OBLIVEUS MIX FOR FORTY FIVE DAY 2020

OBLIVEUS MIX FOR FORTY FIVE DAY 2020

Playing tracks by

James Brown, Joe Turner, Lavern Baker, Glenn Miller, Andrew Sisters and more.

Chart positions

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!!!

Perfect mix to start the day with..! The older rock 'n' roll stuff isn't normally my forte but this totally got me, unconventional and really well mixed with a great flow : )

Thanks man, I actually thought of my last one of these jump blues type mixes and it reminded me of that special day. Glad you dug it.

Thanks bro, gotta try to keep it fresh with old music, heh? Loved yer mix, too...still reeling over the Batman drop (I got that one, too...but never played it out).

Outstanding! You can call the skip on heatwave a happy accident because it adds to charm of this mix. That’s old records for ya hey! 👏
