solid year imo

mookieproof, Monday, 11 June 2018 14:09 (nine months ago) Permalink

it's an interesting year to me. there's such a huge divergence between the us and the uk music scenes at that juncture.

Arch Bacon (rushomancy), Monday, 11 June 2018 14:16 (nine months ago) Permalink

There’s a lot of music missing from Mixcloud GO! 1971 because there was a lot fucking terrible music released that year.


Mr. Snrub, Tuesday, 12 June 2018 11:09 (nine months ago) Permalink

It's meant in the sense that there's a lot of terrible music released any year; 1971 wasn't really special in that regard.

Michael Daddino, Tuesday, 12 June 2018 11:23 (nine months ago) Permalink

I even had in mind making a separate mix for some of the horrifying stuff (as well as the just plain odd stuff) I found, but I'm trying to keep it posi and everything.

Michael Daddino, Tuesday, 12 June 2018 11:28 (nine months ago) Permalink

Love this, and will spend 24 hours with it when the time comes.

I love this kind of thing, looks excellent

This looks great. Cheers for sharing.

Great stuff. Really enjoying the 7-8am mix right now.
(not at all biased by the fact that I was also born that year)

the water wheel! these are really fantastic

ogmor, Thursday, 14 June 2018 11:09 (nine months ago) Permalink

These look really great, I'm going to give them a proper listen next week when I'll have a bit more time. The early '70s as a musical era really fascinates me.

So much 1971, so little time

Nice work dude

same deal here - i'm up early for no particular reason, and saw this thread for the first time so i'm heading back to the beginning. tracklists look great, a good mix of a few things that i know (and really like) and lots of things that i don't know!

It's my birthday!

Thank you for these Michael!

I am late to this but enjoyed 6am to 7am on my lunch break today. The 70's are probably my least explored decade from probably 1920s onwards, so these mixes are going to give me a lot of material to explore!

Minister of the Pillow (fionnland), Wednesday, 20 June 2018 12:11 (nine months ago) Permalink

I am very grateful that ILx is listening.

Part 9 is up. Sir Victor Uwaifo, Michel Polnareff, Milton Nascimento, Pink Floyd, George and Tammy, and more! https://www.mixcloud.com/epicharmus/mixcloud-go-1971-2pm-to-3pm/

(I'm a bit embarrassed to ask but will there be a Spotify playlist? These are fabulous, btw.)

The shard-borne beetle with his drowsy hums (Chinaski), Thursday, 21 June 2018 12:42 (nine months ago) Permalink

my guess is that 70% of this stuff isn't on Spotify

enochroot, Thursday, 21 June 2018 13:37 (nine months ago) Permalink

awesome, was waiting for meddle to show up

Arch Bacon (rushomancy), Thursday, 21 June 2018 13:39 (nine months ago) Permalink

Oh wow, totally missed this thread. Nice dovetail with the polls on the Have a Nice Day comps, which are also currently covering 1971. And with me having reached 1971 in Nixonland. And the fact that I'm listening to a massive 1971 playlist of my own at this very minute.

Rep. Bob Excellentfrappuccino (Old Lunch), Thursday, 21 June 2018 14:08 (nine months ago) Permalink

No Spotify playlist this time around, and not just because a bunch of stuff I've used isn't on the service. After a few months of posting my Spotify GO! 1950 playlist, songs started disappearing, and I don't want THAT happening again--though of course there's always a chance Mixcloud will get a little more restrictive about what can and can't be used in mixes.

Michael Daddino, Thursday, 21 June 2018 15:29 (nine months ago) Permalink

only on first mix...this is fascinating.

Hunt3r, Thursday, 21 June 2018 16:24 (nine months ago) Permalink

And now, part 10—the happy hour mix—is up: https://www.mixcloud.com/epicharmus/mixcloud-go-1971-3pm-to-4pm/

I'm only partway into volume 2, but these are absolutely beautiful. Thank you!

6PM to 7PM. The heavy hour of *Mixcloud GO! 1971* approaches: metal, Mozart, madness, and Moondog: https://www.mixcloud.com/epicharmus/mixcloud-go-1971-6pm-to-7pm/

Damn this owns. I did the 7pm ep that i’d describe as ‘afro cuban jazz intenso hour’ for a morning 10k run, then went to 6pm bluesmetal and more for my commute.ive not read the descriptions or playlists, so my characterizations may be RONG, but this project is the best, man.

Hunt3r, Thursday, 28 June 2018 14:22 (eight months ago) Permalink

Thanks Hunt3r!

My computer got borked yesterday, so here's 7PM to 8PM, posted belatedly: https://www.mixcloud.com/epicharmus/mixcloud-go-1971-7pm-to-8pm/

Just making my through the 5pm to 6pm mix, and huh, I never realized that Happy Mondays song was a cover:

John Kongos
“He’s Gonna Step on You Again”
From Kongos (Fly)
Released in 1971

enochroot, Monday, 2 July 2018 12:40 (eight months ago) Permalink

Oh yeah. They also covered another one of his songs, "Tokoloshe Man," for the *Rubaiyat* compilation.

Michael Daddino, Tuesday, 3 July 2018 11:13 (eight months ago) Permalink

Funk and other mega-gold nuggets. _draw your brakes_!!!!

this whole shebang, fuck yeah.

Hunt3r, Tuesday, 3 July 2018 14:53 (eight months ago) Permalink

also the stevie/jj cale/happy end sequence from 9-10 🤯 amazing

Truly marvelous work. (And if anyone needs it, I should note http://www.mixcloud-downloader.com/ exists.)

There are drones drones drones (and proto-disco) (and proto-punk) in the latest installment of *Mixcloud GO! 1971*: https://www.mixcloud.com/epicharmus/mixcloud-go-1971-1am-to-2am/

This is the spooky Halloween mix, mainly avant but keyed to maybe the biggest rock & roll warhorse of them all:

The combination of Mix Number Three and instant cold brew coffee (espresso from the machine mixed with ice cold water) had made my morning at work exceptional. Thanks Michael! Plus I think you forgot to post 5am to 6am!

Anyone used Mixcloud Pro? If so, any cop?

piscesx, Wednesday, 25 July 2018 13:08 (seven months ago) Permalink

I listened to 1 and 2 from 6:10 to 8:10a today while on the bike they are (still) completely fantastic. Hey Love came on during an easy climb, as the sun was getting over the ridge it was NICE.
