Third Thursday, Free Mixes, Part 3



Wow! Well … look at this … another month another mixtape for ya’ll to download … thanks to everyone who has downloaded the previous months … they should still be available but if not, feel free to give a holla … This month I’ve gratuitously profiled myself, so it’s more just a collection of tunes I like rather than an actual cross section of the reggae part of my brain … I like alot of styles of Jamaican music but as you’ll hear (and may be surprised that) I really really like catchy rocksteady jams … especially if they’re about loves lost … couldn’t exactly tell you why …

These files will be linked from a file/share site and I don’t know what the restrictions are … they do limit downloads by number or days … so if you want it and can’t get it, drop us a line …

Next month up on the chopping block is our dear dear tenor saxophonist Tom Riley. For those of you who don’t know, Tom’s getting hitched in June! So instead of just doing a profile, I’ll do my best to commemorate the occasion by putting together a mix of strictly lovers rock, lovey dovey and generally sappy kinda jams … Can’t you just feel the love?
