Playing tracks by
Weezer, Pinbk Floyd, Philip Glass, Golffrapp, Frank Zappa and more.
The theme 'Colours' was a challenge with so many songs and pieces in my collection having some obvious colour in its title. As a result at least 5 CDs could easily be created.... so I did! The submitted CD was simply an 80-minute cross-genre mix of tunes representing colours excluding red, blue, black or white (these colours got a CD each, maybe post these later).
This one has a lot of rock with Zappa featuring a few times, along with The Rolling Stones, David Bowie and Pink Floyd but there's also jazz from Anita O'Day and Roy Ayers plus some Romani Balkan brass from Romania's Fanfare Ciocarlia.
The concept behind this series of mixes is that a friend invited me into a group who choose a theme, and then make a physical mix CD of music representing this theme, and design a cover to match. Each quarter the group has an exchange meeting where each individual receives a copy of each of member's CD created around that theme.
