Comment:

one day i'll buy a factory & i'll assemble you
on a production line
i'll build a million of you baby
& every single one of them will be mine

this was really bittersweet to bring myself to complete. big thanks to salman for the miracles song; to barry for reminding me how beautiful that microphones song is via his incredible boo mix a few months back; & to marc for reminding me to finally use the undertones song via his springtime for chico mix a little while back. title from mr. lowe.

A lot of greatness here, and Ryan Adams always does me in. And that's one great song.

You are very welcome Ant. It's been a long time since I even checked the site and it is just lovely to hear someone praise what I consider to be my best mix.

Enough about me, this is beautiful. 14 to fade gives me goosebumps. 1-13 grab me too. Wow! Your best ever? I'll check what I've missed and confirm that but boy this is good.

this one looks loaded with good tunes, Anthony. it certainly does have a halo of melancholy though; best wishes from over here in Seattle, my friend.

Man, you're more than welcome for that Miracles track. I love the duets and 10 and 16 are some of my faves. Also really digging that Belle and Sebastian and TVZ songs. Great mix.
