I confess to utter laziness on the Holiday CD, Santastic mashup. I didn't have the time for it though. I am on the way to one for next year. I ran into these last year, and I was amused by it. Some are better then others. I did sift through most all the CD's (8 or more). Who can resist "Rudolph, you don't have to put out the red light" ? anyway, you can download yourself here for free btw. I just realize they added 9th one.

Playlist as is:

1. mojochronic-Lou Christmas (Without You) (The Velvet Underground vs Straight No Chaser v Staples Singers vs Salzburg Children's Choir)
2. Voicedude-Folsom Prison Christmas (Mr. President vs Johnny Cash)
3. Voicedude-St. Nick The Knife (Bobby Darin vs Voicedude)
4. Cheekyboy-Viva Home (Pet Shop Boys vs Coldplay vs It's A Wonderful Life)
5. ATOM-Wonderland Walker (Peggy Lee vs Fats Domino vs Bjork)
6. Voicedude-F#@% You, Santa! (NSFW) (Cee-Lo Green Vs. Jackson 5)
7. Pimpdaddysupreme-How KimYe Ruined Christmas (Kanye vs Patsy Cline w/ help from Jose Felciano, Nat King Cole, Eartha Kitt, Nas, De La Soul, Paul McCartney, Average White Band, Run D.M.C., Matt The PM)
8. DJ Flack-Insane in the Winter Wonderland (Rosemary Clooney vs Cypress Hill vs Mexicali Brass)
9. mojochronic-Rudolph (You Don't Have To Put On The Red Light)
10. Cheekyboy-Give It To Me, Little Drummer Boy (Johnny Cash vs Fatman Scoop vs Fiddy)
11. ATOM-Santa Brought My Baby Around The World
12. ATOM-Hark The Snow King's Marshmellows (ATOM vs The Beatles vs Vince Guaraldi Trio vs Lou Rawls vs Ray Anthony vs Nekta)
13. dj BC-Cold Chillin with Stevie (Stevie Wonder vs Juice Crew Allstars vs Harry Potter vs Bob and Doug MacKenzie)
14. Martinn-Blenda Ree Mix (Brenda Lee vs Greenhill Dixieland Band vs Golden Earring vs Bananarama)
15. Divide & Kreate-I Feel Santa
16. DJ Schmolli-Jingle Bells Pon De Floor (Major Lazer vs Soma vs Jars of Clay)
17. mojochronic-Motown Christmas
18. ATOM-You Should Be A Freaky Christmas, Baby


Let me say this first: mashups don't do much for me.

I liked this one enough to recommend it to a local DJ friend, and several cuts made it onto his Christmas radio show.

Distilled 4 times for your pleasure.
Because I am bored I will divulge my methodology for deriving songs. I use Rhapsody for listening because they have had a pretty deep library, though annoying on other levels. I still miss my Yahoo music. Because I work at a computer terminal for most of the week, I can sift thru 100 songs or more in a week. I basically keep a running play list called New Stuff, adding music from new releases, occasionally stuff off normal radio, NPR, LRC channel, and whatever. Just to keep it mixed up, I add stuff from some other genres from running playlists consisting of Blues, Soul, Reggae, Alt Country. There a lot of cool stuff from old defunct record labels, especially in blues/soul category. I toss it into shuffle and passively listen, rating as I go. Very few make it to the next stage, maybe 5-7%. Though some go to other running playlists I got going on, most go to the “2014” playlist. From there, I start building a playlist for the burn. I only do about 3 cd’s a year. I do try to group it some by genre but they all run the gamut of flavors. Since I hadn’t been in the Mixtape club for a while, I figured I had some stuff y’all might like that you haven’t heard. So I distilled from my best to get it down to the cd you have. I tried to make sure none were on the RP main channel, though some are from LRC, rejects and all, but they are still songs I enjoy listening too. Not necessarily in order of the cd.

. Plant’s & Animals – End of That – Just a catchy song. Kinda like Tom Petty meets Velvet Underground

. Nick Waterhouse - High Tiding – Just a cool retro surfish sound, executed well.

Parker Millsap – Disappear – Sophomore effort from guy in Okla. Excellent songwriter, one the better albums I have heard in a while. Was in the ACLfest lineup, but I did not make the festival though

Sam Phillips - When I'm Alone – jumpy little number from one of my favorite girls.

. Jessie Baylin – Holiday – Another under-rated female singer songwriter. A favorite of mine when sitting by the pool

Asie Payton - Nobody But You – North Mississippi bluesman you probably never heard of because there is only one album made late in life and released after he died. I am reminded of RL Burnside whom I did see a couple times when I lived in Mississippi.

. Jamie N Commons - Rumble And Sway – Probably heard on a commercial or 2. Still good song from this Brit import.

The Wild Feathers - Wine & Vinegar - Bonus track off their debut album, which was really good. A bit reminiscent of early eagles

George Ezra-Budapest - Just recently heard this on radio. Don't know anything about him other then the song is catchy.

Johnny Adams-Reconsider Me - Reached into my lost soul playlists. Fantastic singer who never got his due. Remake of an old country song. This was done early 70's. the effortlessness in jumping scales is amazing.

Courtney Barnett - Avant Gardener – Quirky Aussie, with a song about a severe asthma attack. Seriously cool song.

. Shakey Graves – Family and Genus – New release, newish artist. Hard to classify, Album was all over the place, musically, but still comes off as an original song-writer and artist, with a unique sound.

. Boy & Bear-Southern Sun – RP has other songs from them, but not this one, which I think is their best. Kind of reminds me of Firefall from way back.

Raul Malo - Matter Much To You – Still has one of the smoothest voices out there. Former Mavericks lead singer but has done his own thing for a while now.

Dawn Penn - You Don'T Love Me (No, No, No) – Kind of embodies all the things Jamaicans do with their music. No one recycles music like they do. The origins of the song date back to 1955 Bo Diddly. This version is an early 90’s damnce remake of hit she had with it early 70’s.

Rudimental – Free (feat. Emeli Sandé) – London import. Might not be some peoples cup- o –tea, but I like it

Nicola Conte - Bossa Per Due – Drawing deep into my library. Who could resist moving to a cool Bossa Nova beat?



 
I've spun this a good 3 times and it grows on me with each listen. The Courtney Barnett song was familiar as it gets some reasonably decent airplay up here in NYC, the rest is all new to me. I had no idea she was from down under. They seem to produce some good female artists these days, must be the Fosters. I agree with the Velvet Underground influence on the first track, that was my origninal thought first time around. The Boy & Bear song is definitely my fav of this mix.

I found your process intriguing. I wish I had that kind of time. I also appreciated your synopsis of each track.

Thanks also for the Christmas mash. We had it on in the car going out to the country to cut down our tree. I got a strange look from the farmer as I pulled in to park with it up loud. {#Music}

We listened to this while decorating the Christmas tree last night, wife and I were cocking our heads a bit like our dog when the firetruck is near, but my stepson loved it!{#Lol} I am really not a mashup kinda guy.  Will give the other one a spin this weekend hopefully.

Iffen we get some more to join in.

The downside of pods was that the mixes were not shared and enjoyed by all.

Maybe a PSA in the RPeep news you should know thread ?

I reckon you can slot me for June. I should be able to come up with something by then. Oh,, and December mix is in the mail as of Monday. I used some old stamps I found. Hopefully they didn't fall off in the mail. I'll write something up here eventually.

Yes, by all means, this is the time to get in and join up.  It is simple and easy and yes we do international.  Post or drop me a pm to get added.

Here's the skinny for review ...

 

For those who have not previously participated or are new here to RP, this is the basic idea.

Its about sharing a mix of songs with friends like back when people were doing it on cassettes many moons ago.  By a theme, or not.  We have had many ideas including songs with hand clapping, songs to cook with, clean to, drive with, cover collections that you think are pretty good alternates of the original.  Nuggets that mean something to you and may not be widely known that you wish to share.  Local musicians in your area.  Instrumental collections of different songs where the segue is fun or flippant.  We have had randomly generated playlists based upon picking a song and seeing what a program choice based on genre in your own collection comes up.  About an hours worth of tunes.  Some have done two discs, because they could not narrow things down and why waste a good mix, 

Artwork is an optional bonus.  Not everyone has the same resources and it can be as simple as a disc titled with a sharpie and a handwritten playlist to accompany it in a paper sleeve.  Its the music.  We have had some very memorable artwork and packaging over the years, too.  Nothing holding you back but you.  

Once you have prepared your mix for your round and mailed it out, you will generally wait until most people have checked in that they have received it before posting your playlist and artwork and thoughts behind your mix.  We generally wait so that people can be surprised by what they get.  Playing something for the first time without knowing what you are about to hear makes it all the better.  We then comment on things as we generally would.

We also help out each other with work arounds and burning problems that even veterans have from time to time.  Newcomers don't worry about using a song someone else has before.  This has been going on too long to even try to consider.  If a song means something to you in a mix or a segue then go for it.  

The mailing 'due' date will be the third Saturday of each month or sooner if one is able.  This should eliminate the challenge of taking care of our first of the month duties and make it less stressful getting them out.

If there are any questions about anything, post them here.  Someone will have an answer, eventually 

Participation is not restricted to the US.  If you can see this, you are welcome to join.  We have shipped internationally with few problems other than longer delivery times.  It is realized that a foreign member has a much greater one time expense, but it is even in that we all send one their way as well. 

 
You can slot me in for February

One of the ladies started this Club: Not-a-Fish (just go to the very first post in this forum) and we have had female members. And, yes, we have had out-of-country members in the club.

When it started we had so many participants we had to break it up into "pods" of 5 or 6 so the cost wasn't too great and the wait wasn't too long. I really miss the variety. I got introduced to a lot of great music that way.

So I'd like to encourage anybody out there in the woodwork, especially if you have weird esoteric taste in music you really want to share—join us! Be a DJ for a spell and send us a CD's worth of Radio You.

I'm talkin' to YOU, Richard Prins!
And Java John.
And Beaker, or whoever you are now.

Thanks, Culture Brothers!

I did not think it it was it was one of my better efforts. But after listening to Kurster's and Lazy's last mixes I have some ideas for the next round.
I'll post the artwork when I get confirmation that all have received and listened.

Yes, Lazy: finally found some time to listen to your ode to profanity in music. I think George Carlin would have appreciated that gathering of tunes. Have to let you know the only song I was familiar with was the Kid Rock tune. But, never had heard that ending part and whenever that song is played on the local station the F-word is sorta blurred over. And to be honest, this collection wasn't really my "cup of tea" and hope you are not "offended" by that. Is was an experiment after all, right?

 

Au contraire mon frere!  In fact for my personal taste this was amongst my favorite mix tape that I have received in all 5 years of participation!  You had me at Molly Hatchet, only my favorite band as an adolescent.  Really surprising selections for a Jersey boy! lol!  Seriously, I really enjoyed this one a lot!{#Dancingbanana_2}Will give you more detailed synopsis later.
