MSC MIX 002 Promo Image

I posted the second and latest Marina Soul Club LA mix this past Sunday via my social media outlets, but I’m just getting around to it here on the ol’ weblog. It’s just in time for the midweek grind though. It’s the perfect hour of smooth listening whether you’re working on spreadsheets, pushing paper across your desk, or sifting through mostly useless emails. I promote putting your feet up and tuning in just after dinner with a glass of wine in hand 🙂 Find music by The Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Firefall, Olivia Newton John, Leo Sayer, George Benson, Steely Dan, Ned Doheny, Kalapana and more. 15 songs, 56 minutes. Grab a glass of pinot and go!

Find it via this Mixcloud link. Or here…

new mix | marina soul club 001

My first mix of 2020 comes under my MARINA SOUL CLUB LA moniker, which officially kicked off in 2019 although there were some early iterations in 2018. The MSC format includes 70’s soft rock, breezy jazz, lite disco, mellow 80’s, island vibes and coastal grooves. Some people call it ‘yacht rock’. I prefer the term ‘Marina Soul’. In this first ‘episode’ of what I hope turns into a regular radio-style show, listen for music by the likes of familiar artists of the era such as Jimmy Messina, The Doobie Brothers, Daryl Hall & John Oates and Boz Scaggs alongside equally amazing but lesser-known acts like Marc Jordan, Laura Allan, Larsen/Feiten Band, Byrne & Barnes and more. Enjoy!

ARTIST / Tracklist
01. JIMMY MESSINA / “Seeing You For The First Time”
02. MARC JORDAN / “Lost Because You Can’t Be Found”
03. THE DOOBIE BROTHERS / “You Belong To Me”
04. LAURA ALLAN / “Slip & Slide”
05. STEPHEN BISHOP / “On And On”
06. SAMANTHA SANG ft. BEE GEES / “Emotion”
07. ADRIAN GURVITZ / “The Wonder Of It All”
08. BOZ SCAGGS / “Still Falling For You”
09. LARSEN/FEITEN BAND / “Who’ll Be The Fool Tonight”
10. BYRNE & BARNES / “Love You Out Of Your Mind”
11. DARYL HALL & JOHN OATES / “Nothing At All”
12. CHICAGO / “No Tell Lover”
13. ERIC TAGG / “Living Off The Love”
14. JERMAINE JACKSON / “You Like Me Don’t You”
15. DR. HOOK / “Sexy Eyes”
