WARMER MIXTAPES #1381 | by Andrew Combs
1. Tom Rush | Wrong End Of The Rainbow
Classic mix of downer lyrics and uplifting Music. My favorite combination.
2. Lucinda Williams | Fancy Funeral
Lucinda has a way with words that hits so close to the bone. It's simple, but that's the beauty of it. Some think a fancy funeral will be worth every cent... But every dime and nickel is money better spent... Better spent on groceries and covering the bills... Instead of little luxuries and unnecessary frills...
3. Little Feat | Long Distance Love
I love the smooth soothing tone of this recording. Lowell George was one hell of a singer and songwriter... One of the most underrated, in my opinion.
4. Jessica Pratt | Night Faces
Jessica has a new record coming out soon, but this is from her 2012 one, which was brilliant!
5. Tim Hardin | If I Were A Carpenter
I’ve been on a Tim Hardin kick recently. This is definitely his most famous song.
6. Vince Guaraldi Trio | Joe Cool (There's No Time For Love, Charlie Brown Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
Who knew Vince could sing? I wish he had done more of it, because he’s got a cool Country Soul thing going on here.
7. Townes Van Zandt | Snake Mountain Blues
One of Townes' more Funky numbers, off my favorite record of his, Our Mother The Mountain.
8. Dan Reeder | Bitch Nation
Dan is a great songwriter who puts his records out on John Prine’s label, Oh Boy. Real funny, sad stuff here.
9. Ry Cooder | Do Re Mi (Woody Guthrie Cover)
Ry Cooder’s first few albums are my favorite Sounding Recordings of all time.
10. Tom Waits | House Where Nobody Lives
The King of the Ballads. Nothing else to be said.
