Sorry about the editing on these recordings. The songs mix
into each other on the record so you may notice little bits at the
beginning and endings. Shouldn't be enough to get anyone
upset though. If you have any download problems just
add .stix to the file. Should fix it. I think I've had this
record for about 10 years and have just now really listened to it.
There are so many RamseyLewis records that it's easy to let one
slide by every now and then, or at least put off listening to one you
already own. Most people probably know about these Beatles covers.
Here's a few of my favorites...

If so, some of the songs on this mix'll be repeats from the show.
A fair mix anyhow, if you comment then i'll know. Maybe
I should be a little bit more informative on my posts?
See if yous can guess what song on this mix the
post is named after. It's another pretty
broad mix. Sorry it's been so
long since my last post.
I'll try to keep up
on it more

on sesame street. He was dropped after they received
too many letters stating that he was a negative stereotype.
Here are a couple of songs from the record
"Hi, My Name Is Roosevelt Franklin."
(Sorry, my record's not the best quality)

Oar is a 1969 album by Skip Spence. It is his only solo album. It was recorded after he had spent six months in Bellevue Hospital. The majority of the tracks were recorded using a three-track recorder. As described by Ross Bennett, "Combining the ramblings of a man on the brink of mental collapse with some real moments of flippancy and laughter, Oar is a genuinely strange record. Unsurprisingly, the journey from "Little Hands"’ Grape-esque guitar grooves to "Grey/Afro"’s terrifying nine minutes of mantric drone, isn’t an easy one. Even when Spence builds his songs around a familiar sound (primarily minimalist country-folk) unsettling oddities and ominous modulations creep in. ...at least he left Oar – more than most of us sane, functional people will ever manage. Just take a look at the tousled-haired, half-smiling figure gazing out from the record sleeve and tell me you don’t want to peer inside." The album is viewed by Lindsay Planer as follows: "A common motif to this album is the presence of saints and demons. Even the straightforward narratives such as the love ballad "Broken Heart" or "Cripple Creek" — which feature vocal treatments reminiscent of folkie Fred Neil — are bathed in unusual chord sequences and lyrical double-entendre. The majority of the sounds on this long-player remain teetering near the precipice of sanity."GET
