While this week’s #TBT mix was more part of a specific promotional effort when it dropped almost three years ago, the music featured on Summer Of The Rub has played such an instrumental roll in my whole musical makeup and inspirations. Both of my parents were born in 1950 and so much of the music they introduced me to as a kid growing up was from this time period. Sounds like these always remind me of better times and the title appropriate, hint of summer. Eleven and Ayres again showcasing that unique sense of being able to completely dial in a vibe.
