    Found 2 Comps

    I was cleaning out my storage closet where all my CDs are housed, and found a stack of what I assumed were blank CDs & DVDs. I'm sitting with my laptop checking the discs to make sure they are blank, when I find 2 gems in the stack. I haven't listened to either in a long time, and at some point they obviously became separated from their case/tracklist. No info was encoded on the disc, so I listened to both, was wowed by the music, and pieced together the tracklists. Doing a little Rave Rec searching, I found them.

    Nice find, JD. I just picked up the Magnolia Electric Co. album with Talk to Me Devil, again. Better late than never.

    I just played one of your comps last week and wondered where/how you were.

    Cheers!

    I've got all of mine in binders, and I mean all of them. Last week I pulled out Christmas comps by Mr. Midfi and you. That took me to some others I hadn't spun in years, which was nice.

    Too many discs, way too little time.

    Even I forgot about that one. Most of those songs were soundboard recordings from archive.org. I haven't checked that site in ages. Speaking of which just the other night on a 2 hour car ride I listened to that stellar Calexico show from Stockholm - April, 2003. Never did find another show with such good recording quality there but plenty of cool stuff nonetheless.

    One of these days I should do an all covers comp. Calexico doing Link Ray, Califone doing 'Stones, etc. Could be really good.

    I must have received the "b" quality merchandise, I have you on the cover : )

    I know what you mean, Mason is off to college in August too. If he can keep his act together a while longer that is...
