Found: an old mixtape. Now playing ...

Postby lo&m » Thu Apr 09, 2015 1:16 pm

I recently found an old mixtape of mine that hadn't seen light of day in some years. I'd made it to play in the car, back in the days when in-car cassette players where the big thing. Before even CD players came along so it's a blast from the past. So for a laugh, I'm going to see if I can find each track on Youtube. If I can, I'll post one track a day. It opens with this ...

Whatever happened to JMM? Familiar story. Dropped by his major record label (Warner's). Started up his own label in 2008 which only garnered a couple of minor registers on the charts. Still working. I hope he was nice to the people he met on his way up.


Another who's career has had highs and lows. Now semi-retired.

Patty Loveless is my all-time favourite female country singer - love her "real country" voice, and her duets with Vince Gill are divine.

Yeah, no pop stylings for Patty.

This song moved my heart back then. Was it really 25 years ago?
You know what? It still does.

I used to like this guy in the 90s. "Dust on the bottle" was another good one of his.

Dust On The Bottle isn't on this tape. Might be on another one, I can't remember.

Love this one too! The 90s was definitely the best era for country music (in my opinion). Having CMT Europe helped as well.

I thought I'd draw a blank on this one but no, I was surprised and pleased to find this track on youtube.
