va -- Sky Blue -- Graham's Selection Summer 2016

A little compilation for your summer trips and barbecues... fits on a CD or a C-60 tape. Some sunny Soul gems by Thunderfunk Symphony, Hawaian Lil' Albert, George Clinton's Parliaments, and the great late Allen Toussaint!
Also some Turkish discoveries: Özdemir Erdogan, Ersen with Dadaslar, Fikret Kizilok, an early Selda single and a very weird instrumental by Gokcen Kayatan.
A few unclassifiables: Azeri Jazz pianist Vagif Mustafa Zadeh, Cresa Watson, the Tornados, Chris Lucey, Lucio Dalla...

Thanks: Benny, Lou, Molly, Akram, Derya, Chops, Jean-Pop 2!

Full tracklist on the Jpeg cover! Get the comp here. Enjoy!


  1. Looking forward to this very much.
    I've been gathering your comps for years, blowing peoples' minds with obscure aural beauty, but always humbly stating, "not my will but tristes humanistes' will be done", or thereaboutsish.
    Today we took a bamboo boat along a stream on top of a waterfall in Laos. Some of your selections were played.... it made the hour mystical. Thank you for your diligent excavating and curating. Bless your soul, man.

    Thank you 1,001 times and please keep doing what you do. You've made the world better.

  2. Well, my pleasure Sir! Thank YOU for playing t.h. on a bamboo boat!

    Ah, and thanks Graham for this great shot!
