It’s been a couple of months since I unleashed Eight Track Vol. one onto the unsuspecting blogging community so I thought it was about time that I unveiled Vol. two.
As with the previous release, ETV2 is comprised of both old and new(ish) tracks as well as a couple of cover tracks, the first of which is Nazareth’s version of Joni Mitchell’s ‘This Flight Tonight’. A more rockingest track you’d be hard pressed to find this side of 1973. In fact I like this track so much I’ve used it as the inspiration for ETV2’s cover. The other cover is David Bowies version of The Pixies ‘Cactus’ which is totally haunting and ethereal.
And I know that this is only ETV2 (the clue is in the title) and Mr. Bowie has made an appearance on both this and it’s predecessor, but there is one thing that I must explain. When all other music has come and gone, I’ll always return to the Thin White Duke’s back catalogue. The man is a legend, it’s as simple as that.
Well, Mr. B and Rush but that’s just between you and me. But don’t let on.
So, here it is… Eight Track: Volume two.

Upside Down: Paloma Faith
Girl, You Have No Faith in Medicine: The White Stripes
