Round ’em Up Earl!

2012 round-up tape

Mumblin’ Earl’s 2012 round up mix tape

Friends, here’s that mix tape I done promised you yesterday and, looks like you’ll be spared my interestin’ thoughts about its contents ’til after the weekend. In the meantime you might consider the words tradition, preservation and innovation with regards to it. Like I’m settin’ y’all homework or somethin’ damn! But we’ll get to that in time. Inspired by my recent difficulties with Randy’s efforts I’ve made this an old skool hour long kinda deal. Two sides of a C60 – no need to wind her on with a biro or nothin’. Enjoy yourselves.

  1. Oh snap! “File belongs to suspended account”.

    • that’s why the mixes are on mixcloud now. Odd thing is, it seems what’s caused the trouble is an old radio interview clip of Tom Waits. So, unlikely to be copy written material. Such is the future for us all…

      • Zippyshare seems to be working well at the moment. A bit surprising, actually. Thanks for the mix, I always enjoy them.

      • thanks Mike, we’ll see. It was already clear things had to change some up here on Walton’s mountain, posting individual tracks to back up something is clearly all done with and I thought some kinda mix to go with the writing type deal (almost like the old glossy mag cover-mount CD only less sucky) was going to be the way forward. And then the daunting scale of the task stopped me getting the writin’ part done for the last couple o’ mixes. so likesay, we’ll see. Meantime a good deal of ’em are up on mixcloud if folks want to listen at ’em…
