Mixtape Monday: "F"

Sadly, today's tape, the letter "F" could not be located for a reminiscent listen.  The empty case with the J-card was found so they will be shared but as far as the playlist goes, HERC had to make some educated guesses based on what he knows he had in his record collection back in late October 1984, which is his best guess as to when this mixtape was created.
One unique element of this tape is the inclusion of two pairs of segued songs, one on Side A from The Kings and one on Side B from Saga.  "Segued" meaning there was little silence or no gap between the the songs on their parent album and were usually played back to back on the radio as if they were one long song.  Two of the most played pairs of segued songs on Classic Rock radio are Queen's "We Will Rock You"/"We Are The Champions" and The Steve Miller Band's "Space Intro" leading seamlessly into "Fly Like An Eagle".
Despite the wide range of tracks or maybe because of it, both HERC and MRS. HERC enjoyed listening to the Spotify playlist HERC created based on tape's j-card.  Deep tracks from Yaz, Afrika Bambaataa and Heaven 17 were most welcome though the throwback track from Sweet still seems a little off.  Great track, though.  For those of you playing along at home, the Saga track(s) are not yet available on Spotify.
