HYPNOTIZED

So the re-edits have officially started...


First up is a sleeper from the second incarnation of Fleetwood Mac called "Hypnotized."



Here's the original version taken off of YouTube:










The track is from the 1973 LP "Mystery To Me,"






a great album led by Bob Welch...

...who left the band before Lindsay Buckingham and Stevie Nicks could make them pop superstars.



Hopefully I've done this great track some justice...

FEVER

Next remix up is "Fever" by Peggy Lee:


Here's the original from YouTube:





I gave it some bump...

MORE FLEETWOOD MAC - NESS

2 more edits for your consideration...

The first is a later Fleetwood Mac song "Everywhere"

from their 1988 release "Tango In The Night:"







Here's a live version from 1987:





I made it a bit longer and more club friendly...

Next up is "Easy To Fall" by Bob Welch from his post Fleetwood Mac solo LP "French Kiss."

This LP has my favorite Bob Welch solo cut "Sentimental Lady":




Love that song....


However, I chose "Easy To Fall" because I felt like if I remixed it it would work on a dancefloor (I may do "Sentimental Lady" later, in the meantime you can find it as part of my 70's AM / FM tribute mix DJ4AM/FM Presents a ghostly 70's radio composite).

I gave it a major overhaul in arrangement, no disrespect, but I felt like the string parts were just to good not to exploit...word.

thanks and enjoy...

Charles and Ray Eames On Youtube

Here are some corporate commissions by the husband and wife design team Charles and Ray Eames.

The concluding statement in the commercial for the polaroid SX 70 by Phillip Morrison manages to summarize the ideals that inform all the Eames' design work. It stresses an optimistic and humane take on modernism, in which technology is seen as the ultimate creative enterprise.

I find this attitude especially moving since it comes from a era reeling from the recent discovery of the destructive power of atomic weapons, and a technophobic skepticism of applied science could be so easily justified.

I'm definitely looking forward to visiting the Eames Office, and some of their buildings when I'm in LA.
