Any Major Favourites 2019 – Vol. 1

January 9th, 2020 Leave a comment Go to comments

As every year, the mixes of the past year are revisited by the choice of one favourite song from them — like an annual Greatest Hits of Any Major Dude. I hope it is useful to provide a link to the relevant mix in the playlist, so that you might discover a mix here or there which you missed.

The past year I have focussed especially on the series of lesser-known originals of famous hits, sorted by themes. I’ve posted one a month, except in December and the preceding month, when I posted a mix of samples used in famous hits. I plan to continue with The Originals.

I’ve also been asked to carry on with the Any Major Soul series, which is going to hit the 1980s. One series which is inevitably coming to a close in 2020 is the Beatles Recovered series, whereby I have marked the 50th anniversary of the release of a Beatles LP with a mix of covers of the songs on that album. The final Beatles LP, Let It Be, came out in 1970, so in April that series will end. Or will it? I started the series with A Hard Day’s Night in 2014; so there are two uncovered albums, Please Please Me and With The Beatles. I might still cover them.

Another series I’ll terminate is Life In Vinyl, which saw two volumes for 1986 last year. I might still do a 1987 mix, marking ten years on from the first of these compilations. But I don’t think these mixes are popular anymore.

So, to the first of the Any Major Favourites of 2019 mixes.

    Some great songs on there but my favourite is Keith Whitley – When You Say Nothing At All. I learned about him via the cover version of that song by Alison Krauss. When I heard him singing stuff like “I’m No Stranger to the Rain” and “‘Til a Tear Becomes a Rose” I was hooked.

    What a great singer we lost in Whitley 30 years ago. “I’m No Stranger To The Rain” especially is wonderful.

    You make some of the best mix CDs which I’ve loved ever since I bought a 3 LP collection called “The #1 Hits of The Sixties” as a teenager! Rock on! – Stinky

    Oh, thank you; that’s high praise indeed.
