Rusty Warren - Bounces Back - 1962

Naughty comedy that today doesn't seem all that naughty. I think the thought that this was considered "Adults Only" entertainment is funnier than the actual material on the record.

Sir Mix-A-Lot - Rippin' 12" - 1988

I'm sticking with the old school rap theme. Long before baby had back, Mix-A-Lot was rappin' up a storm with hits like this. Suburban white boys like me were listening to it while on our skateboards thinking we were so cool because we listened to what was then underground rap. We were too cool for The Fat Boys. Still am. Sorry, Fat Boys. Anyways, Mix-A-Lot was great. Late 80's rap was great. Skateboarding in the 80's was great. Man my childhood was great.

SAP Music Summer Mix 2010

Time for another mix. This is an attempt at a summer mix and for the first time this summer mix is not just a playlist. I've tried to actually do some mixing and editing to create something original and hopefully fun. I'm not sure that I'm successful every time, but hey this is a learning process for me. I'm still figuring out what works and what doesn't work. Some songs have obvious summer connections in their lyrics. There are a lot of instrumentals on this mix and so the summer connection is more subjective. I kind of picked ones that I thought gave me a summer vibe. There are also some tracks that are kind of a stretch, like the string of songs about cities burning. Living in Southern California, fires seem to be a part of ever summer so it kind of makes sense. There are also some experiments with editing that I'll be honest I just got caught up in the whole editing experiment thing and thought it came out okay so I kept it on here. I reasoned to myself that they were still catchy and or danceable so they felt like summer tracks. I'm sure you'll figure out which ones they are because you'll shake your head wondering why they are on here at first.

So I'm not listing of posting individual tracks. You can read the listing on the image for the tracks and you can download the entire mix. The tracks and artists have been labeled there accordingly. The images also should be large enough to print. I've included them in the zip file just in case you want to burn a CD.

Run DMC - It's Tricky 12" - 1987

I'm sure this 12" is floating all around the blogosphere and the internet, but I've had this sitting in the wings forever and figured I should just put it out there. This was a DJ's copy and is well played. There are some mixes on this one. The club mix, while very 80's is also very fun. So sit back and kick back with some old school hip hop DMC style. For you DJ's out there, "Uptempo" and "Tricky Reprise" might be intersting tracks to mash up or mix with some other things. I think I'm going to try and work one of them into one of my mixes one day.

Robert Palmer - Early In The Morning 12" - 1988

Robert Palmer had his share if hits in the 70's and 80's. This record, however I had never heard before. I wasn't really listening to pop radio at this point in my life. The record is however interesting and has a plethora of mixes of this song, which could be beneficial to someone out there looking for something new to mash up. The song sounds very dated, very 80's, which could be a plus or a minus depending on your feelings about the decade.
