The Friday Mixtape: 6/12/09

Written by Music, The Weekly Mixtape


Editor’s note: This week’s mixtape has an inordinate amount of song edits. While the prog purists who prefer the full-length epics might take offense, we simply cannot post 12-or-so tunes at 13-plus minutes apiece (and two songs clocking in at a half hour each). We hope you’ll understand why we’ve done as we’ve done and then show your support to the bands below by buying their albums.

10cc – Une Nuit a Paris from The Original Soundtrack (1975)
Transatlantic – Duel With the Devil from Bridge Across Forever (2001)
Frost* – Milliontown (Ballad Edit) from Milliontown (2006)
Dream Theater – Finally Free from Metropolis Part 2: Scenes From a Memory (1999)
