I specialize in music from long gone eras. I've done mixes from as early as the 1899-1923 period and as late as the early '90s, but most of my interest lies in the 1956-1979 period. I especially like music by black artists, having done quite a few Motown mixes.
Look forward to sharing some of my best efforts here.

There was a box set of the music from the TV "Pennies From heaven" as I remember. Long time ago.

Hi Joe, I know it's all about the music, but that's a fine array of films on your list. We have very similar tastes in that department.

King Arthur: We thank thee, Lord, that in thy mercy -
[cut off by the Knight kicking him]
Black Knight: Come on, then.
King Arthur: What?
Black Knight: Have at you!
King Arthur: You are indeed brave, Sir Knight, but the fight is mine!
Black Knight: Oh, had enough, eh?
King Arthur: Look, you stupid bastard. You've got no arms left!

Much like the Black Knight, persistence is the key. Keep trying and you wil soon rise to first place on the winning team! Congrats.

Hey Joe,
Have you heard The Mynah Birds? They recorded an album on motown in the late 60's (i think). They had both Rick James and Neil Young as members. If you have heard them, do you know where to get hands on their music? Thanks.

There were lots of 'Joe' songs I could have used. Joe Turner, Joe Jackson,Joe Walsh, Joe Satriani, Joe Cocker as you said (probably something from the Mad Dogs And Englishman live album). I had even thought about early British pop star Joe Brown and even Brit bandleader Joe Loss, US 70s band JoJoGunne, As for 'Joe' songs, there is 'Joe' by PJ Harvey, Say it Ain't So Joe by Murray Head, Joe Le Taxi (actually I don't think I would ever use that one) and I am sure lots and lots of others. I just felt that at around 45 minutes it had a nice balance to it and I didn't want to go on just for the sake of it. M
