Mr Double Down Presents Movers & Shakers

Welcome back!

I trust you're all well and good?

With the May Bank Holiday crashlanding over here in the UK, I felt it best to make use of the extra free time away from 'The Coal Face' and bring you another long overdue mix. So here we go!

I've been on a real 50s and 60s R&B and Blues tip of late. Todays mix, which clocks in at a little under 50 minutes, reflects a few of the 45s from my crates that have been getting my attention here at Hook & Sling HQ lately.

There's a fair few gems and rarities contained herein, so load the 1's and 0's onto the listening device of your choice and crank it up!

Enjoy today's mix, stay safe and I'll be back shortly with some more of the good stuff!
