Another Crate Kings favorite, DJ Ian Head delivers his July ’09 Mixtape along with insightful commentary explaining the selections. As the result of a coast to coast Amtrack train ride/vinyl hunting adventure, Cross-Country Digging features a soulful extravaganza from such artists as Bernard Purdie, Soul Children, Idris Muhammed, Ripple, Lonnie Smith, and even Bob Dylan.
"What I came home with was an eclectic set of joints, some for sampling and some for just vibin out to. I tried to make the mix flow between genres as easily as possible, but there’s definitely some obscure selections. However, I feel like all these songs have a unique, soulful quality to them." – DJ Ian Head
