Dance of the Flaming Sword: Friday Night Mixtape

flaming sword


What have we in this Friday Night Special mixtape?


Delta Blues and rai, several reggae tunes from Desmond Dekker and Lee ‘Scratch’, some jazzy film scores from Spain and an acid-jazz depiction of America.  David Byrne and Bob Dylan indulging in a bit of history with his Early Roman Kings. Speaking of Dylan we’ve also got Hendrix with BBKing jamming to Like a Rolling Stone. How bout some Hammond B3 driven Polish rock from the 1960s? Or The Ipamenas bossa nova-ing in San Roque?


Altogether a delectable grab bag of sound, Dance of the Flaming Sword is corker of a way to groove your weekend away!
