I’m back like a vertebrae with the mixed tape playlist this week! And we’re taking a little joyride down a jazzy, soulful, every so slightly big band lane. Etta James’ Somethings Got a Hold on Me will be a little familiar from other songs, as will I’ve Got a Woman by Ray Charles – both have been sampled! And then I’m almost certain everything else has been covered by the likes of Michael Buble… Ha!
I just love the feature image! I can easily imagine this big boat going down the river and the faint, jaunty music trailing in its wake.
