You're wonderful and I love you. The fact that you managed to include "Reoccurring Dreams" on a romantic mix for me (let alone follow it up with that particular Etta James track) would be reason enough. The fact that the rest of this is fantastic doesn't hurt, either, particularly the Salt 'n' Pepa, Sam Cooke, Camille Yarbrough, Small Faces and Wreckless Eric songs. Lastly, that Howlin' Wolf-to-Otis Redding transition is gorgeous.

A fantastic trio, Ms Queen. The opener and closer, 5-7 and 11-15 runs are gorgeous.

Oh to have a woman who made mixes for me like this, guess I'll just have to make do with 'H.' (Yeh I'm only brave enough to write that cos I know she won't ever see it ha)

Now that I've *really* digested this one, I wanted to tell you that: 1) that Billie Holiday to Superchunk transition is beyond genius, and 2) those last four songs--both as sequencing choices and as recordings--are unbelievably wonderful. Thanks again. This is definitely my favorite of the three.
