Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1985, 1986 and 1987 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.26 (MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2017-06-13 We've reached 1985 and most of music is in a really bad shape. Music marketing is starting to morph thanks to the Grateful Dead who re-invented the direct-to-fan business the previous year, but music production is still hitting an unsurpassed low, almost everywhere. It might come as a surprise to everyone following this series of mixes of cover songs all recorded or released the same year, but there's no much sense in keeping on digging for many more months through mid-1980s music, while there's so much quality music from other periods… Which is why we've decided to hurry things up a little bit, with a mix gathering covers released between 1985 and 1987. Hope you'll like it! Tracklisting : 01. John Zorn - The Sicilian Clan (from 'The Big Gundown' album, 1986 / Nonesuch) ENNIO MORRICONE cover, more info on wikipedia 02.
