Tape #2: Summer 2017

A second tape has been made now that summer is in full swing! A tape full of upbeat rhythms and good vibes (despite occasionally getting off track). This tape served as the official soundtrack to my 2017 trip to Hampton Beach, NH. This is an annual pilgrimage for my family and I. My lovely girlfriend made her debut appearance at this particular beach, so I wanted to make sure I included some of her favorite songs on this tape (which explains some of my choices). The water was cold and refreshing and the sea food was without end!

Okay, lets get to business! Here’s the official CTEP: Summer 2017 track listing:
