va -- Row Fisherman Row [Graham's Selection Xmas'18]

The "traditional" X-mas mixtape... a bit late this year! ... although I'm sure you'll find it well suited for the cosy winter evenings to come!
Nice melodic vibes through various music genres - Reggae with the fantastic Congos, Lybian pop with Ahmed Fakroun, 60's American pop with Lee Hazlewood, Jorge Ben's poppy Samba, Gülden Karaböcek's Anatolian pop and even South Italian pop-rocker Peppino di Capri and Japanese Gangster-pop crooner Tetsuya Watari!

Check out Brian Eno's "Burning Airlines...", opening track of his 1974 album "Taking Tiger Mountain By Strategy", and his production on the weird Talking Heads track "Drugs"!

Also featured: Turkish legendary rock band Mogollar experimenting with a piano and a saz, Sven Libaek's space grooves, Hugo Montenegro's moog trips, and Daniel Delord & Features of Life's wild Mauritian sega!

Thanks: Félix, Susi, Molly, Dav, Dem, Roady
