4 Year Anniversary Post - Live From The Good Life

Back again with another anniversary mega post, the 4th in the series. Don't sleep on the first three which can be found here, here, and especially here. As usual I want to thank all the people who check the site and hit me up comments, feedback, and requests....and special thanks go out to everyone who has hooked me up with music over the last 4 years.

The idea for this years anniversary post was a bit harder to come up with than those of the past three years. The main reason for this is because I'm in the process of moving and all of my music is packed up. While I was packing my DVD's I was looking at my copy of This Is The Life, thinking about the story of The Nonce and Yusef Afloat in the bonus footage when I remembered the 50 mins of live footage from The Good Life. Out of respect for the good people who put together the DVD I decided that I wouldn't post the video footage, but I would rip the audio and post that instead.

After I was able to rip the audio from the DVD I started looking at some of the other Good Life live sessions I had available and decided I should post those as well. Doing a bit of research online showed that most of the links to these mixes were no longer available.

I'm not going to spend any time telling the store of The Good Life, I feel that if you're a fan of this site you probably already know more about it than I do. If for some reason you stumbled on this post and you don't know anything about The Good Life, well then you should pickup a copy of This Is The Life as it does a great job explaining the history.

Most of these mixes have been posted on other sites at some point. Thank you to those sites for making this music available in the first place and to anyone out there taking the time to track down and rip old footage and make it available. Enjoy the links

Homeliss Derilex - We Were Here Before

Back atcha with more of that good Homeliss Derilex music. I don't think this is an official release, I couldn't find any info about it online, it looks like a compilation of tracks from their early 12"s and from various compilations. Whatever it is, it's good music and should be in your collection.
