Bobby Gillespie Select Magazine Mixtape February 1992 # 1 Dion

And with one series over, it's probably best to get straight on and start another. In February 1992 in a cover feature for now long-defunct music magazine Select, Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie put together a C-90 cassette mixtape to illustrate his Rock and Roll cool and love of music in his flat in Brighton. I won't quote all of his comments on his selections, the original interview is here, but the music is undeniably great!

Side 1 Track 1

"It’s absolutely beautiful, isn’t it?" he splutters suddenly. "It’s almost like a New Orleans funeral march. You just imagine it’s raining and it’s really hot and sticky and there’s a huge procession of people with top hats and umbrellas doing the Second-Line dance."
