{Shores of Eternity: A Winter Mix}

I make a lot of different mixes, but I tend to treat my Winter Mixes with extra care. I mixed in some old tunes with some new, and generally try and introduce people to certain types of music they never thought they'd like. Hopefully I've succeeded. Enjoy! (Cover art by No Moda)
