Balearic Beats Two

There’s no getting away from it, we are well into autumn- it’s October today, the trees have suddenly sprouted shades of brown and orange. A couple of weeks ago when summer was still just about a recent memory I wrote about the Balearic Beats compilation album and its eclectic selection of tracks and artists. While digging around the internet I found a Balearic Beats 2 mixtape/download at the always excellent Test Pressing, put together by Terry Farley at some point in the 90s. The tracklist is below (with Terry’s handwritten explanation below that), the highlights including It’s Immaterial,  Paul Rutherford’s still fantastic acid song Get Real and Turntable Orchestra’s You’re Gonna Miss Me When I’m Gone. You can find the original post here and its still available to download and keep forever. It just might keep October at bay for an hour.
