About Me

Wide ranging tastes. I tend to prefer mixing genre's and era's without a particular theme as long it flows nicely together. Does it? let me know. I do have a few theme playlists running but it takes years for them to gestate to fruition. marko66 @ isit4u.net

Some to come: Lady sings the Blues; Lost Soul Vol 3; Blues, The Standards; Not Enuff yodelin' Songs; Whistlin'; Nekkid; Monkey Songs

Mixtapes

2012-2

Fresh mix. Graffiti6, Justin Townes Earle, and Alabama Shakes have been my favorite releases so far.

2012-1

Mostly new, leans more female and countryish then some. probably a bit on the poppish side too.

2011-3

No theme, mostly new, few older ones. Jakob Dylan ?norah songs were written from lyrics by Hank Williams Sr. found in his notebook when he died so young.

2011-1

Was out for a 8 month Hiatus. 1 Of 3 parts I did for 2011. No real theme. Mostly newer stuff, and few older ones that amused me.

Lost Soul Vol II

See blog entry; same vein as the 1st.

Country-ish

Alt-Country, Americana, Country, Country- rock, Bluegrass, whatever you want to call it, I am just gonna call it country-ish

Paradise lost&found

Another mix with no real theme, just jumping across eras, genres and continents, hopefully sequenced in soothing way. The name of the mix is the last thing I thought of. Every mix, for better or worse deserves a title. It occurred to me most of the songs I got from radioparadise.com eclectic mix so it is just a nod to them. Check them out. www.radioparadise.co m.

Santa Got Soul

Blues/Soul/Reggae Holiday mix.40's to present day.

Best of Austin City Limits Music Festival 2010

Festival time again. Mostly aimed for those on the undercard instead of headliners.

Reggae Remakes Vol I

Reggae versions of popular songs. See Blog entry for more details. All pretty much from 60's and 70's. No one recycled music like the Jamaicans. I think it works well as a summer mix, So turn up the Bass, kick back, light one up and let it spin.

Lost Soul Vol I

Collection of soulful music not often heard. Some original artists of songs that went on to be big hits for other,. Some obscure artists that never quite made it. Stretching from 50's to the 80's.

Best of Austin City Limits Music Festival 2009

Don't Worry, Everything is Gonna Be Alright

The basic premise is that the songs must have variations of and the basic feeling of the combo phrase title, Don't Worry, Everything is Gonna be Alright, within the lyrics. Hoping for a soothing mix, and hopefully not annoying.

The Fall I

I believe I originally started this mix during one of the wife’s incessant “American Idol” watching a few years ago, just so she would know what real singers sound like. I re-vamped along those lines but it is still a work in progress. There is few iconic songs that I am sure made it to more then a few playlists here. It is a rather moody/broody mix altogether.

Mostly New, Mostly

Just a random assortment of what I have spinning this month.

South of Sway

Re-did an older mix for my mother. It is fun to explore other cultures music. You run across gems like Los Zafiros. 3 versions of Guantanamera? Like "Girl from Ipanema", it is just one of the greatest songs ever, but that should be another playlist idea.

The Fall II

Nothing to do with the season just what I put together around the time of Obama's historic run. That explains the Sam Cooke song starting , the rest just fell together. One of the more popular ones I have done and has the kind of ebb and flow I favor.

Hi Mark, I like your taste in music and the 'Lost Soul' mixes look great. If you want to do a sidetrade let me know what would interest you or would you like me to do something I think you'd like? Cheers, Danny

*Martin

hey mark - hope all's well man. Glad to see your name come up for this months mix. It went in the post today from London (13th June) - hope you like it!

Jon

Nice mix Mark~Everyone's enjoying it

Leisa

Sent your mix today, hope it finds you well :)

glad you liked it. i'd love to do a side trade - you look like you have a vast wealth of musical stockpiles just begging to be drawn upon - if you like the look of any of the compilations i've got listed let me know. email me at nellienorarose@hotmail.co.uk and i'll give you my address

Danielle

Christmas swings on! I just received the mixes and I'm -loving- them. Thinking of putting up the Christmas tree all over again. Sorry for the address snafu - my fault. Thanks! and merry January!

Helloo Mark, Nov mix is in the post on its way to you. hopefully it won't be too delayed by UK postal ineptitude/backlog - we cannot cope with snow. or xmas. best, nellie

Caitlin

Thanks for the mix!

Eric

M, If you haven't noticed your September 2thousand10 mix is late. I sent the cheap and badly thought out Memorex 90 minute cassette tape to Pluto Texas by accident. Imagine my horror to find out that apparently the town does not exist! After my wife has the baby, I'm sure a new copy. This time I will try not to repeat the same Peter Wolf tune for 18 times in a row. Variety is the spicy lice as they say on your planet!

UrbanCannibal

A moving mix to be sure, nicely sequenced with genuine scope and a real pleasure to share with friends on a patio over a few beers and BBQ. Very much appreciated, it brings a big smile to the wife’s face as one can’t help but just kick back and relax while it percolates from the stereo. Bonus compilation of Reggae covers was a nice addition and gets frequent spins in the car. Thank you!

Kate

Loved the Soul mix! And the cover is fantastic.

*Martin

Yep John was right - your lost soul mix is amazing! Absolutely love it. OV Wright is one of my favourite artists but I didn't have either of the tracks on your disc. Particularly like his version of 'that's how strong my love is' ... thanks also for the reggae mix. I haven't had a chance to listen to that one yet, I'm saving it to play in the car over the summer holidays. By the look of the tracklisting it's gonna be great and it will save my missus from her usual diatribe 'do we have to listen to marvin gaye again?'

*Martin

Hey Mark, the sidetrade went in the post this morning from London (24th June). In parts it's close to a sermon so I popped in a second disc of good old fashioned rock to counter the balance...

theo

hey man wanna do a side swap?

*Martin

Hey Mark. I'd love to get a copy of your Lost Soul mix - it looks like it's right up my street and it has john's seal of approval, so now I gotta have it! Interested in a side trade? I'm sure I could rustle something up for your delectation...

Laurin

Glad you liked my April CD! Was so excited that you liked it that I meant to hit on your profile and accidentally deleted your comment instead . . . Oops sorry! Yeah I really just try to give myself letter themes to make sure I troll through my music regularly. Also I leave them in my car and it makes for a more enjoyable driving experience than the radio. Yep it's just my CDs, the CDs sent to me and NPR. Thrillsville :)

John

Hey Mark! Your Lost Soul Mix is amaaazing! One of the best I've ever received. Thanks.

Kate

Hey, Mark! I received your mix and am really excited to give it a listen. Thanks!

Howard

Ta for the resending the Feb mix! I'm liking it - some real classics there, and plenty unfamiliar to me too.
