Playing tracks by
James Brown, Joe Turner, Lavern Baker, Glenn Miller, Andrew Sisters and more.
This show was 13th in the global blues chart and 35th in the global vinyl only chart.
So when the Original Forty Fives crew came calling for a 45min mix for 45's Day (@fortyfiveday), I knew I had to get involved. What originally started out as a cheesy 80's mix morphed into this Jump Blues, Big Band & Soul mix instead (probably for the best, actually). Anyways, this home lockdown pandemic has had me laying down 45's sets for everyone and I really dig this one as I absolutely love everything from the 1940's - mid 70's on the soul, blues and big band tip. Hope you enjoy this mix as much as I enjoyed making it. For more details on 45's Day or the Original Forty Fives crew, check these links:
Also, many apologies, but just realized I forgot there was a massive skip in my (very old) copy of Martha & The Vandella's 'Heatwave' that required some picking up of the needle a few times. Some of these recs are really old. LOL!!!
