This week's Memory Tapes was sent to us by James Newey, who writes...
"I made this compilation for a recent road trip around Spain with a friend of mine. We were fortunate enough to be lent a car for the 2000km we covered (I suppose a huge thank you is owed there!), but disappointingly this car did not have the facility to connect an ipod. As I am a little anal about composing compilation tapes, I saw this as a great opportunity to comprise a mix for each of the long journeys we took.
"The list I am sending you was for our first trip from Madrid to Zaragoza and probably my favourite mix of the bunch. It's a fairly diverse selection peppered with many of my favourite tunes at the time. Including a few Shuggie Otis, This Is The Kit and Culture tracks and is a compilation I still listen to occasionally whilst cycling to work.
"The trip itself was brilliant and a real fond memory. Many of the tunes here will live in that happy place and it always brings a smile to my face when I hear some of the below choices."
