Comment:

I've almost always enjoyed the Art of the Mix community because of their collective love of music and the mix. As I was thinking about that I thought of an off-the-wall idea. Crazy stuff here: why not try and make a collaborative mix? The only way I could think to do this is to create a new user (epic) and give everyone the password (MIX). This simply means you'll have to sign out of your regular user name (be it Valis, mckbird, Nest of Vipers, or any of the other notable mixers), and resign in as Epic. The idea was to formulate a mix of epic songs using the definition,surpassing the usual or ordinary, particularly in scope or size (infinity ring a bell?). Something tells me you're catching my drift. There are but 3 rules, my friend: 1. The song you enter must have vocals2. It must clock in over 5 minutes 3. It must use the format I've used above listing the album, the year and most importantly, the time your epic clocks in at.*** I CANNOT STRESS THIS FINAL RULE ENOUGH***<br I will leave it to your interpretation of what you consider "epic." If by chance AOTM asks for an email address, use epic@collab.com. One per person and re-sign in your regular username to leave a comment about the song you included. Anyone may leave comments as they see fit. One per person (I get 3 because you can't create a mix without 3 songs and I thought of it, so there!) NOTE: DIRECTIONS TO THE RAVE ARE ALSO CONTAINED WITHIN.

Songs 1-3
Isaac Hayes' gem smolders along in this interpretative version of the classic Jimmy Webb song. Its hard to believe that this song actually charted.
The Highlands is your typical meandering Dylan ode that holds your attention from start to finish.
Tom Velaine's Marquee Moon is a jam song with great guiar licks that always hold together at it's roots.

I hope you like this idea. If it works we can do so much together!!

Great idea. I tried this a couple months ago, under the user"alltogethernow", but it didn't catch on. The theme is key I think. I'll ponder it... ( :

Well, it's not letting me input it without an error message, Can you add this for me?

Cortijo y Su Maquina del Tiempo - Carnaval (Time Machine) 1974 6:55

It's also on the amazing Soul Jazz compilation "Nu Yorica: Culture Clash in New York City: Experiments in Latin Music 1970 - 1977"

Thanks!

Totally ruining the classiness of the mix so far with a 9 minute Ween song about oral sex, but hey, that's what you get for letting just anyone in on one of these things.

Fun idea. I was going to choose Feldman's nearly 2 hour "Violin and String Quartet" (Christina Fong w/Rangzen Quartet), but, chose Corrupted instead.

Great idea! Better grab a 50 pack of CDRs to get all this down once we're done. I knew I wanted some over the top Japanese sounds & was set to add Acid Mothers Temple's Speed Guru as my contribution. Then I remembered that this heavy mental classic features both Kawabata & Nanjo from High Rise laying on the sludge for an entire LP side.
