In the past, I have only made one mix about myself. This week I will release three. Here's the first one: young old man.
The title was suggested by Rob "Tucker Tucker" Tucker during my recent visit to the Boston area. In an earlier version of this mix, I used Jenny Lewis' version of "Handle With Care."
But I've already used that track on an all covers mix called "under the covers with the mennu method."* Tucker agreed that I should use the original Traveling Wilburys version since those are "some groovy young old men."
