Another Safari For Your Soul: Grzimek Safari Two, A Flash Strap Mix

So maybe it's crazy to drop another mix so soon after the last, but, you know, I made two. They're both chock-a-block with great songs. What am I gonna do, arbitrarily withhold the second one? No. I have better things to do than to not do this...

Anyway, here it is. Your second helping of Grzimek Safari, and another guide through but a few fertile corners of the internet. Use this to usher in your summer, if you like, or as a soundtrack to the act of steering your amphibious car into a bloat of hippos. I hope you enjoy.

2. The Empty Foxhole- Ornette Coleman
3. Outlaw- Eugene McDaniels

so glad "safari" is on there. that don everly album has spent some time with me and morgan on the porch lately: a perfect setting for such a thing. we'll try this new mix on the porch, too. wish you were here to sit with us and gaze at the lights of the power plant at night.

miss when your mixes came on cassette,
