This mix takes more of a kitchen sink approach compared to the mixes I've posted previously. The common thread being that most of the songs used were self-released by the artists themselves, hence the name of the mix (Private Mind Garden, in case you had trouble filling in the blanks.) Also, I bought most of these on a recent trip to Texas for the Austin Record Convention, so this is kind of my way of processing some of the music that was consumed on that voyage. Much respect to Rich/Rockadelic and Dave at Friends Of Sounds, which is where most of these records came from. I don't think anyone will like every song on here (except me) and everyone should find at least something that moves them. If not, sorry for wasting your time.

The songs are recorded as individual tracks by the way, if anyone has trouble downloading just give me a holler. This hi-tech stuff is pretty new to me.
