Mick’s Tapes-Bring Her Right Down Front

Mick's Tapes  There have been a few rare times when I discover a blog and within a few minutes of reading, feel an immediate kinship with the writer.  This is how I felt while perusing Jennifer Rose Smith’s blog SCOUT.  One of her series, Mick’s Tapes, intrigued me, I think mostly because of the introduction she wrote,

“Our very favorite ex-boyfriend who still sends us the occasional mixed tape in the mail. Mick will never commit, but dang if he doesn’t have good taste in music.”

Who is this Mick and why can’t he commit?  I have to agree with Jenn, he does have good taste in music.  I picked just one  ‘mixtape’ to share today but once you pop over to 8Tracks, you’ll find several great tapes by Mick.
