...A Mix of BlackForrestry- End of Summer 2010 mixtape 1...

So, I love mixes- tapes, CDs, downloads, whatever. I enjoy exposing new artists and creating a new found respect for old acts. There's just something about hearing a song bumped up against other random songs. It can be like hearing it for the first time- even if you've heard it hundreds of times before. I am constantly compiling new mixes in my head, and more often than not, I am working on a project to get music into the hands of the people within my sphere of influence. That leads to this post. As I was working on my latest mix, I had this bright idea- I should post the music on this blog. This would save me the time of burning multiple CDs for multiple people, and it would make the music accessible to more people, and they could download it at their leisure, while checking out bands' websites. It sounded like a Win/Win situation to me. So, this is my very first attempt at posting music on a blog. If everything goes well, you should be able to download the mix from a link below. Wish me luck......and enjoy.....
