Comment:

2 CD SET. mix for ten speed greg, who i think was impressed with my music knowledge (little does he know about me!) i tried to give him a roundup of stuff from my collection he may not be that familiar with (without any of the more recent indie stuff i know he knows). (by the way, to you northern aotm's -ion, robc, etc, yes, it's hot as hell here! summer is indeed here & i am melting as we speak).

Surprisingly cool over here on the east coast, not as warm as was predicted at one point. Not complaining, of course.

Don't know everything on show here, but I like the look of what I do know.

Excellent collection! Worth staying up until 2:30 a.m. to see! You've never failed to impress me with your musical knowledge, and this mix is further proof of your good taste. We had a sunny Christmas here in San Diego, but I imagine it was a bit cooler than in Australia. So is it safe to assume your snowman is melting before your eyes? Hope you and XuXu had a wonderful Christmas in the heat.

Ten Speed Greg is about to get an urge to dance and whirl about uncontrollably. (Doin' it in sunshine's even better!) Great stuff Sue! (I.O.U.!)

looks excellent - plenty to jump around to in the (I wish we had some) sun and I particularly like that live version of weeping song. (by the way, it's minus 2 in Windsor, UK).

Sue, this is excellent... I'm so sorry I missed it while it was up "on the radar"... kudos.
