Thanks, and I would like to see this continue.

and my belated tracklist and artwork such as it is.

As Lazy8 mentioned there was no particular theme.  Just lots of hooks, fat guitars and synths with long fade outs. 

Captain Jack is one of my all time favorites, too and I usually make it the last song of a set, but used it for an opener.  Lather is an obscure JA tune that seemed to offer a nice bookend to Captain Jack.  The Stones edit I got from Their Satanic Majesties Request and threw it in for S & G's in front of the Music Must Change.  Children of the Sun was a big change from everything that came before and Major Tom kept things in space with its thick synths and long fade.  The Ballad of Trixie Silver is a vinyl rip that never made it to CD and was a regional glam hit in the neighborhood.  David Werner is from Pittsburgh.  Life On Mars was glam and space and Up From the Skies wrapped up that thought.

Thumbelina is a guilty pleasure Pretenders road song and Tokins, Mexican Radio to the really obscure Acapulco Gold which I have enjoyed since it first came out during highschool.  I remember a trip to Disneyland when this song was getting airplay and it was either the New Christy Minstrels or some similar type outfit sang the song in one of those TomorrowLand thingies they used to do around sunset.  We were going WTF, do they know what this song is about ?  It really is a catchy little ditty that could have been segued into Winchester Cathedral.

Slow Dog ?  I dunno.  It just made sense sonic somehow and I really love the hook.  I do have a soft spot for Belly

The last two ?  Well, when I dug up When the Music's Over and really listened hard to it again after all these years, it still sounded really good and goes all over the place but doesn't stay in one place too long for a long song.  I don't know how y'all minds reacted on the first listen when you didn't know it was coming yet.  Hope it was good.  And the final track from The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway was the end for the second time. They were at the end in case some didn't like one or the other and could be clicked ahead with little pain.

The cover was from a post that SFW put up awhile ago and I wanted to use for a mix.  Not sure how it applies, but its a cute, funny picture that made me laugh when I first saw it.





 

 
I found this to be an enjoyable and eclectic mix of music. I had this in the car CD player for a couple weeks. Some stuff was new to me (Billy Thorpe and David Werner) and some stuff I haven't heard in a long time. The Doors track got cranked up, I haven't heard that in a dogs age. Oddly enough I heard Horse Latitudes from the same album on RP not too long after playing your disc.

I'm certainly all in for keeping this going. I've been test driving a few things for my next contribution. I'm looking forward to Sirdrosephs new mix.

Ok, I have completed the mix this past weekend and it ended up being a 2 CD mix.  I am going to go ahead and let you know, taking Rmgman's idea a bit further and will not even be sending the track list until after everyone gives it a listen and then I will post it in this thread.  Don't even report in when you receive it, wait until you have given it a listen and then let me know and when I heard from all participants I will post the song list.  Just thought it would be a fun experiment and save me a lot of money on artwork and printing.{#Mrgreen}

Hey Kurt, was waiting for you to post before giving my review.  I too love Captain Jack and do not have the same problem with Joel that so many do. Life on Mars is one of my Bowie favs and always makes me think of Life Aquatic and Bill Murray, never heard that Hendrix track and it is always nice to hear something from him I haven't heard.  Steve Miller is just the coolest, nuff said on that.  Gotta say though When the Music's Over is probably my favorite track on the mix though my wife and the cats were looking at me strange when I was blasting it!{#Lol}  Great mix!{#Cheers}

A belated followup...

This was a FANTASTIC mix! I've come to the conclusion that Kurster and I have the same musical taste. So many great tunes in your  MCC 8 mix and many I've always wanted to add to my musical library.

"Captain Jack" is one of my all-time top 20 favorite songs. Yes, I know Billy Joel is frowned upon in the RP world, which is a shame.

"Children of the Sun" was one of the 1st songs I searched for when I had the ability to download songs when I got my 1st iPod, what was it: over ten years ago now?

I've been looking high and low for that "Major Tom" but have only come across the German language version.

"Mexican Radio": such a fun tune and a staple from the Hey Days of MTV. I wish that channel would revert back to it's early days of just videos, I might watch it again.

And finishing up with one of my favorite bands, Genesis, just put the icing on the cake.

Hope we can keep the club continuing. Already have my next collection/theme compiled.

A fine mix and a few surprises. Didn't really figure out a theme, but good tunes is all I need.

This disc started, as so many things do, with a skate video.

My youngest was watching some tattooed young men try to reach their insurance deductibles when I noticed that the sound track rocked pretty hard. We found some more from that band and liked that too, and that started the wheels turning. Over dinner that night we started pondering a theme for a mix disc.

We started with "flammable liquids" but that turned out to be pretty thin. It started branching out from there, like tendrils of flame licking up a stack of kindling:

(Click to embiggen)

As with all my discs this has a hidden agenda: I'm trying to expand your musical tastes. It would have been trivial to assemble a classic rock collection of songs about fire, but it's much more fun to introduce people to music they aren't familiar with. Only a few of these have had any airplay at RP and many of them were new to me when I started the project. One in particular is mysterious: track 9 is listed as by "unknown". I don't think the band is really called "unknown", I just don't know who it is. If anybody out there can figure it out I'd very much like to hear more from them.

 

Firstly as usual the artwork was outstanding.{#Clap}  Now the mix, like that Communist Daughter track, the Ben Harper tune is one of my personal anthems as you can well imagine{#Lol}, MC900 ft Jesus got the ol' rump shakin as did The Pixies which I am always down for.  I really liked that Jonathan Coulton tune also.  Good stuff!

Arrived in my mailbox Friday and just popped it into the player. Starting off fantastic! That 1st tune is one of my all-time favorites. Funny thing is just the other day I heard it on terrestrial radio and wondered the story behind the song and found it on Wikipedia.
