No Sunshine Mix - November 2007   Download List as ZIP File

It's a little ironic but I got this mix when I was in Costa Rica last March. We stayed at a Hotel called El Sueno Tropical near Samara. It's owned by Steve Samiof who started Slash Magazine. Slash was Los Angeles' punk scene rag in the late '70s. The hotel is very beautiful and relaxing and it has the best dinner music, bar none.

During dinner one evening Steve asked us what we wanted to listen to and I said No Sunshine by Bill Withers. The next morning he gave me a CD with No Sunshine and a bunch of other gems on it. The title of the CD was No Sunshine Mix. I never paid much attention to Donovan but the tracks on this list are excellent. The Damien Rice tune really knocks my socks off and the Love tune is way cool.

This isn't a DJ Drat playlist but it's easier to post it here than create a new section for Steve. I sent Steve an email asking if it was OK to post his name here but I never got a reply. Steve, let me know if you want your name removed.
