likewise) for it's all good. Enough of chatter...

I like this mix better than the first. As mentioned earlier, Frampton's St. Thomas is gold. Big, big fav. Other favs = Trooper's Santa Maria, and Stretch's Forget the Past. Also check out Chris Rainbow's tribute to Brian Wilson (Beach Boys), "Dear Brian." Enjoy!
