Oh Yes, Los Angeles: A When You Awake Mixtape
Filed under: Blog Love,Mixtapes,Original Mixtape Series | Posted by:

The fine folks over at LA Record asked me to put together a mixtape about our fair city of Los Angeles. The mix features tunes by Gene Clark, Flying Burrito Brothers, John Phillips and more. Check it out over at LA Record.com. Any favorite songs about LA that I missed?

The Byrds – Gunga Din
New Riders of the Purple Sage – Lonesome LA Cowboy (vastly superior to LA Lady)
Charlie Robson – Sunset Blvd (a glaring omission)
Warren Zevon – French Inhaler (among other WZ songs)
Jason Isbell – Brand New Kind of Actress
The Rolling Stones – Starfucker

Even better than those: “Abe Lincoln” by The Backsliders. Flat out one of the best alt-country songs ever recorded.

Am I missing something so obvious I can’t see it, or is the link missing? I can’t find it anywhere.
