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
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,
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.
