1983-84

Mixed 13 August 2011 by sneJ

Another in the series of personal-nostalgia mixes (see also 1983 and 80-82.). This is music I first heard during the 1983-84 school year, my sophomore year at Caltech — music I still like and have strong memories of. (The cover is the mural in my then-room in Ricketts Hovse, which had been painted the year before by my ex-girlfriend Sylvia and her friend Misha.)
