More (MMXIII).

Some of the best of this past year's music, luminously all sort of Blues-related songs - yet all in their own, reinvented manner - blended together for your own pleasure. Nothing particularly obscure, experimental or dejected, as of for today: but just a set of twelve beautiful, soulful, lethargic songs that we used to play and enjoy all alone, or with the Family and Friends along the year, and that could nicely accompany you through the rising year's special, melancholic light. This can be considered as a mirror tape of the Summer Mix from July 2013, and played right next to, before or after it. Mixed with care, in one take, despite the mistakes.
