78s Beach Bonanza (original mix)

Here it is then, the mix as I intended it to play during the dj-contest final at the Ghent Beach festival last July. It was the first time I actually prepared a playlist in advance, but, as some of you may know, it all turned out differently, due to laptopdisaster and epic bad weather. Oh well. This 2 hour long mix brings together all the best bits of my previous 78s themed mixes, so if you haven't heard any before, this is a great starting point.
