Comment:

A theme mix in a vague sense of the word - lyrical references to winter and cold and mittens and winter clothes do appear on a bunch of these songs, but mostly it's a laid-back mix to listen to while drinking a pot of tea and watching the snow fall through the window and knitting sweaters, or something along those lines. Housed inside a hand-knitted sleeve.

Looks like a warming mix. Like the Iron & Wine & Mississippi John Hurt especially.

Your description is great . . . . I know so little here that I wouldn't necessarily have got that . . . . do you have Earl Grey ?

I'm with Ratchet on those two. I've also developed a taste for Radian (thanks for that!)

The Wad used to have Last Sessions and it got lots of play during wake & bake sessions. John Hurt is by far my favorite of the acoustic bluesmen. Looking forward to the rest as well...

Even though I don't like tea I think I might like a lot of this.

I'm in that wintery session myself right now. Huge snowstorm hit on Monday and I had to suddenly bring out the old lamb wool sweaters, which I actually love wearing.
Your mix is splendid. A lot of stuff on it were on my internal list of bands to check out, and well, now I know why... I should have checked them out. Favourites: 2, 4, 10, 11 and 20. Fantastic mix.

listened to this one at work while wearing a tee, and that worked also. but I'm gonna have to try again as prescribed because it does sound ideal. count me among those who are glad to see you back; loved Spokane, Marissa Nadler (perhaps my favorite here), Thee, Stranded Horse and loved the quiet moods leading up to that great Elephant Micah closer. wonderful and warm.

Few mixers who output I enjoy with equal fervor as yours. Love this (not so surprisingly).

A late listen. Many apologies ( to myself for dneying this me for far too long ). Just beautiful, I'm inspired to do something similar for winter. 2,3,7, 11-13 sounded great. You're the best at closing stretches on mixes also. Wonderful & warm as your namesake mentioned..

Well that looks like a warm CD cover!



Best of the New Year to you. Did I miss some news, like a new grad school or something?
