Mugglestone Hi-Fi IL JAZZ

I am a jazz nerd, so I went a little overboard on this one and even included all of the personnel and recording dates for each track, because this mix is somehow a tribute to the sidemen.  This is not my comment on which movements in jazz were more valuable than others (for example there is no Louis Armstrong on here, and he was my hero since I was a tee baller), nor is it a beginner's guide, but if you are one of those "haters", this is yr chance to come over to the dark side.

Mugglestone Hi-Fi LEASE ON LIFE MIX

A while back a friend let me borrow her copy of Barbara's first LP, she is from Nantes, and told me the heart-wrenching story of the song (see track 8).  I fell in love immediately with her honest and powerful voice, and listened to the record on repeat for months.  When at Record Palace in Amsterdam I finally found the single, as well as the North African records on the mix and the Leonard Cohen, which I never believed to be on single, but thanks to the Altman movie "McCabe & Mrs. Miller", CBS Holland decided to make a French version of the single (?).  The rest...well I could go on, but you better just get into it--though I have to say thanks to Light In The Attic for all of the amazing Lee Hazlewood reissues!
