Inspired by a recent mix of late night tracks that impressed me greatly, here is a mix based on the kind of tracks, long and not so long, that I would play late at night in those pre punk 70's days when I was, err, in a relaxed state of mind.

Track 11 from Sunday's Child
Length: 00:07:28
Year: 1975
Track Description:
John Martyn's music has always been an obssession of mine. In the 70's, he had this unique guitar style using his Martin acoustic along with multiple pickups and an echoplex. One music magazine dubbed him a one man Pink Floyd, and the kind of thing they were talking about is evident towards the end of this recording, which goes from slightly menacing to downright beautiful!

Track 2 from The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys
Length: 00:11:40
Year: 1971
Track Description:
Stevie Winwood at his best on this languid jazzy piano led tune. Traffic were famously known for "Getting it together in the country" which was something I found very appealing at the time. I actually played air piano to this in the privacy of my own hovel when I was a callow youf!

Track 6 from Meddle
Length: 00:23:32
Year: 1971
Track Description:
Chunky keyboards, Gilmour's lovely guitar, fake whale sounds, this has it all. I think there is a charm to this recording that later Floyd stuff lacked, although I still liked almost everything they put out!

Track 10 from In The Skies
Length: 00:07:42
Year: 1978
Track Description:
Peter Green's first comeback, in the late seventies. His voice and guitar are rich and compelling in this slow blues, first recorded by him with Fleetwood Mac a decade earlier. For many reasons this track now makes me very emotional now when I hear it, but then, it was ideal 3:00am fare!

Track 8 from Low
Length: 00:06:23
Year: 1977
Track Description:
WHen "low" came out I would sit and play this over and over again. In fact I had a private mixtape which consisted just of Warszawa. It was a strange old year!

Track 2 from Tales From The Topographic Oceans (Disk 2)
Length: 00:21:33
Year: 1974
Track Description:
The album this came from was slagged off at the time for being a pretension too far. Side 4 of the double album as this once was though has moments of entrancement along the way, including the song at the end, the song of the sun! A great way to end a long night and another mixtape.
