Comment:

A mish mash of great stuff I've been listening to recently. And yes, not for the first time a collection under 80 minutes featuring 30 tracks. I love me a short song I do!
The title `The Secret Mix' is one that has been a working title on many occasions for me, before finding a more relevant name. This time I found a relevant cover, so the title stays. It's not a secret anymore, so download and Enjoy!

Thanks to Ed for The Blow track. And to Mark P for The Flight Of The Conchords. Actually the TV series passed me by even though I'd heard good things about it. Upon hearing that track on one of his mixes, I went and bought the DVD - and now I L.O.V.E It!
Quiz for nothing but fun - Which one of these tracks is a cover version?

I love secrets! Haven't gotten around to hearing the Conchords album but I sure did enjoy the show. Also like the Dukes, Minders, and Easybeats here, among others. Nice!

La Buena Vida might be covering the J.Richman song. Kathryn likes a short song....me,I like a short skirt. Splendid mix as usual.

i'm hoping "that summer feeling" is a jonathan richmond cover because it's a great song.

I agree with Rupert and I also like this sweet little mix. Can't go wrong with 30 under 80.

my favorites on this one were Biirdie, Super Furry Animals, Pop Levi and Tilly & the Wall. had to look twice during La Buena Vida, thought maybe my i-tunes had flipped over to a Doowad mix! ;-) more great stuff, Sam. thanks for sharing it.

I am looking forward to listening to this secret mix!
I'm going to guess the Ack Ack Ack is a Minutemen cover...?

And I don't know why, but I feel strangely attracted to the girl with matching shoes and skirt - nice smile, maybe?

Great work as always. 3 minute pop songs are just glorious in all their energy and warmth...I especially love #3 and #19...Hope if I'm ever stranded on a desert isle, you and your music are there with me...:)

Damn! This mix was so secret that your biggest fan almost missed it! Actually you can blame AOTM's recent "website not found" problems on it slipping past me unnoticed -- at least until now anyway. Haven't downloaded it yet, but I do see some worthy cuts here: Dukes, Bristols, Minders, Conchords (recently rented the DVD. L.O.V.E. it too!), ARS, Tilly. Subs (one of my favorite songs at the moment), Tilly, SFA and the Go-Betweens. I'm sure that list will get longer after I hear it. Great cover BTW (an outtake from you previous mix?). Love the taste of that Sammy cola! Buuuuuuurp.

The quiz answer - yes, La Buena Vida covered Jonathan Richman. Sport, I'm not 100% sure but I think it was Minutemen who covered the Urinals. But I'm not certain on that one..
