Comment:

Make Me No GraveMake me no grave within that quiet placeWhere friends shall sadly view the grassy mound,Politely solemn for a little space,As though the spirit slept beneath the ground.For me no sorrow, nor the hopeless tear;No chant, no prayer, no tender eulogy:I may be laughing with the gods--while hereYou weep alone. Then make no grave for meBut lay me where the pines, austere and tall,Sing in the wind that sweeps across the West:Where night, imperious, sets her coronal
Of silver stars upon the mountain crest.Where dawn, rejoicing, rises from the deep,And Life, rejoicing, rises with the dawn:Mark not the spot upon the sunny steep,For with the morning light I shall be gone.Far trails await me; valleys vast and still,Vistas undreamed of, canyon-guarded streams,Lowland and range, fair meadow, flower-girt hill,Forests enchanted, filled with magic dreams.And I shall find brave comrades on the way:None shall be lonely in adventuring,
For each a chosen task to round the day,New glories to amaze, new songs to sing.Loud swells the wind along the mountain-side,High burns the sun, unfettered swings the sea,Clear gleam the trails whereon the vanished ride, Life calls to life: then make no grave for me!------------------------------------------------------A continuation of the quasi-western-that-never-was-and-never-will-be-tradition of previous mixes: Menace - Part VII: All Aboard The Hell-bound Train, The Good, The Bad and The Even Worse and Espuelas de Oro.

this looks phenomenal, sir - 15, 17 & 19 are most familiar to me, though it's dotted with lots of great picks & some unbeknownst to me - can't wait to listen

I don't know a single song here (no, not even the Tom Waits) but the first thought that hit me while reading the tracklist was "I'm gonna love this". So I'm off to find out if I was wright. Great job.

I can add 5 & 21 to Anthonys selections. I remeber Menace VII vividly - one of my fave mixes, period. I'm sure this is another cracker. And the artwork? Wow!

Lots of great tracks - Sadies, Jim White, Be Good Tanyas - but the whole of the mix is what really sparkles. Great old poem, scintillating artwork and, of course, the songs.

Even if this mix sucked (and it certainly doesn't), I'd still have to commend you for the fine artwork, as well as the research. Castanets? San Diego? Must investigate.

put the needle down on this at work yesterday. woeful, brooding and bleak - loved it, of course. favorites are the tune that ended at the 32:00 mark [Elliott Brood?] and the one playing at 35:37 [Old Time Relijun?]. that Waits song is an old favorite, and loved the cool instrumental track [Jonny Greenwood?] and really dug the Blind Willie McTell number too.
