Notes: I love making playlists, yes, & I even love Spotify. 

But there is something special about an old-school mixtape, about moving to a different room, about resetting your multitasking modern mentality into a dusty old-discs devotion. This mix is mostly from old-school folkie -- not-on-streaming-services -- Jesus vinyl, an ongoing obsession of mine. So Easter hippy Jesus Freak, with a few tracks you will recognize thrown in for timely memorial truth. At about 44 minutes, it would fit on one side of a 90 minute cassette. Some pauses are too short; others too long. There is the real scratchy groove, in this an Easter gift.
