{#Good-vibes}

If anybody else wants to come clean feel free! And if you want to contribute it's not too late. PM me for details. Here's my contribution:

Mine was titled  Fixing A Hole:

Fixing A Hole ~ The Beatles

Coconut ~ Nilsson

Revival ~ The Allman Bros

I Feel Free ~ Cream

Bare Trees ~ Fleetwood Mac

Take Me To The River ~ Talking Heads

Uncle John's Band ~ The Dead

Bus Stop ~ The Hollies

Rene' ~ Small Faces

Chest Fever ~ The Band

The Bleeding Heart Show ~ The New Pornographers

Stinging Velvet ~ Neko Case

Turn The Page ~ Marshall Chapman

Little Lily ~ Widespread Panic

Then into the vaults for the last two:

Sentimental Lady / Future Games ~ Fleetwood Mac live

Hush, Hush ~ Siegel - Schwall Band

The Mac track is from a concert at The Record Plant where the two songs are combined and Bob Welch tells the story of how the song Future Games came to be.

The closer is from Chicago's seminal Siegel - Schwall Band's 1988 reunion concert.  I just immediately think Chicago as soon as I hear the first couple of licks of the harmonica.

Love the trip to the 70s my favorite decade! Like I said before had only heard like 3 or 4 of these songs ever. It is really cool to not hear something in over 35 years like Seasons of Whither...talk about blast from the past!  That Nugent tune did not sound like him at all!  I mean I know that other dude was the lead singer of the Dukes, but the music doesn't sound nugy at all either. {#Lol}  The Alice Cooper track was epic, blast from the 80s with that Pursuit of Happiness song.  Crystall Ball is one of my Styx favs from that small window when they were really good.  Hands down, my favorite on this CD is the Loaf with Don't call us.  I used to sing that song all the time in my youth, love it!  I haven't listened to the 2nd CD yet, hope to this weekend. Gotta love LPs!{#Cheers}

These were two great mixes.  Most all of the first one was familiar to me and about half of the second one.  Lot's of old friends that rarely get played anywhere anymore.  I love deep cuts.  They're the bridges between the hits that get forgotten over time and are actually better than the album hits so many times after the passage of time.   I especially enjoyed hearing Heavy Metal Kids again for the first time in so long.  Have the vinyl but never got the CD.  Gonna have to change that.  The second disc was much more mellow with some warm and fuzzy tracks along with some surprises.  Nicely put together.

My apologies to marko and sird for not commenting on your mixes back when.  Dec got nutz and it spilled over into Jan.  I thoroughly enjoyed marko's mix and want to get back into it and hear it again now that the static in the attic is dying down.  Sird, you overwhelmed me !  Halfway through disc 1, I just went and printed out the playlists and listened.  All of it was new with some really neat types of music that struck a chord.  I'm gonna have to rip them to figure them all out, which I'm looking forward to.

Actually, the mix belongs in your yoga room too!  Although it wasn't put together with yoga in mind, it does include several songs that I use regularly in my own practice.  Here is the song list:

Bonatology (Incantation) - Richard Bona (Comes from a great album that combines traditional African music with jazz.)

Flowers On The Water - Kostia (A Russian pianist - I have all of his albums.  I think my favorite part is the spaces between the notes, his music sparkles.)

Polyeleos - Divna (I tend to like the idea of chanting more than actually listening to it.  But I enjoy Divna.  Not sure if it even counts as chanting which is probably while I like it - there is a melody.)

The Way You Dream - 1 Giant Leap with Michael Stipe (The song I use most often in my own yoga practice.)

Dunia - Bliss (From the album Quiet Letters, if you like this the entire album is more of the same.  I use the entire album for yoga.)

Egos Flos Campi - Stile Antico (I'm quite smitten with the idea of Stile Antico so it is a bonus that I like the music too. This will take you to church.)

Tere Bin Nahin Lagda - Partners in Rhyme (Years ago there was a Virgin Records that I walked through to get to my favorite move theater. I would gamble on the clearance table - picking up imports I had never heard of for spare change.  That's where I got this.  I still know nothing about it.  But I like the groove.)

Get Back to Serenity (Beach Mix) - Vargo (A Sounds True staple, another album that gets frequent play during meditation/yoga. A little too New Agey but that doesn't stop me from using it regularly.)

Bob - Otto & Bebel Gilberto (I have no idea what the lyrics say but they sound ALMOST understandable so I'm always making up funny words that seem to fit.)

Chanul Ik - Tonana (www.tonana.com)

Sailing Away - Govi (My go to comfort music.)

This mix was born of a lazy rainy day spent puttering around with my old vinyl collection. When I moved from an apartment to my house 20 something years ago my turntable was a casualty of the move. With the digital age at hand time spent with an LP record was few and far between anyway so I didn't replace it and put my collection on the shelf in a closet. About a year or so ago I finally broke down and picked up an inexpensive turntable with visions of reclaiming days of my youth when I would spend all day listening to records. Alas with the demands of work, family, homeownership and other interests this kind of time never really materialized. So it was a rare day indeed that I found myself with nothing to do and the house to myself. With the comforting sound of snap crackle and pop emitting from the needle I kept thumbing thru album after album exclaiming often "Wow, I haven't heard that song in years!". It was a very enjoyable day and I committed myself to seeking out a lot of the material I was rediscovering in digital form so I could enjoy it more. So "Buried Treasure" was born. My penchant for the deep track, hit song long forgotten or the track that flitted across our ears briefly is well represented.

This is my first foray into creating artwork for my turn in the rotation. I'm somewhat technically challenged so it doesn't hold a candle to anything Marty or Russ puts out. But it was also fun to do and adds that little extra to a mix I really liked putting together. Here is the list.

This is my first foray into creating artwork for my turn in the rotation. I'm somewhat technically challenged so it doesn't hold a candle to anything Marty or Russ puts out. But it was also fun to do and adds that little extra to a mix I really liked putting together. Here is the list.

 yes, there was a cd!  unfortunately, I didn't get it ripped, and I don't have a portable cd player, so I will save your mix for another day.   I LOVE the coloring books!!!  What a cool idea!  And the birdie garland is SO COOL!  I had to hide it from the cats, though, so it will be strewn above a window in my massage/yoga room, where they aren't allowed. (that's also where I have to keep some of my plants that they just can't stop themselves from eating!)
 

 
Actually, the mix belongs in your yoga room too!  Although it wasn't put together with yoga in mind, it does include several songs that I use regularly in my own practice.  Here is the song list:

Bonatology (Incantation) - Richard Bona (Comes from a great album that combines traditional African music with jazz.)

Flowers On The Water - Kostia (A Russian pianist - I have all of his albums.  I think my favorite part is the spaces between the notes, his music sparkles.)

Polyeleos - Divna (I tend to like the idea of chanting more than actually listening to it.  But I enjoy Divna.  Not sure if it even counts as chanting which is probably while I like it - there is a melody.)

The Way You Dream - 1 Giant Leap with Michael Stipe (The song I use most often in my own yoga practice.)

Dunia - Bliss (From the album Quiet Letters, if you like this the entire album is more of the same.  I use the entire album for yoga.)

Egos Flos Campi - Stile Antico (I'm quite smitten with the idea of Stile Antico so it is a bonus that I like the music too. This will take you to church.)

Tere Bin Nahin Lagda - Partners in Rhyme (Years ago there was a Virgin Records that I walked through to get to my favorite move theater. I would gamble on the clearance table - picking up imports I had never heard of for spare change.  That's where I got this.  I still know nothing about it.  But I like the groove.)

Get Back to Serenity (Beach Mix) - Vargo (A Sounds True staple, another album that gets frequent play during meditation/yoga. A little too New Agey but that doesn't stop me from using it regularly.)

Bob - Otto & Bebel Gilberto (I have no idea what the lyrics say but they sound ALMOST understandable so I'm always making up funny words that seem to fit.)

Chanul Ik - Tonana (www.tonana.com)

Sailing Away - Govi (My go to comfort music.)

glad to hear everyone has the mix. I'll give it a couple more days for you all to take it in before putting up the set list.

Thanks, everyone. We do have a pretty nice little boom box with a disc player in it, she can also play them in her car.

Do you not have a way of playing CDs?  Should I send the mix in mp3 format?
