I’ll be sitting quietly in the corner for this one. We’ll open with some mellow tunes from the review queue, ending in laid-back tribal surroundings. At the 34-minute mark it’s into the library for a stretch that takes a turn toward Berlin, if ya know what I mean.
It’s time to go back to splitting the show between music from the review queue and music from the library. The first set is a bit shorter than usual, but loaded with great sounds. The second set will help you get your groove on.
For the first show of 2017, I decided to keep things on the calm side. After the emotional roller coaster that was 2016, I think we could all use it. The beginning of this flow got its start, like so many before, when the library shuffle served up the lovely first track from Anima. See you in 90 minutes.
Two hundred shows? Seriously? Vegas odds-makers lost money when I went past 50, so they must be jumping out windows to see that I got this far. And as I’ll tell you at the end of this extended episode, the reason I got this far at all is because of the great musicians who feed me sound, and the superb tribe of listeners who keep downloading to hear it. Thank you to everyone. Let’s get started.
A recent binge of adding albums to the library and review queue helped form the first half of this episode–and especially the opening track, which immediately caught my ear. And although we start off quiet, we certainly don’t stay there.
*First mistake: Managed to not only NOT mention this track, but furthermore did not originally have it in the playlist because I never even entered it into my spreadsheet! Many thanks to observant listener Andrew for the catch! And apologies to Peter.
**Second mistake: During my mindless babbling at episode’s end, although I was looking right at the spreadsheet and reading songs and artists from it, I managed to mentally hiccup and not mention this track. Sorry, Ambient Visitor!
