Any Major Summer Vol. 4

The title of a rather peculiar Beach Boys instrumental once announced that “Fall Breaks And Back To Winter”. And so it is for the northern hemisphere. Summer”s gone, and here is a fourth summer mix to say farewell till next year. For us in the southern half of the globe, of course, summer is still coming.

This mix brings the summer comps to a full cycle: I posted the first summer mix during the northern winter, to warm you up. The second mix was in spring, by way of anticipation. The third mix was posted during summer, which made sense. And now the fourth goes out in the autumn.

There”s still enough for a fourth mix (yes, with The Doors closing the series).


As always, the mix fits on a CD-R and includes bright, summery covers. PW same as always.

    “There’s still enough for a fourth mix (yes, with The Doors closing the series).”

    Do you mean a fifth mix??

    I don’t think I understand the reference to The Doors closing the series. I guess I’ll have to download it (which I’m doing now) to see if it’s a hidden track. I keep expecting to see “Bummer In The Summer” by Love in this series. Who can forget Arthur Lee’s immortal line, “In the middle of the summer I had a job bein’ a plumber?”
    Thanks, Dude.

    (Nope. No Doors but there is a surprise at the end.)

    Summer’s just about clinging on in my neck of the woods so this is a very welcome reminder of long, sun-burnished days, balmy nights and tunes known and unknown to while away the time in the great deckchair of life!! Many thanks as always.
