Rick West Flavor vol.3 MIXTAPE Series Side A & B Spring 1996



Member since Apr. 2012


Flavor vol.3 (Spring 1996) recorded live from vinyl live to DAT.transfered 1:1 from digital master via coaxial S/PDIF, to ensure the best sonic performance.

I started the "Flavor" mixtape series as a way to promote my night "Flavor" at the Parthenon in Tampa, FL. The club opened March 3, 1995 and my night in the main room started March 9, 1995. The "Flavor" night was cancelled along with other nights at the Parthenon shortly after the famous late night grud raid in September 1995. Soon I was working only in the side room at the Parthenon. The club had an incredible hot streak pre-raid. Many people have the fondest memories of the club. The raid may have killed most of the nights , Yet even in post-raid days the Parthenon remained a Monday night favorite in Tampa for quite a long time. Due to the popularity of the first two volumes I decided to continue the Mixtape series even after my night was cancelled. This is the first post-Parthenon mixtape...

Special Thanks to Dean Martin for supplying the original cover design files.
