Comment: I saw “Hamilton”  for a second time a coupla weeks ago and it improved vastly, but not just that. This Mixtape will help if your problems were the songs, Ashanti, Andra Day and Chance deserve huge kudos for their work here. Hamilton needed sales to signify, to cement their position as the greatest theatrical success (till “The Cursed Child” which I preferred) since “The Producers” . And think of Hamilton is only the third cast recording to go top ten in the last FIFTY years. Oh yeah, and the Stones. It was a heavy hitting week on the charts, most other weeks they’d have entered at # 1, with a not bad 120K actual albums sold. Incidentally, Blue And Lonesome is the band’s 37th top ten album in the US.
