Today is the 30th of Nov. and the end of this month so here’s my 30th mixtape I’m posting on my blog also it’s only the third on CD-r, you know? With all these threes here and the opening song is by The White Stripes plus another track almost at the end, pity there’s not just one more to add up to, you know? So I know Jack White loves the number three so his old band get the featured image, I can’t remember the reason why 3? Can someone please remind me of his logic? A little more info about this mixtape is dated May 2005 and let’s just press plays now, hey?

Not bad, if you don’t mind me saying myself? The author Henry Miller is quoted by the Swedish band at the start of track five, two covers with Neil Young on track nine and then Hank Williams on track ten. The newest is by Bonnie & Matt from the Superwolf album which only a couple of months old then or is there something even newer I’ve missed? The oldest is Woody version of the traditional Gospel song dating as far back as the late 1800’s. They’re a couple of 70’s songs, a few from the 90’s and the rest are 2000’s tracks which where or would have been new-ish then but I guess now are all old now.
Is there still any point in asking who dug what?
