Remember The Mixtape: Music Of My Time (aka Music Of Our Time, vol 2)

music-of-my-time

Originally compiled on a C90 cassette, this mix was inspired by the Music Of Our Time (1971 sampler) from CBS and the Suck It And See! sampler from Vertigo (1973). At the time, I called this tape Music Of Our Time Vol. 2, but the title of Music Of My Time seems more apt as it featured tracks from the albums that I was really into at that time, such as Revelations: A Musical Anthology For Glastonbury FayreWoodstock, King Crimson’s Larks’ Tongues In Aspic, Space Hymns by Ramases and others.

This tape is on page 20 of book 1 (of 8) of my hand-written mixtape archive.

Playlist Creator & Web Marketer. The son of a church organist father and pianist mother, South African born Brian Currin grew up surrounded by music. In his pre-teen years he realised that he had no real talent for playing music and he couldn't sing, so he immersed himself in the world of music by listening, exploring and researching. Which he still does today. He served in the military for five years, then spent many years in corporate sales and marketing until his involvement in the re-discovery of Rodriguez, opened up a whole new world for him. He was the Content Editor for Rhythm Online, South Africa's first online music store, from 2006 to 2012. He ran Mabu Vinyl, the iconic music store seen in the Oscar-winning "Searching For Sugar Man" film from 2013 to 2019. His voice could be heard on the streaming radio station All Jazz Radio where he hosted the Vagabond Show from 2012 to 2019. He is very involved in promoting South African music, and is the co-owner of a number of music-related websites including www.rock.co.za which he founded in 1999.
