As you know if you follow my quasi-weekly column “Way Out Wednesday,” I also run a blog called “Way Out Junk.” (It is, in fact, what got me the Popdose gig in the first place.) For the column I do here, I focus on an album featured on my blog. However, there are some albums that I didn’t write about here for one reason or another, usually because I either couldn’t think of anything interesting to say or there were only a couple of songs I especially liked on the record in question. So for my first Friday Mixtape, I give these unsung albums (unsung for here anyway) a chance to shine. I also included a few songs from more recent entries. Clicking on the album will lead you to its corresponding entry on my blog. Enjoy!
