The Devil Made Me Do It – The Cover Art


Here’s the cover art for my latest mix, The Devil Made Me Do It. This two-disc set compiles songs from one of my favorite blogs – The Devil’s Music ( This site is run by Devil Dick, a crate digger from New Jersey who converts his fuzziest, funkiest 45s over to MP3 and posts the results. His site is a wealth of rare and outrageous music, and he was kind enough to let me pick out a disc’s worth of my favorite tunes from his site. He then went one better and chipped in a bonus disc of some of his own favorites. That’s 45 songs total, and a very good chance that even the craziest music fan has only heard of a couple of these titles.

All of the tunes listed below are available for free download from DD’s blog. To encourage traffic to his site, I’m only posting the two songs that I’ve already uploaded here. Many thanks to Dick for doing all the dirty work and sharing the nuggets with us freshly pressed slackers…

    I think this is my favorite cover from all your CD mixes.

    Your proficiency with kerning and letting are beginning to trouble me though.
