  1. Aw :( Well, this may be the last installment of this series, but I think it can be said it had a great, richly communicated, educational run in its eight installments... I've said time and again that it's left me with a better understanding of a genre I probably wouldn't have been able to identify very well before, and now I'm thinking I possibly could, if pressed with examples...! And it definitely left me with a handful of artists to become more curious about and wanting to look in to, so... That's the most you can ask for, I suppose? A receptive audience :) And I'm sure you've had that, and we all appreciate the spotlight these mixes gave to Acid Jazz. A terrific mix to end things on this was... Had a bit of that Dorky Thrill of recognition since the first song you chose also appeared on the first volume of The Soul Fizz...! By a different artist, though, and with vocals. Still, I recognized it! ...And I wasn't imagining a recognition, right...? Aren't they the same song...? One being slightly more sped up and Latin-ified than the other, sure, but still...! And I liked your double dose of Pizzicato Five, and your Original Love selection, and that wonderful remix of "For Tomorrow", which I know I have heard before somewhere, but... Again, it's one of those songs that sound Totally New, hearing them in a different surrounding like this. It's really striking :) And this whole mix was a nice bit of Easy Listening... Not the bad, bland sort, of course! Just the easily digestible, extra-fine, switching your mind off for awhile and getting carried away with Music sort. Thank you very much for compiling, sharing, and educating, Percy :) ...I may have to start brainstorming other series' or genres for you to tackle...! :D ...But then I think "Oh, I've asked for too much as it is!", so I probably won't be the one to. But I sincerely hope _someone_ does. ...Hint hint, nudge nudge. ..Of course, I'm operating under the impression that anyone other than you even reads these comments... XDD
