Back To Mine (March 2017)



The first of five posts with 'mixes' that I have done this year but just never got round to posting. This one isn't really a mix, but it's first up and is the only 'guest' thing I've done this year, possibly the year before too, I forget if truth be told.

Anyway, long story short, Back To Mine was intended on being the follow up series to the seasonal selections that were put together last year and a homage to the series that we knew and loved from years ago. If I'm honest, I wish it had remained the original group from the seasonal mixes. Not to take anything away from the other people that have contributed because I've enjoyed a good few of them and some of the folk involved really put their heart into it, but it really has grown arms and legs, and apart from the fact I liked the compact group we had, I feel like some folk missed the approach that was originally intended. Anyway, it's someone else's baby. I'm not sure if anything is planned for next year, but if you follow the people in the know you surely won't miss out.

I'm going to post this from Soundcloud, but the players that are used in following posts will be from Hearthis. See the previous post for my all round grumble fest if you want to know why.

Back to the post. This selection, as all of the selections were originally supposed to be, was a 2 hour selection of music played in full that you might hear if you ever came 'Back To Mine' after a night out (no laughing now), with some accompanying words on what the track choice means to the selector. Music that moves, chills, draws a smile and brings you back to remember times you link to the music. This one was broadcast in March and is available on the Balearic Social Soundcloud. If you care to read the blurb I put alongside my selection, dig around on Faecesbook and you'll find it.

For the record, the picture used is what you would see if you were coming 'Back To Mine'. It's known locally as the Harestone Road (after nearby farmland I think) and is around 200 yards from my house. I also have an alternative version with a totally different set of tracks that I may post up in time, we'll see.



For those of you not keen on using Soundcloud, you can catch this on my own Hearthis page [HERE]
