(Originally released Aug 2, 2010)
On July 14, my mother passed away from breast cancer. She struggled for 4 years through various chemo and radiation treatments for metastasis, sometimes with a smile on her face and sometimes with a grimace, but always with courage and faith in God.
This mix is kind of about that loss. It's neither a tribute or dedication to my Mom, but more of an expression of my feelings. I guess chock it up to part of the mourning process.
The tracks are selected for a few different reasons, mostly that they express a particular feeling that I wanted to convey, or they have lyrics (or a snippet of lyric) that I identified with, or in one or two cases, were songs that Mom really liked or were by groups that she loved.
So, this being a highly personal dj mix/compilation, I don't expect many to like it or get much out of it. But if you know me, or you knew my Mom, you might catch the narrative that's in the music.
