A lovesick teenager in the '70s...boy howdy have I been there!

Liked hearing some of the lesser-known songs especially, but for some reason the Outlaws There Goes Another Love Song seems underappreciated on the radio these days.

And then comes the harpsichord, the dulcet tones of David Cassidy...am I in my parents' fake-wood-paneled den watching a black & white TV?

No striped bellbottoms, no macrame, I'm not in the suburbs...it must be a flashback. I recognized that tune instantly, but somehow hearing the Partridge family always feels a little like being Rickrolled. {#Roflol}

Took the whole thing in last night. (Are we not doing phrasing anymore?)  Really fooled me, there are only 3 songs I didn't love and 2 of those 3 were at the beginning so at first I was worried to be honest!{#Lol} Then starting with Zevon I started to bop me head, was totally into it by Petty and with the exception of that 10cc song (really didn't dig that one) was great from then on!   I always tend to have my favorite songs toward the end of mixes and the last song has to earn it, ya know?  Well you stayed true to that with this sublime Neil Young masterpiece.   Mucho gusto y muchisimas gracias!{#Cowboy}

I had grand ideas for my next contribution involving all the music we saw on our vacation but failed to take adequate notes so now I have to come up with something else entirely.

I'm kinda of not looking too hard in here because I'm still behind.  But in what format are the files on your Ipod ?  One of the few things I know about Apple is that their file system still uses FAT while Windows uses NTFS.  That shouldn't matter, but it might.  If the files are in some special I-Tunes format, then I'm clueless.  Iffen I remember correctly, years ago when Ipods were nearly new, I helped a friend set her's up, but in order to get files from my XP PC, which I still have, I had to first install I-Tunes on my computer to even address her Ipod.  Once I did that, I could access her Ipod and download files to it.

Shortly after doing that and trying I-Tunes out for a little bit, I got rid of it because I did not like what it did to my computer.  It tried to take over my music files and the way I could use them.  Having said that, have you tried using an outboard backup harddrive to download the files to just as if you were only backing them up ?  If that part works, then you should be able to down load from the outboard to your main.

Since you have a MicroCenter nearby, it might be worth a drive over to ask that very question, can I use an outboard to get them off my Ipod ?  There are some very knowledgeable people who work the floor at my local store and someone back in the build your own section just might have an answer for you.  I would even bring the Ipod with you.  You may get a pleasant surprise.

HTH 

 
KURT! That is the best idea I've heard so far. MicroCenter is on my way home from work and is where I bought my computer. You are right, there are very knowledgeable folks there. The Mac I had shit the bed and that was what I used to format the iPod so all the music is in Apple formatting. I decided to go with Windows due to cost and I still like their file system vs Apple. For what I use my computer for I don't need all the bells and whistles of Apple. But I am used to the iTunes program and if that is the ONLY way to move music from the computer to the iPod then I'd like to stick with it. But if there are other options I'm open to new things. Thanks for the idea, I'll keep you posted.

Computer update. I settled on an Acer all in one unit and bought it last weekend. I haven't had much time to mess around with it. I still have to get my library off my ipod into itunes so I can put the mix for July together. I tried last night to no avail. I tried one of the recommended programs (Wondershare TunesGo) last night and when it didn't just work I got frustrated and bagged it for another day. Hope for better results over the weekend. Any advice for this not so tech savvy guy would be welcome.

Ok going to go ahead and post since I am too cheap to include songlist with the cds.{#Lol}

I acquire music very infrequently these days since I still have not even heard all the music that I already have.  Every now and then I get a hankering to go on a music hunting expedition usually spurred on by hearing something I really like the rare times that I get a chance to listen to WUSC or something.  Anyway, a couple of months ago I took such an expedition and made this mix out of my favorite finds.  They are called gratis or no gratis because I usually acquire my music in 2 ways.  The songs that I know I want and am searching for, I just buy, but I also like to peruse all of the free music on Amazon in particular all of the record company various artists mixes.  I just download the whole albums of the ones I think I might like, lots of em.  I copy all of the songs, throw them in one directory; pull up the whole folder in winamp, randomize and listen to them all, culling the songs I don't like.  Then I listen to the rest and copy the songs I love into another folder and then start to cull down for the mix. This is the end result, gratis and mas gratis are from the free songs hence the name and no gratis are the songs I searched for in particular and bought.  Hint; play no gratis last, it is the best.

My review is WAAAYY past due. But not for lack of listening, I've been enjoying this mix in my car on and off since I got it. So without further ado
Disc 1 Gratis - Total whiff on this one, never heard of any of the songs or artists. And I neglected to print out the playlist so I can't really pair my likes with the tracks. But I have to say there was more to like than dislike.
Disc 2 Mas Gratis - Almost another whiff job till Sally Ford and the Sound Outside popped up, I've got this album in my collection (used to anyway, story for another post). Like her stuff. The only other track I was familiar with was the John Grant tune, which oddly enough gets played on terrestrial radio billed as The Tallest Man on Earth and instead of Mother F'er its greatest living person. I kind of like your version better.
Disc 3 No Gratis - Now we get some familiar voices, although the majority is still new to my ears. Love Drive by Truckers!
Overall a lot of good stuff and certainly some things I'd like to explore more of in the future. I like the process you go thru to get to this mix. Curious where you get the compilations, might like to look into some of those. Thanks for a great mix! {#Cheers}

They are on the way. Sorry for the 3 cd set I know we have been inundated with music lately which is certainly not a bad thing, but it is a lot to listen to. I spent a lot of time culling down but could not get it down to less than 3 cds for what I was doing. Anyway, it is 90% relatively new music so hopefully you have not heard much of it. I know some of you prefer it that way so I tried to especially accommodate that spirit since my last release consisted mostly of much heard classics which I usually do not do. Anyway a return to the eclectic lesser known strangeness! :-)
 
A belated thank you, SD. The CDs had been received, but as usual had not the chance to log into RP or listen to the collection, but am listening now as I type this. So far it's your usual excellent mix up! {#Cheers}

I realize I continue to apologize for my tardiness and lack of interaction here at RP. Things are really busy on the work, home and at the Freemason Lodge I am a member of and of which I am moving up the ranks. In the event of my election, I will be Master of the Lodge in December and I and taking on many responsibilities and because a member of our Lodge was installed as Grand Master of the State of NJ, our Lodge has been in the limelight and many charitable and other community events are planned over that distinguished honor.

And at home I have to manage living with my older sister who I share the house with and she has COPD along with many other ailments which I won't go into detail. Yet, it means I take on task of doing 90% of the chores around the house since she is unable. I am the cleaning service, the landscaper, snow removal in the winter, electronics wrangler and IT guy and more. Just going from one room to the next leaves her out of breath. And the sounds of her coughing are disturbing and very concerning. She quit smoking over 16 years ago, but the damage is already done.

Sorry to burden you all with my excuses, but wanted you to understand why I am seldom heard from. {#Cry}

Computer update. I settled on an Acer all in one unit and bought it last weekend. I haven't had much time to mess around with it. I still have to get my library off my ipod into itunes so I can put the mix for July together. I tried last night to no avail. I tried one of the recommended programs (Wondershare TunesGo) last night and when it didn't just work I got frustrated and bagged it for another day. Hope for better results over the weekend. Any advice for this not so tech savvy guy would be welcome.

Checking in.  Haven't had any just plain free listening time to sit back and listen to anything other than the projects I'm working on.  I'll catch up soon.

{#Cheers} y'all

Thanks for the list. I got thru one disc and had NO IDEA what this theme was so now I don't have to puzzle anymore. I've only been thru one disc so far (Gratis) so having the list handy as I go thru it will be insightful. More thoughts to come. Thanks! I'll chip in with Lazy for the brewski {#Drunk}

Ok going to go ahead and post since I am too cheap to include songlist with the cds.{#Lol}

I acquire music very infrequently these days since I still have not even heard all the music that I already have.  Every now and then I get a hankering to go on a music hunting expedition usually spurred on by hearing something I really like the rare times that I get a chance to listen to WUSC or something.  Anyway, a couple of months ago I took such an expedition and made this mix out of my favorite finds.  They are called gratis or no gratis because I usually acquire my music in 2 ways.  The songs that I know I want and am searching for, I just buy, but I also like to peruse all of the free music on Amazon in particular all of the record company various artists mixes.  I just download the whole albums of the ones I think I might like, lots of em.  I copy all of the songs, throw them in one directory; pull up the whole folder in winamp, randomize and listen to them all, culling the songs I don't like.  Then I listen to the rest and copy the songs I love into another folder and then start to cull down for the mix. This is the end result, gratis and mas gratis are from the free songs hence the name and no gratis are the songs I searched for in particular and bought.  Hint; play no gratis last, it is the best.
