LA Record’s Funk and Soul Mixtape
Filed under: Blog Love,Mixtapes | Posted by:

Big Foot

Chris Ziegler from LA Record just did a mixtape for his site that we had to post because he included a Delaney and Bonnie track in our honor! Here’s Chris in his own words: “Long Beach has a legendary soul/funk night called GOOD FOOT at a club called Que Sera that Dennis Owens has been doing for coming up on twelve years now. I got to DJ their tenth anniversary for a few meaningful minutes and Dennis asked me back to DJ this Friday. Since I do a night of psych/funk/soul/punk/outlaw/etc… in Eagle Rock with DJ Short Shorts called BIG FREAK, I decided to combine a little of everything for… BIG FOOT! So here are some classics, some crazies and some Delaney and Bonnie specifically for When You Awake.” Thanks Chris! Check out his mix after the jump.

A couple of my favorite finds on there is the French release of the Dillard’s Back Porch Bluegrass entitled Folklore Des Montagnes Des Etats-Unis, Gene Clark’ s Collector’s Series: Early L.A. Sessions, and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young’s Studio Archives 1969 (which features covers of Fred Neil’s “Everybody’s Talkin'” and John Sebastian’s “How Have You Been”).
