Kurt from oHIo!
Well, first off, I need to apologize for my major tardiness.
I have all my typical excuses. Mostly... I would have more time if long work hours didn't get in the way.
Nice mix. Nice theme.
I recognized 10 of these songs. The other five were surprises to me.

Loved the two Beatles cuts. Especially the psychedelic "Blue Jay Way". Thanks George for that. After watching the latest Beatles documentary, I've become more fascinated with their work.
Foghat. The inspiration theme.
Anytime Joe Walsh is added it's a righteous thing!
I have a tendency to ignore Stevie Wonder. "Living For the City" is one of the few songs I like from him.
"Morning Final". A Blue Oyster Cult song I have never heard. Good job!
"Look Out Cleveland" The Band. A nice deeper cut that isn't familiar to me.
"Stuck Inside of A Mobile..." Bob Dylan. This was the first non radio play song I heard from Bob. It made me dig deeper than his "hits" on the radio.
"Porterville" Creedence Clearwater Revival. Another nice deeper cut. I don't think I've heard this since art class in 1968. Nice.
"San Francisco..." Fever Tree. This song gave me an idea... give me a few months. 
"Armenia..." The Who. Nice psychedelia. Love psychedelic music! I missed this one back in the day.
"When the Levee Breaks" Led... The blues are such a sad thing. Them blues...
"Christmas Wrapping" The Waitresses. There you go! One of my favorite Christmas songs.

Nice work Kurt!
I look forward to your "mix tapes". To few and far between.
Thanks for the work you put into this.

I'm pretty sure my biggest problem, other than not stopping, is I have bronchitis.
I don't really think the Covid has affected me that much... even if I really have/ had it.
This has been going on for almost 3 weeks.
I have most of the symptoms of bronchitis. Never had a fever, sore throat or headaches.
I need to go mow the lawn.

I have your excellent themed disc to listen to yet.
I'm still busy catching up with stuff around the house and on my truck because of the work load I have.

Thanks.
Like I said... it's just a bad cold really.
I tested myself about a week and a half ago... negative.  This started two weeks ago. Tested today... positive.
I've been working my brains out for a steady three months or more. 10+ hour days. 
Now I tell all the people that wanted me yesterday I have COVID... they said they would wait for me to get better.

I needed a break.

FOOL FOR THE CITY COVER JPEG CROPPED

FOOL FOR THE CITY INSERT JPEG CROPPED


Songs about cities or life in the city in general.

A mix inspired by the Foghat song, Fool For The City along with the album cover only because it really works quite well for the subject .  

And a little latitude with Christmas Wrapping, which is about Christmas in the city, kinda, sorta.  It is also my favorite Christmas song and that I just scored the EP a couple of months ago.  I like the song enough to listen to it anytime.  The Waitresses were a local act out of Akron way back when.  Forgot that part until recently but that explains why it got so much airplay here over the years.

A note about the BOC and Joe Walsh songs.  This is the original version of In The City from The Warriors movie soundtrack.  It starts off with the subway train coming to a stop and the BOC song, Morning Final (the final morning edition of a newspaper) ends with a subway train coming to a stop.  I swear that they both use the same sound effect and I have been wanting to put the two together for a very long time, so I did.

SAHB is The Sensational Alex Harvey Band.  

I hope it was a pleasant, listenable little ditty.  Hopefully I'll have another one for next Christmas.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all !

{#Cheers}

I have to admit, I didn't pickup on the theme till I read your list. It is a very clever theme for sure, you still got the touch Kurt!
My fav's
Foghat, I've always dug this band and this song in particular. Great use of the cover art BTW
Panic in Detroit - my all time favorite Bowie track from my fav album of his.
I was puzzled by the combo BOC/Joe Walsh, forgot it was in Warriors...too far back to remember I guess. Both are top notch in the Miser book.
I like when you give us Cleveland themed songs... Go Indians (oops sorry, GUARDIANS!)
A deep CCR track, who knew? Not me, I thought they only had hits. Nice to hear something new to me.
Of all the great Doors songs, and there are many, LA Woman is the most "complete" of theirs. So many good things going on in this, never tire of it despite it's overplay.
X-mas wrapping - I was actually thinking you were doing a X-mas theme when I first popped the disc in (no peeking) so when a holiday song showed up at the end I was surprised. Good choice!

Thanks for chipping in with a December mix, I'm looking forward to your next one already. Cheers to a happy and healthy 2022

Merry new year your own self, and thanks for the soundtrack! SAHB was new to me. Any background on this for the uninitiated? BOC is a band I'm only superficially familiar with so this was fresh to me, wouldn't have guessed it was them. Interesting transition too. Little Stevie is never out of place on a mix disc! And I liked that you used the long version. Only the brave FM stations would touch this back in the day. Thought I was pretty familiar with CCR, guess I missed one! {#Cheers} The Fever Tree cuts were also pretty fresh to me, thanks for that. The Who Sell Out is a neglected album. Had all the Whos down in Whoville rockin'. And it wouldn't be Christmas without the Waitresses! And that's a wrap!
 
Thanks.  SAHB or The Sensational Alex Harvey Band was out of Glasgow, Scotland that only really lasted a few years in the early / mid 70's.  Little known but as the wiki article states (click on some of the names, very interesting and WMMS was one of those brave FM stations) was huge here in Cleveland and regionally via the old Agora Nightclub circuit.  Ton's of fun and get down nasty at times.  Punk meets Glam meets Cabaret meets Vaudeville with Firesign Theatre type stuff tossed in would be one way to describe them.  Most of the material would be too risqué or more politically incorrect for airplay on terradio today.  Gang Bang would be one song.  I had a hard time finding the albums when I finally got around to buying them.  My copies are imports from England I bought back then.  One of those bands that got lot's of airplay here and everyone else had so there was no need at the time to own my own copies.  There was nothing on CD until only about the past 15 or so years.  Faith Healer is a truly great song that I may have used once back in the early days when we had pods so not everyone got to hear it.  Worth poking around on Youtube for some listening.

Not a fan, fan of all of BOC but there are some great songs that have a certain texture and silliness to them.  This is from Agents Of Fortune, the only BOC album I can want to listen to from beginning to end. Saw them around 20 years ago in a real small dinner theatre venue in Akron.  A real hoot.

Thanks.  Porterville just might be my favorite CCR song, Green River and The Midnight Special notwithstanding.  It is one of those long forgotten tracks that have haunted me for decades and has been an earworm riff forever, "I don't care".  I didn't remember where it came from until I pulled out their first album a few years ago to rip.  It is CCR.  Now that it is back in the forefront of my memory, I do listen to it often.  It still takes me back to when I first heard it.  Moody, melodic and hooky.  I also know Porterville from growing up out there.  It is one of "those kinds of towns" with a long and sordid history.
