This mix is taken from the third in a series of Dark Sparkle CD's which focused on individual DJ's Miz Margo and Sage.
It was released in February 2005 and has the distinction of being the first Dark Sparkle CD to demonstrate our move from an entirely classic format, into incorporating new songs as well.
We were fortunate to have artist Tiffany Star create a custom painting for this release, so big thanks to her.
As for the songs, if you haven't guessed by now these DS related CD's were very personal to Margo and I, both in theme and as reflections of who we were at the time.
The tracks reek of heartache and regret, but the light at the end of the tunnel isn't always a train. I actually ended up meeting my future wife because of this.
She fell in love with it and we eventually ended up meeting as a result (who'd have thought?).
As the original CD was unmixed, some segues have been added for this upload.
Grab a drink and enjoy (or have a cry and mope...whatever).
