We’ve been keeping this one on the hush for a while now. Originally it was a compilation given away with any purchase of MIMS merch (sweet t-shirts & record bags here). If you’re a MIMS faithful reader then you know that the “forgotten treasures” picks has always been one of the key sections and pillars of the website.
So the idea was to ask our closest friends and collaborators to pick one forgotten gem for this compilation. So here it is, 16 hand picked treasures.
Doug Carn – Revelation (pick by DELA)
Galt Macdermot – Space (pick by ALTERED NATIVES)
The Brothers Johnson – The Devil (pick by RILLY GUILTY)
