Comment:

Conincidentally I haven't really been making any mixes since the troubles that started here some time ago other than this little artifact I made three weeks ago for a trip to Northern Ontario. No real direction.
Anyway, enjoy: 67min:05sec

Just a perfect little mix, with highlights old, new and in-between.

Fuck direction if the results are this cool. Eight thumbs up from me, as usual. I especially love the 9-14 stretch.

Wow, there are some wonderful songs on here, too many to name! But the Roy Orbison one is really beautiful and, of course, the Zombies always are. I like the range of things from S-K to Spacemen 3 to Dinah Washington. Very nice.

have been on an Echo and the Bunnymen kick lately, so was nice to hear them here. also really liked the Steve Reid Ensemble track and that terrific closer is an old favorite too. it sure is nice to have the website's wheels turning properly (well, mostly) once again.

Salman, this is hot. I love the meandering variety. Have you read about the Olympics protest sites getting hit by viruses? They think it's the Chinese...

Geez, dude. This really does look fucking perfect. Love that Mudhoney/Be Your Own Pet/Jay Reatard 0pening trio. My 12 year old daughter is CRAZY about the BYOP track in particular, which makes me very happy. This mix fucking rocks my world, man.
