Thanks Kurtster!

I hope I did not come off as a whiny ninny earlier, even though I derive great pleasure putting together these mixes as we all do, bottom line is you guys will have possession of them to listen to and if you don't like the content rather defeats the purpose so I glean the information from the reviews to best as I can get a bead on the songs you like and don't like and use this information to produce a mix that you guys will enjoy and actually play from time to time. No criticism is bad criticism, I do not take it personal at all and appreciate the honest feedback.

By all means don't gear your mixes to my taste, or anyone else for that matter. If you want to put Hip Hop on there by all means do so. Its a genre I've tried and for the most part don't enjoy. I give it a shot each time and if it didn't do anything for me I skip it the next time thru. Doesn't impact my listening experience of a mix whatsoever.

 





Oh, its all good. I actually do care what you guys like and try to cater to that while at the same time putting stuff you do not hear very often or not at all which is a balancing act. I appreciate you guys love of diversity, but I will always try to stay in the mode of whether I think you will like it or not. Except for World music, I got some really out there stuff and have NO idea whether you guys will like it or not. Of course I am always going to like it cause it is coming from my library. lol

One more thing...alright, alright everyone has made it abundantly clear that you don't like Hip-Hop so I won't put anymore on the mixes I promise. At least you can say you have heard quality non top 40 Hip Hop to make a proper decision. I just don't like it when those that are not normally experienced with listening to Hip Hop other than the garbage they play on the radio make their decision based on what they here in the ether (great unwashed, commercial radio etc.) which just like any genre of music is hardly the best introduction. You can now confidently state you do not like Hip Hop even after hearing the good stuff of that genre and that is ok. I do not like virtually any Metal or contemporary R&B for instance; good stuff of not.

For some reason won't let me reply to Cold Misers post. Anyway Josh Roberts is a Columbia SC local artist (one of my hometowns) along with the lovely Danielle Howle. The other cat is one of those I picked up from one of the various artist record label releases I love to pick through, don't usually listen to that type of music which I suppose would be considered country pop, but I could not help but like it and at least it is not top 40. lol As far as Nick Cave being Australian, I tried to mix things up of course the subject of the song Tupelo is what makes it southern and of course any excuse I can for putting Nick Cave in a mix is always welcome. One more thing...alright, alright everyone has made it abundantly clear that you don't like Hip-Hop so I won't put anymore on the mixes I promise.

I wanted to get thru this at least twice before throwing my 2 cents in. Coincidentally one of the vinyl groups I'm in on Facebook just finished a Southern Rock week so I was exposed to quite a bit of it of late. But as usual you mixed in plenty of stuff off the radar. I particularly liked how you used some of the twangy guitar stuff and old negro material to give it real Southern feel. My favorites:

Disc 1
Josh Roberts and The Hinges - Who the hell is this? Pretty good stuff
Nick Hickman - He must hang with Roberts, never heard of him either
Whiskey Town
Nick Cave _ Hey isn't he from Australia?
Lucinda - Oh Lucinda, you ooze southern sex appeal
Rebecca Loebe

Disc 2
Bad Livers - Too much Southern Comfort
Hank Williams 3rd
Tennis - Interesting name for a Southern Band
Pine Valley Cosmonauts
Zappa - Knocking the Jockeys off the Lawn!
DBT - New one on me, nice history lessons on the Duality
Outlaws - This used to be overplayed but I realized I haven't heard it in years. Love the hitch in the rhythm guitar near the end.

Good theme, plenty of southern delights, skip the rap and it's a 10. Well done Southern Man {#Cowboy}

Huh, I'm surprised regarding lack of surprise. I rarely if ever put anything top 40 or even anything with any consistent airplay. This mix only had 3 or 4 such songs and only one even sniffed what would be considered top 40 and that is of course The Band song. I even selected rarely played live versions of the artist that most would be familiar with as well. Oh well, tough crowd! lol
 
More likely: similar tastes in music over the years.

Played the first disc for myself, listened to the second with my wife. Fewer surprises than usual for one of your mixes but delightful nonetheless. My wife's reaction was interesting—she found the rap annoying (no surprise there) and enjoyed most of the familiar tunes (sang along with Zappa, also no surprise there) but her reaction to the DBT number was revealing. She found it both irritating and thought-provoking, which to me is high praise.
