Thanks for the keys, how many miles on this thing anyway? Looking forward to keep on, keeping on. 

While we get a recruiting program going, why don't we target October to start up again. Sirdroseph looks like he's chomping at the bit to get out his 100 mix box set to us already. {#Roflol} He can take the first slot if he wants. Kurtster seems to have a lot on his plate so we can slate him for the later rounds. Let's see who might jump in and fill out the lineup from there.

{#Cheers} For keeping it going, and {#Cheers} to ColdMiser for taking the reins! I'm in, obviously.

Let's also make this a call for others to come out of the woodwork. You know you wanna! We'll teach you the secret handshake and you get a discount at Arby's!*

*OK, you get some coupons to Arby's that came in the newspaper. In a different town. That may be expired, And well...it's Arby's.

2015-2  - Yeah, not a very original title. I gave up on titles for the most part, but this helps me track where I am at in my making CD's. I didn't really have enough new songs gathered, ( I usually start with 30-40), so I culled some from some other long time lists I have running. I think it does have an overall summer breezy feel to it. as mentioned earlier, This will be my last contribution for awhile.

1. Milky Chance-Stolen Dance   - Struck me as incredibly catchy song. Played it a couple times at a bar jukebox, and people invariably start tapping their toes and hands.

 

2. Kodaline-Brand New Day – Picked up from last year’s Austin City Limits music fest (ACLFest) that I did not go to. Great voice, over a beachy tune.

 

3. Houndmouth-Sedona – My boss mentioned that his wife wanted to go to ACLfest this year, so I hunted down some tunes for him. This one made the cut. It’s also playing on the radio these days.

 

4. The Soft Pack-Mexico – From ACL fest many years ago.

 

5. Courtney Barnett-Small Poppies — New one from quirky Aussie. I don’t usually like songs that long, but the guitar work makes it work.

 

6. Clem Snide-Messiah Complex Blues – Something about the line “I wouldn’t die for your sins” appeals to me.

 

7. Cass McCombs-There Can Be Only One – I think I picked up this artist from the LRC channel. Thanks, whomever you are.

 

8. Jessie Baylin-Black Blood – New song from an artist I have liked awhile.

 

9. The New Basement Tapes-Kansas City – Another case where cast offs from Bob Dylan is turned into gold by someone else. I caught an interesting documentary on the making of it. T-Bone Burnett produced with Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops), Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Jim James (My Morning Jacket) and Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons), all writing songs from lyrics Bob did some 47 years ago. Though I really liked Rhiannon’s songs, but I favored this song as the best, but check it out.

 

 

10. Butch Walker-21+ - Though I liked his debut album many years ago, I didn’t get into him much since till this new effort. Sounds a bit like Ryan Adams, which is not coincidental, since he produced it.

 

11. Shakey Graves-If Not for You – Still one of my favorite cd’s from last year. Simplicity of guitar and drum, and still being clever and original is something I really liked about it.

 

12. The Lonely Biscuits-Chasin' Echoes – Probably will not most people’s cup of tea here, cuz it’s that Hippity-Hop type music, but it’s soulful and has an old school feel to it.

 

13. Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors-Shine Like Lightning- Another one culled from this years ACLfest.

14. Vance Joy-Riptide- Another Aussie doing a tour here this year. Pretty good voice.

 

15. Jack Johnson-As I Was Saying- Yeah, I like Jack

 

16. Gary Clark Jr.-When My Train Pulls In (Live In Austin) - Another great Austin guitar player who will likely be compared to the other well-known one (Stevie). But his style is more rooted in old school blues and is a much better singer. I was bit disappointed in in his debut album, but I think there will be great things coming from him. Just a man and his guitar, and he can rock it.

 

17. Norah Jones featuring M. Ward-Blue Bayou (Live In Austin) Just haven’t grown tired of this song. Always liked m ward’s arrangements, and Norah’s voice is one of the smoothest since Karen Carpenter (yeah, I said it).

 

18. Frank Sinatra-Summer Wind – Was watching the HBO documentary with my mother about Frank, (Frank, All or Nothing at All), and to have my favorite Frank song on here. It is, simply put, perfection in arrangement and singing. It also gives a nice summertime note to end this chapter.

 

Hope you all have a great Summer/Year. Till we meet again.

Sorry for taking so long.  Listening opportunities weren't happening.  So everyone was gone and I finally had the place to myself.  The first two tracks were nice and the the next 3 got me looking at the list.  Loved Sedona.  Made me turn up the volume !  Great beat and thick hooky music.  Mexico hit me like a surf song.  Small Poppies was very torchy like and fully worked.  So I'm thinking a nice road disc for going home after a great day at the beach.  Now I got up and started doing things around the house thinking nice.

 Finally got to the Gary Clark Jr track and that made me stop and go look at the list again.  Went and wiki'd him.  This has got to be the highlight of the mix for me.  If Hendrix and Donovan had a child and played guitar he would sound like this.

Norah and Frank, nice wrap with a smile.  This is a great disc for traveling or unwinding properly.  Nicely done !

I got the review in from the mailman 

He particularly liked the Soft Pack and Clem Snide tracks. He is now quite taken with Courtney Barnett and plans on lending me her debut when he is done with it. And finally the Shaky Graves song tickled his fancy.

Thanks for your contribution, however brief, to the MCC. I've enjoyed the exposure to some of this newer material that hasn't often reached my ears. Hope to see you get back in down the road. {#Cheers}

Listening to this made me about 61% hipper.

Only familiar with half these artists and even fewer of the songs. And I love surprises. If I was within a thousand miles of a beach I would take it to the beach.

I will be the first!  Got to listen to it last weekend, good stuff!  High points; Kodalene and Houndmouth tracks and you are right The Lonely Biscuits are not usually my cup of tea, but for the opposite reasons you may think, I am a huge hip-hop fan, but mostly authentic, urban hip-hop.  I usually don't like pop, or pop rock infused and to be honest white hip hop, but this was pretty good!  However the true gem in this mix to me anyway was Courtney Barnett, was turned on to her by WUSC and have been a big fan since, great song!  Lastly and lastly is your closing song, this one has sentimental value to me because it is my best friends favorite song!{#Cheers}

2015-2  - Yeah, not a very original title. I gave up on titles for the most part, but this helps me track where I am at in my making CD's. I didn't really have enough new songs gathered, ( I usually start with 30-40), so I culled some from some other long time lists I have running. I think it does have an overall summer breezy feel to it. as mentioned earlier, This will be my last contribution for awhile.

 

 

 

 

1. Milky Chance-Stolen Dance   - Struck me as incredibly catchy song. Played it a couple times at a bar jukebox, and people invariably start tapping their toes and hands.

 

2. Kodaline-Brand New Day – Picked up from last year’s Austin City Limits music fest (ACLFest) that I did not go to. Great voice, over a beachy tune.

 

3. Houndmouth-Sedona – My boss mentioned that his wife wanted to go to ACLfest this year, so I hunted down some tunes for him. This one made the cut. It’s also playing on the radio these days.

 

4. The Soft Pack-Mexico – From ACL fest many years ago.

 

5. Courtney Barnett-Small Poppies — New one from quirky Aussie. I don’t usually like songs that long, but the guitar work makes it work.

 

6. Clem Snide-Messiah Complex Blues – Something about the line “I wouldn’t die for your sins” appeals to me.

 

7. Cass McCombs-There Can Be Only One – I think I picked up this artist from the LRC channel. Thanks, whomever you are.

 

8. Jessie Baylin-Black Blood – New song from an artist I have liked awhile.

 

9. The New Basement Tapes-Kansas City – Another case where cast offs from Bob Dylan is turned into gold by someone else. I caught an interesting documentary on the making of it. T-Bone Burnett produced with Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops), Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Jim James (My Morning Jacket) and Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons), all writing songs from lyrics Bob did some 47 years ago. Though I really liked Rhiannon’s songs, but I favored this song as the best, but check it out.

 

 

10. Butch Walker-21+ - Though I liked his debut album many years ago, I didn’t get into him much since till this new effort. Sounds a bit like Ryan Adams, which is not coincidental, since he produced it.

 

11. Shakey Graves-If Not for You – Still one of my favorite cd’s from last year. Simplicity of guitar and drum, and still being clever and original is something I really liked about it.

 

12. The Lonely Biscuits-Chasin' Echoes – Probably will not most people’s cup of tea here, cuz it’s that Hippity-Hop type music, but it’s soulful and has an old school feel to it.

 

13. Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors-Shine Like Lightning- Another one culled from this years ACLfest.

14. Vance Joy-Riptide- Another Aussie doing a tour here this year. Pretty good voice.

 

15. Jack Johnson-As I Was Saying- Yeah, I like Jack

 

16. Gary Clark Jr.-When My Train Pulls In (Live In Austin) - Another great Austin guitar player who will likely be compared to the other well-known one (Stevie). But his style is more rooted in old school blues and is a much better singer. I was bit disappointed in in his debut album, but I think there will be great things coming from him. Just a man and his guitar, and he can rock it.

 

17. Norah Jones featuring M. Ward-Blue Bayou (Live In Austin) Just haven’t grown tired of this song. Always liked m ward’s arrangements, and Norah’s voice is one of the smoothest since Karen Carpenter (yeah, I said it).

 

18. Frank Sinatra-Summer Wind – Was watching the HBO documentary with my mother about Frank, (Frank, All or Nothing at All), and to have my favorite Frank song on here. It is, simply put, perfection in arrangement and singing. It also gives a nice summertime note to end this chapter.

 

Hope you all have a great Summer/Year. Till we meet again.

Spinning in the car. Always like your mixes, and for now I'm avoiding reading the track list and just letting it surprise me.

Vol 1  The Allman Bros.  One of my favorite bands ever, seen them a dozen times over 45 years. From the Fillmore East shows and two different albums, the best of the best imho, put together in the order of the set list.  And in the case of Whipping Post and Mountain Jam, one continuous piece as played live back then.

1 You Don't Love Me
2 Whipping Post /  Mountain Jam

Vol 2   Off to different tracks and try to make them segue together to at least keep the mood going, if you're in the mood to be listening to this stuff in the first place.

1  Jimi Side 3 from Electric Ladyland, the Rainy Day Dream Away, 1983, A Merman I Should Be, Still Raining set.  It really needs to be kept together.

2 PF Echoes  nuff said.

3 Elton John  Funeral For A Friend, Love Lies Bleeding

4  War  City, Country, City.  The full version of which we only get teased here when its played.

Vol 3   3 album sides.  The Todd piece is historically significant as it is the longest track ever pressed into one side of a piece of vinyl.  He pushed the limits of the technology with this piece.  The instructions on the album, Initiation, were to play the track once for recording only and then put it away because the grooves were so thin that it would be ruined after only a few playings.

1  Poco  The full title is Don't Let It Pass By / Nobody's Fool - El Tonto de Nadle, Regressa from their first, self titled album.

2  Todd  A Treatise On Cosmic Fire.  I just love the organ riffs

3  Kraftwerk  Autobahn  {#Mrgreen} 

The Love Bomb

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

So that's it.  In hoping that we continue, the Donuts series will continue as a bonus to a new mix.  There's plenty more of them out there and I could put another 3 together already and still not do Iron Butterfly, unless requested.

 


 
Had a rainy day Saturday last weekend and I got to listen to all 4 CDs back to back!  Really enjoyed the love bomb, it flowed nicely!  I like and appreciate the work you put in those volume mixes, especially enjoyed volume II, the Hendrix mix was inspired and any pre 1977 Elton is pure magic.  I will admit I am not really a jam band kind of guy so the Allman brothers are not my cup of tea nor am I a Rundgren fan, but it was pretty good and again I appreciate the work you put into mixing those.  Well played, Sir!{#Cheers}

I'm sort of pecking away at this mix. I will put in a more formal review at a later date. I just wanted to say that your BLEW ME AWAY with Treatise on Cosmic Fire this morning. I haven't listened to the B side of Initiation in probably 25, maybe 30 years. I was so surprised to hear it here. The moment of recognition was about 30 seconds in and when it hit me what I was listening to I just said "WOW!". Thank You Kurt!

Thanks !

The Love Bomb for T was most fun to put together and an opportunity to use some old nuggets for a happy mix.  Rene', an old Small Faces tune from the legendary Ogdens Nutgone Flake LP.  The Marshall Chapman cover of Turn The Page works for me maybe better than the original.  Still only on vinyl ...

Then there is the "Donuts".  It could just as easily been named After Midnight (when songs could only be played after certain hours and the times were written on the LP covers, or coffee break, or doobie break, whatever was long enough to allow the DJ to take an extended absence from the booth, hoping that the record didn't skip.  I've always been into extended cuts or the long versions of songs where a good riff is not wasted.  I have spent many years looking for and finding them.  So as I've settled in to the new place, I've had time to get to them and dust them off and see if they still work.  So that's what its about.  Its for getting them out and keep them alive because many are obscure and out of print in many cases.  I know that its kinda limited in appeal and how often they might get listened to, but I'm glad that ColdMiser had one that hit the spot when needed.

Vol 1  The Allman Bros.  One of my favorite bands ever, seen them a dozen times over 45 years. From the Fillmore East shows and two different albums, the best of the best imho, put together in the order of the set list.  And in the case of Whipping Post and Mountain Jam, one continuous piece as played live back then.
