Comment:

Over on the Elliott Smith message board, www.sweetaddy.com, a mix CD exchange was organized. The guy I was picked to make a mix for is a crotchety older British guy who I know little about except that he hates Jeff Buckley and Muse. So I focused on making a mix of music about which he could hopefully find little to criticize, mostly passing up on the more twee elements of my collection. I sent it off a couple weeks ago and haven't heard anything from him. Just another on the long list of recent mix CD recipients who had nothing to say about the mixes they received. And out of the mix trade, the CD I received contained the likes of Yes and Jethro Tull. Sometimes you just can't win.PS. That MP3 of the A-Sides song should turn about a hundred people here on AOTM into fans of the band. And if you aren't crazy about either that or the Bingo Trappers song, then you're just plain crazy.

Well, screw him. I'd definitely be into this, based on the few tracks I recognize and the samples you provide. Sure, it's not "Thick as a Brick," but, hey, what is?

(Ok, I should probably point out that I have a weak spot for Yes every now and then... but not something I'd throw into a mix exchange.)

I guess I'm not just plain crazy, since I really enjoyed the tracks by the A-Sides and the Bingo Trappers that you were kind enough to provide mp3 links too. The latter sounds like a lost Pavement single, and the former has some great harmonies and drum beats. Rest of the mix looks good. You can only hope that the recipient was involved in an ugly lorry accident before he had a chance to leave glowing feedback.

Thanks for the downloads. My mom does it better? She didn't earn MILF-of-the-Month for naught!
