Any Major Week Vol. 3

Over the weekend I revisited the Any Major Week mixes I made some years ago — the first originally ten years ago and Vol. 2 just over a year ago— and enjoyed them so much that I decided to make a third one. I think I’ve enjoyed the new one even more than the first two, but I’ll let you be the judge of that.

As before, the idea is to sequence songs about particular days of the week in the order of those days. Some days have a greater wealth of songs to choose from, but I haven’t exhausted the well for any day yet.

The most interesting track here is Prince’s demo version of Manic Monday, a 1986 hit for The Bangles which he had originally planned for an album he was producing for Appolonia 6. Prince’s version has some charm, but I don’t think I’m doing him an injustice when I say that the Bangles version is impeccable.

I stumbled on Leonard Herron by chance. The guitarist and singer-songwriter is based in Tokyo and plies his trade mainly as a session musician. He has recorded a few albums, which are available digitally on his website.

Also rather obscure were The Siddeleys, a British indie band that formed in 1986. Though they were championed by influential BBC DJ John Peel, they released only three singles between 1986-88.

As ever, the mix is timed to fit on a standard CD-R and includes home-calendarised covered. PW in comments.
