We posted about this a while ago, but since I’ve been revisiting this great compilation, here it is again. It’s the perfect soundtrack to a mellow weekend.
From Aquarium Drunkard.
The L.A. Burnout comp was mailed to me in November from a longtime reader based in NYC, which coincidental arrived at the same time I was reading two books (Laurel Canyon: The Inside Story of Rock-and-Roll’s Legendary Neighborhood & Hotel California: The True-life Adventures of Crosby, Stills, Nash, Young) chronicling the late sixties-early seventies Laurel Canyon incestuous music scene. The L.A. Burnout mix has since proved to have been the perfect companion piece.
I am now sharing it here, in three parts, with ye Drunkard faithfuls. If you too live in Los Angeles, play this mix around dusk while driving through the hills or Topanga with the windows down — it’s the next best thing to time travel.
