Just read my first comment on the mix--it explains everything. This is just tremendous mixmaking in action.

Wow. Not only do I know almost every song on a Curtis mix, but I LOVE all of them.

This is one rockin'-ly great groovy sartorial travelogue.
CD | Theme

Super-prescient and very well-reasoned. A great listen, as well, I'm sure...

This is one of the best mixes I've ever received and the best political mix I've ever heard, bar none.
CD | Blues - Classic Blues

This mix is downright funky and has some of the most tremendously flowing transitions that I've ever heard. Absolutely top-notch and highly recommended to anyone who longs for a little groove in his/her life...

I know that I was one of the three mixers involved in putting this together, but it's a favorite because of the OTHERS' contributions.

An awesome achievement that should have this site worshipping at its tortured altar. This is one of the greatest mixes that I've ever heard--and I mean "great" in terms of importance as well as musical quality. SwankQueen is a mixing genius.

This is tremendous. I loves me some childlike Brit-psych!

Every time I look at this mix, I want it more. I wanna rock. I want to rock. I wanna rock. And only Dave E. can provide the rock that could rock my world right now.

Yeah, so it resembles some other mixes (*clears throat as he looks at early submissions of his*)... but it remains shimmeringly beautiful, nonetheless. I'm sure Michelle loves it. :-)

Another spine-tingling classic. I'm actually getting sick of adding your mixes to my favorites pile, Jim. ;-)

If I haven't already added this, this is one of the best mixes I've ever seen on this site.

Stellar.

Super-sweet.

SwankQueen is an absolute sorceress (no, GODDESS) when it comes to gorgeously impulsive pacing and transitions, and this is the most fearsome example of such that I've heard yet.

Wow. Just wow.

This is a rollickingly fun ride through surprisingly conventional (but absolutely top-notch) territory for Curtis.
CD | Jazz
6/30/2006
This is one of the greatest jazz mixes that I've ever heard--a free-wheeling, rollicking ride that rewards repeated listenings. The fact that so few people here bowed to its greatness is a travesty. The Derek Bailey track alone is worth the price of admission (I promptly ordered the CD from which it was culled after hearing the mix).
Cassette | Pop

A tremendous tribute to one of my favorite sub-genres of popular music.

This is *exactly* my kind of mix. Tremendously attitudinal in all of the best ways...
Cassette | Mixed Genre

I adore SwankQueen more and more every single time I listen to one of her mixes and this mix is a good indication of why--freewheeling, fun and knowledgable, to boot. That's a rare combination. The surplus of great songs doesn't hurt.
CD | Mixed Genre

A super-punchy outing from one of my favorite mixers and favorite human being on the planet. I absolutely adore this one, as it's pretty much right up my proverbial alley.

One of the most uniquely personal and musically fulfilling mixes that I've ever heard.

This does exactly what it sets out to do: shred the speakers. :-)

Just great from start to finish, and eclectic, to boot...
CD | Single Artist

Maybe this isn't overly "creative" or "important" (are single-artist mixes ever so?), but it's a fantastic collection of songs by an artist that I'm really enjoying these days.
Cassette | Theme - Alternating DJ

Yeah, maybe something stronger than Corona to REALLY up the ante...

This is one of the most touching things anyone has ever done for me. Thank you so much.

I meant to post this as a favorite a month ago when I first stumbled across it... I honestly can't think of another mix that I'd be more fond of on this site, unless it's Casetta's own "Quadrophenia" mix or perhaps lo-fi jr's "Cool Brittannia" mix...

I've been wanting to add this here for some time, as this is probably the most-played cassette that I've received in the past several months. Pure rawk and blooz with no apologies... and I *like* that, goddamnit!

I have no idea why I didn't include this as a favorite when I first received it and was blown away, but now I'm correcting that error. Bofus, this has just gotten better every time I've played it, my friend.

I don't remember if I added this to my favorites before, but I'm most certainly doing so now...

I feel like weeping (in a good way) just reading the track listing. The fact that the tunes to each of the songs are all great, as well, doesn't hurt.

This is just eminently listenable, pure-pop bliss. Great mix, my friend.

Something indefinable about this mix appeals to me in a way that's brought me back to look at its track listing several times today. If that doesn't earn it "favorite" status, then I don't know what does...

This is one of the most incredibly diverse and listenable compilations of songs that I've ever encountered. The sheer breadth of artists here, coupled with Orchid's absurdist, impish sense of humor and placement, makes this a beyond-fascinating (and, more importantly, super-fun) listen.
