This episode, Keith revisits the Eclectic Mixtape - this time around he discusses a heavy metal track which the band who wrote it never wants to play live, a breakbeat track that eluded him a few times, an alternative rock / dance hybrid that blew a band up in popularity two years after its release, and a breakbeat monster lurking at the end of a prog/soul album.

In recent years, the Wu Tang Clan have released two albums: the ubiquitous A Better Tomorrow and the unheard Once Upon a Time in Shaolin. A Recent Book, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin – the Untold story of Wu Tang Clan’s Million Dollar Secret Album, the Devaluation of music and America’s new public enemy Number One by Cyrus Bozorgmehr tells the story of the latter record from creation to sale. The book is one of my favorites and a worthwhile purchase, and in thinking about the record again it brought to mind some recent articles and ideas that interest me quite a bit, some of them even touching on the 'why vinyl?' question Sama and I repeatedly return to on the podcast.

step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.
