Light Departures: a Soft Prog Mix for AOR Disco by J Feathers

"I'm from Detroit MI and I grew up on Steely Dan, Lee Ritenour, Boz Scaggs and all the Toto dudes in their various session work," says J Feathers. "I would have never thought of making a mix for AOR Disco before because I felt that I'd be going over the same territory that most of the contributors already have hit. But recent progressive rock mixes on the site have got me thinking. Most of the records I've been collecting since the mid 90's have been psych, folk & prog. And in the last couple years my focus has been on (if I can say this) soft-prog. A buddy of mine and myself have been doing a nite once a month in Detroit focusing on this theme, and to my surprise, people are really into it."

Hi. This is a great mix. I'm gutted that the download has reached it's limit on soundcloud. Is there anywhere else I can get it?
Cheers everyone...
