I've made 25 mixes dedicated to Hunter S. Thompson before this one. Thought that was my last, but here I go at least one more time. This compilation is alternately titled "I DJ for Dead People II". This, like the first one in the series, was a Gonzo mix and both were done on the fly, lining up the next song before the prior song ended (as if done live for one of my favorite departed souls). Track 10 is the only song used in a prior Gonzo mix and that was the same track number in my very first one that I did shortly after learning of his death in 2005. I started off with the 1st track because that groups keyboard player died just a few days ago and because Hunter considered himself a "Road Man for the Lords of Karma". Hope you travel down this musical road for a short trip down memory lane (songs from 1971-72 when he was in his prime). It's just under 79 minutes long. "Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride"...
