L.A. Burnout :: Part Three of Three

Running the Drunkard has put me in touch, both through email and in person, with some great folks, many of whom have been eager to share their musical best-kept-secrets, and in the case of this post, their excellent themed compilations. The L.A. Burnout comp was mailed to me in November from a longtime reader based in NYC, which coincidentally 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.

  1. The LA Burnout Comp downloads aren’t available anymore. Where can I listen to, download, or purchase this compilation? Thanks.
