Guest mix made by WH is a bit different from guest mixes that we featured previously as the band decided to share what inspires them throughout life on the road:
We’re on tour right now here’s what we’re listening to on the drives and watching when we get to our room at night
Here’s the Thing with Alec Baldwin – interesting and insightful plus his voice is mesmerizing. Could listen to him recite a Chilis menu and be fascinated.
S -Town – just like everyone else WTF with Marc Maron – interview style is like eavesdropping on a therapist intake evaluation for both host and guest.
The Ecstatic Music of Alice Coltrane
The Grateful Dead – The Closing of Winterland Ballroom
Skip James – Vanguard Visionaries
Sonny Sharrock – Ask the Ages
Nina Simone – A Single Woman
Gimmer Nicholson – Christopher Idyllis
