Dark & Stormy Summer

Some times you need an album that fits a drink. This is my attempt to fit the mood of getting rum drunk on Dark & Stormy's. In order to make the perfect DNS, You need Barritt's Ginger Beer, Goslings Black Seal Rum and a lime. Believe it or not I have to order Barritt's from Bermuda. If you have to do that, I recommend it. It's worth the wait. The Mix is a blend of theme and what I like to listen to when I get drunk on this drink. Nothing cuts through the Southern humidity quite like it. I used to make tapes when players were more common, & out of habit, keep my mixes to the maximum format length of CD's ~Mac.
