Succumbing to Cat and Nina

I'll confess I was trying to think of a cute name for the mixtape - you know, one that incorporated Cat Power and Nina Simone's brilliant eccentricities and Southern backgrounds. But I suppose that's something best let to someone with a better knowledge of Southern literature (and brilliant eccentricities :).

(Update: The initial mixtape had two (albeit different) versions of Werewolf, so I redid the comp and replaced the first one with Willie. And yes, my lazy ass editor apologizes for this mix-up. :)

(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction Cat Power
Central Park Blues Nina Simone
Willie Cat Power
Nobody's Fault But Mine Nina Simone
You Don't Know What Love Is Nina Simone

Solitude Nina Simone
Don't Explain Cat Power
Aretha, Sing One For Me Cat Power
Tell Me More Nina Simone

Be My Husband Nina Simone
House of the Rising Sun Nina Simone
Wild Is The Wind Cat Power
Feeling Good Nina Simone
The Werewolf Cat Power
Come On In My Kitchen Cat Power
Who Knows Where The Time Goes Nina Simone

They really do sound good together, don't they?

As for Mr. Lowe, I will be posting a couple more mixtapes within the next month or so.
