This mix may just kick off a series. I wasn't considering that at first though. This effort was mainly inspired by my upcoming birthday in mid April; thinking that it might be fun to do an all Aries musician mix. So, I should be coming up with some new sun sign mixes in the future and plan to do them out of order depending on which friend comes forward first to request a similar mix for their sun sign. Herbie Mann was on my list of Aries musicians and I had a great song with him and Carmen McRae.. fortunately they both were Aries. There are other songs that feature two Aries together such as Elton John and Aretha Franklin or Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross, but then I would have had two less songs in the mix if I used those instead of the four tunes that I did choose. One song that didn't make it into the mix was "Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out" by Bessie Smith (1929). Most of the songs used here are from 1966-1977 (with songs also from 1935, 1957, 1963, and 1982).
