Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1961 - Standards Versions and Revamps Vol.2



Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1961 - Standards Versions and Revamps Vol 2

As explained in the 'Volume One', this series of mixes in the 'Molesting Laura' vein explores the concept of artists covering other artists' songs, but this time through the years. This selection from records released or recorded in 1961 (excepted for one exception from the mid/late 60s) keeps on diggin' some old but never aging Blues, Calypso, Exotica, Jazz, Rhythm & Blues and Soul. Hoping to see you next week, same spot, for the 1962 mix!
