Hello All.

Welcome to Volume Eleven of the MixTape series: The Demise Of The Mask. –(Volume One here)__(Volume Two here)__(Volume Three here)__(Volume Four here)__(Volume Five here)__(Volume Six here)__(Volume Seven here)__(Volume Eight here)__(Volume Nine here)__(Volume Ten here)-

I do hope you dig this here MixTape as it features some fine, fine music! There’s some stuff from Harry Nilsson‘s gorgeous 1973 album of classic 20th-century standards, A Little Touch of Schmilsson in the Night, a great tune from Karen Elson (produced by her then husband, Jack White), and two from Bruce Springsteen‘s 1973 debut: Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. To be honest it took me a long, long time to even give Springsteen a chance, until my buddy Matt Volz insisted that I listen to his first two records, and boy was he right! What a talent!

You’ll hear an 8-track demo outtake of John Lennon‘s powerful anthem, “God“, recording during the sessions for his first post-Beatles solo album, 1970’s John Lennon/Plastic Ono BandParliament is represented with “The Goose,” which features a favorite line of mine:

Now, I’m as happy as a monkey with a peanut machine
Since I found you
 Speaking of the Parliament-Funkadelic collective, their resident keyboard wizard Bernie Worrell is featured here with his project Baby Elephant, which was a collaboration with Stetsasonic member/De La Soul producer Prince Paul and longtime Paul associate Don Newkirk. The Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel song here on this MixTape contains another of my favorite lines:
My only vice is the fantastic prices I charge for being eaten alive. . .
 Oh and do yourself a favor and let yourself really sink in and groove with Polish jazz musician Michal Urbaniak‘s “Atma.” This is an artist I only got clued into from this song being sampled on Beastie Boys tune “The Scoop” on their brilliant 1994 LP Ill Communication. You’ll also hear Josh Tillman (aka Father John Misty) and his fantastic meditation on narcissism and self-medicating, “A Bigger Paper Bag,” off of his newest LP Pure Comedy, which I’ll go on record now in May and say is the best record of 2017.
Bob Dylan is here with one of his finest compositions, “Visions Of Johanna” and you’ll hear what I believe to be David Bowie‘s most terrifying song—released on his 2013 (and sadly penultimate) record The Next Day, here are the lyrics to  “If You Can See Me :
If you can see me I can see you
I could wear your new blue shoes
I should wear your old red dress
And walk to the crossroad, so take this knife
And meet me across the river
Just chutes and ladders
And this is the kiss
American Anna fantastic Alsatian
From nowhere to nothing
And I go way back
Children swarm like thousands of bugs
Towards the light
The beacons above the hill
The stars to the West, the South, the North
And to the East
Now you can say I’ve got a gift of sorts
A fear of rear windows and swinging doors
My love of violence and tenants’ sighs
If you can see me I can see you
If you can see me I can see you
I have seen these bairns wave their fists at God
Swear to destroy the beast, stamping the ground
In their excitement for tomorrow
I could wear your new blue shoes
I should wear your old red dress
And walk to the crossroad, so take this knife
And meet me across the river
I will take your lands and all that lays beneath
The dust of cold flowers, drizzle of dark ashes
I will slaughter your kind, descend from belief
I am the spirit of greed, the lord of theft
Burn all your books and the problems they make
If you can see me I can see you
If you can see me

Yes! There’s all this and a whole bunch of other good stuff so go on down and press play !

A MOUTHFUL OF PENNIES PRESENTS: The Two Cent Spit: (Vol. I) Nah-Ah-Meen & (Vol. 2) Nah-Ahm-Shayun

Hello all. Lately I can’t seem to peel myself away from some other projects I’ve got going so I’ve got to hold off a little longer on posting up part 2 to my mix, EL AMBIENTE BIEN BABES Y BEAN DE URUGUAY. But, I’ll be posting some other MixTapes for you to bump through this fading summer, and I’ve got something here for you right now.

Today, real Hip Hop is over here at A Mouthful of Pennies! If you’re having a friendly cook-out this Labor Day weekend you can listen to the same ol’ feel-good-hit-of-the-summer or some one-tone nonsense rap rolling out your radio every twelve minutes, or you can listen to something other spit from A Mouthful of Pennies! Processed and sequenced for your consumption–my very own hip hop bootlegs–the two-volume set: The Two Cent Spit: (Vol. I) Nah-Ah-Meen & (Vol. 2) Nah-Ahm-Shayun
