  1. Good to see AD reppin some blues. Read your travel book when i was living in the Delta and am surprised that more blues doesnt show up on here. Another great Sidecar entry. Thx man.

  2. Thanks for the awesomeness….. I was going through some serious Sidecar withdrawal!

  3. thank you for yet again a wonderful mix tape!

  4. this is fucking gnarly

  5. So good to see these back in 2013.

  6. yes!

    good stuff. thank you once again. is it possible to download the songs each on their own? somehow there`s always one song I`d like to listen to on repeat.

  7. AD coming through as usual! thx

  8. Junior Parker is better than the Beatles.

  9. that Yaphet Koto jam is so good. what record is that off of?


  11. @maria – I pull from my own archives, so about 90% of this mix is comprised of tracks I have written about over the past year. Just search the archives for the original posts/mp3s.

  12. I’m always impressed by your curatorial skill and ability to make a tight, tight setlist. I put this on and I’m on the beach in the distant past, like a thousand years ago in the Time of our Hippie Forefathers. The cool Los Angeles hippies, the crazy ones, the ones who didn’t turn into programmers but continued to be groovy into an LA eternity. I see a red door, and I want to paint it all explody mescaline-derived colors

  13. Yeah Yeah is (probably) my favorite instrumental ever. Given how perfect the sound of that session fits the vibe of the song, I’ve often wished they’d recorded an extended version of it! Been listening to it for years, and it’s great to hear it in another context.

  14. […] Audio blog Aquarium Drunkard, at a new location, has put up Sidecar Transmission #10. 28 welcome […]

  15. kicks ass

  16. “Astral blues” nails it. Awesome.
