If you’re like most of us, you’ve always had that one friend that will hook you up with the fresh mix tapes from time to time. You know, those tapes filled with tons of records you’ve never heard and they all have that nice snap, crackle and pop? The ones everyone asks you about when they hear them?
Well, here at the BBQ we’ve found one of those friends and he’s on the next level! Amir was here last week to pass us a quick mix of some of his top shelf 45s. Some you may know, most you won’t. Regardless, this will be one of those your friends ask you about… please share the wealth and let ’em know where to get more – over here at the BBQ!
