I started this mix a couple of weeks ago and ran out of steam after 3 tracks. Then, out of the blue, I recieved an email from Sammy G asking for suggestions for a 'Mix of Mixers' mix. This goaded me into finishing this mix, a copy of which I have sent to Sammy as a list of contenders. Hence the title. Sammy's magnificent mixes are here

yeah, man! that's one of my 2 or 3 all-time favorite scenes in cinema history. & the mix? not too shabby - trying to pick out highlights is a bitch, as this is pretty great from top to bottom - the beatles, nick lowe, james carr (one of my favs) & isobell campbell/mark lanegan stick out to me though...but man i love the buck owens, louvin brothers, pixies, muddy waters & charlie rich too...

Thanks so much for this, Seamus. Such a great listen. Picks were 4-8, 10, 12, 15-17 and of course the wonderful closer. Cheers again, this mix is tops...

Better to start, stop, and restart than never to mix at all!
