The compilations that I post here were originally made for my own enjoyment and that of my family, but out of the generosity of my heart I want to share them with the world ! They are made with tracks from my own vinyl collection but also from tracks that I've collected trough the years from all over the internet. It's impossible to credit the original poster, but consider yourself utterly thanked.

  1. Get your Easy Living on right here !

    Monsieur Maurice

  2. I have almost all of the albums these tracks came from and they are some of the stand out recordings of the era - all this to say I would highly recommend visitors here grab this one. It's an excellent compilation of some of the best works of those artists.

    1. Thank you for the promo talk Swank Daddy. Hooray for Command !
      Monsieur Maurice

  3. Thank you so much for reposting these Heidi. We need all those active in "the art of the mixtape". and thank you for the link at the "Exotica Music Mailing List". Are you a member of the corresponding Facebook page?

  4. 'The Art Of The Mixtape' is an undervalued craft indeed. (Would be a stellar name for a blog too!) I think in a very distant past I've must have signed up for the Exotica Music Mailing List (was it once a 'newsgroup'?) I can't remember. I'm not really aware of actively putting a link there. But hey, if it helps people finding their way to my blog, it's OK with me. So, no, I'm not a member of the fb page. Not active on facebook at all.
    Monsieur Maurice
