This Monday's Spiritland mix by John Doran up on Mixcloud

So, do you want a four hour mix of funk, psych and low slung grooves straight from vinyl to soothe your midweek brow?

Recorded live at Spiritland, Kings Cross, London, on a ridiculously extravagant set up and speakers big enough to set up home in, the mix starts with David Axelrod's Songs Of Experience and ends with his Songs Of Innocence and covers a lot of ground in between.

The mix features choice cuts from Elliott Fisher, Patti Jo, Sun Ra, The Undisputed Truth, John Coltrane, Lou Rawls, The Headhunters, Barrabas, Funkadelic, Magma, Zia, David Bowie, Larry Young, Annette Peacock, Warren Zevon, Jane Weaver, Adriano Celentano, Fairport Convention, Bo Didley, CK Mann & His Funky Carousel, Insanlar, Curtis Mayfield, John Lee Hooker, Ziad Rahbani, Can, John Cale, Terry Riley, The Primates, Mike Sena, Sergio Mendez & Brazil 77, The Stranglers, Pastor TL Barrett and probably some others I've forgotten about.
