Roy D'Cour Presents "Funk-a-doodle-do"

I was digging through some old CDs this morning (remember them?) and found this mix that I did for Glastonbury Festival* many years ago. It's a load of chilled soul and funk and is ideal sunshine music so I thought I'd share it.
Maybe it can soundtrack a beautiful sunny afternoon for you.

There are some songs on here that I haven't heard in ages, it's really nice to hear them again! I Hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

There's some great vinyl crackle on here too, always a bonus!





*I wasn't playing at glasto, it was just a cd a made for listening to back at the tent...

Angel Delight Mix

Some time ago on Twitter I said I was planning to do a mix and asked what kind of mix it should be. To be honest I was looking for a genre, I was hoping someone would say electro or D&B or Hip Hop etc.

But no, Ms Codex rather helpfully suggested "Angel Delight". As she was the only one to reply I had little choice in the matter, Angel Delight it was!

To be honest it wasn't hard for me to figure out what this would contain, in fact it was ideal for a lot of stuff I wanted to put out there.
I have been holding back on this, hence the long wait, because I had wanted to record a proper podcast so I could talk about the music too, however I still haven't got round to buying a microphone!

So rather than sit on this any longer I thought I'd throw them together in a 'mix' (not really appropriate, as they are hardly mixed at all) and send it out into the world.

These are happy songs, songs that Delight, songs for, from and about Angels. They're songs that never fail to lift my mood, they always make me smile, hopefully they will you too.
