Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.50 The Last Mix)

So here we are, this is it, pretty much one year on from when I started uploading these mixes we reach volume 50, the last CD that I sent down to Annette a month or so before she died. At the time I was half way through getting tracks together for volume 51 so a […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.49)

Highlights of Volume 49, the penultimate mix: A nice father and son couplet, Tim Buckley doing the original version of “Song To The Siren” that was beautifully covered (and in my opinion improved) by This Mortal Coil, followed by Jeff’s cover (and in my opinion improved) version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”. There’s also a bit […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.48)

Volume 48, down to the final three mixes. Highlights of number 48 include: a great track from the RFTC/Sonny Vincent collaboration album “Vintage Piss”, a bit of 90s nostalgia with the track by The Sundays (love her voice!), a bit of pop with Grimes and Let’s Eat Grandma (I remember Net saying she loved this […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.47)

Volume 47.

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.46)

More beauties on volume 46. Immune were a really interesting progressive/experimental rock/metal act that unfortunately only lasted for one album, 1/F, which is well worth your investigating if you can find it. A classic Aphex Twin tune from Selected Ambient Works follows that. Later on there’s the unusual and pretty amusing cover by Ned’s Atomic […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.45)

Disc number 45, we’re really on the home stretch now! Starting with the unusual Elastica cover and a track from Ulver’s last album, experimental, ambient, a loooong way from their Norwegian black metal beginnings! The mix then continues in the now familiar genre shuffle, some surf rock, a bit of post punk, a splash of […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.44)

Volume 44 begins with yet another track by Courtney Barnett, the third in four mixes, I was clearly a bit obsessed by her album at the time! It’s followed by one of my favourite ever cover versions and track four is quite poignant currently, although Keith does not feature on this DJ album, it was […]
