Are there any of these in this thread?
My family moved 22 times in the first 15 years I was alive. I don't listen to the tapes I would record off the local radio stations in each often, but just every once in a while. But only for the nostalgia of them.

The only thing any of them ever did that I would like a copy of for the musical value is that when WBUS ("Kankakee, Joliet, and the South Suburbs") would play "We Built This City" by Starship, they would add their call letters into one of the empty interludes near the "DJ chatter" ("looking out over that Golden Gate Bridge...."), and I liked the effect of that. But I never caught it on tape, unfortunately.

Re: Mixtape Thread

^ That sounds almost straight out of one of my High School mixtapes. About the only difference is a dash of Van Halen. I like it!

There's a reason why Hunger Strike (as well as the rest of the album) is so damn intoxicating to listen to. Very raw, powerful ... they captured something with that album. Once in a lifetime, maybe, but damn was it special. Mad Season was good, but nearly so.
Indeed. And the beautiful impermanence of it, and indeed of its inspiration (the death of Andrew Wood, as you probably knew), I think lend to the intoxicating quality.

About the only suggestion I have is to consider Temple of the Dog - but considering it's a mashup of bands already on the list, it might be a bit redundant.
You don't know how much I dream of an alternate reality where they put out more than one album. Damn...just any opportunity for Chris Cornell and Eddie Vedder to sing together more often, their voices are amazing together.
They are often mooting the notion of doing another album, I think it will happen eventually.

That is a wonderful list btw.
Having written what I just did, I still want this to happen!

You know, I bought Last Words, the Screaming Trees swansong album of outtakes from the unrecorded final album off eBay from Van Conner's webshop, and he signed it for me
That is awesome!

My "mixed" tapes were all songs I taped from the radio, not a mix of other cassettes and LPs I already had. I've divided songs into genres on my iPod but don't have actual playlists. The music I listen to is so diverse and what I listen to depends so much on my mood and what I'm doing that I just play specific albums or specific artists (right now it's Nancy Ajram). Having said that, I'm deeply in love with Ancient Mariner's playlist.
Ahh...waiting with your hand on the record button of the cassette player to catch that song on the radio! I used to listen to one of those radio collections that my dad had made to help me fall asleep when I was a kid. I wish I still had it now, or knew what was on it. A lot of classical guitar, weird, random low key psychedelic stuff, and soothing folky rock. The only song I remember for sure was on it was Van Morrison "Into the Mystic."

I get what you mean about having a really broad range of musical tastes, but I find that making playlists helps me meet my mood's needs even more accurately -- in a single mix I might have hip hop, classical, punk, etc, all represented but each song suits the mood just right.

Re: Mixtape Thread

^ Speaking of eclectic musical styles, years ago (when Napster was still a thing) my hobby was to collect and catalog songs about New York City. Some really great songs, too, which was awesome. But they were ALL OVER the musical landscape (jazz, pop, rap, punk, hip hop, country, r&b, rock, etc.). Which was, itself, an awesome experience. I really ought to dig up that list of songs ...

You should check out my Aussie Rock! thread on TV&M. That's got nearly every song you'd want to make an Aussie music mixtape.

Re: Mixtape Thread

Hah, I was poking around that old 4shared account (linked in the OP) and ran across this Trek mix which I don't recollect making.



Basically just a totally ridiculous grab bag of Star Trek stuff with some miscellaneous classical and a bunch of Sun Ra remixes thrown in. I must have been on acid. Nevertheless... do believe I'll give it a listen.

Re: Mixtape Thread

The greatest mix tape I ever made was a collection of all the instrumentals from The Cure. I had all kinds of stuff on there, including All Cats are Grey played on violin by, not sure who, one of the band members. There were instrumentals from B sides and out of print stuff and some rare version of Carnage Visors. It was about an hour long? I traded some guy a Cure bootleg (Opera Bastille, how do I remember this?!) CD to burn it for me.

Re: Mixtape Thread

I used to make my own off the radio back in the 80s, but now I only have one "mix", and that's partly because it was provided as a single monster mp3. I'll give you the list, see if you can guess what it's from:

Sigue Sigue Sputnik - Love Missle F-111
Kaye/Montenegro - (Theme from) I Dream of Jeanie
Yello - Oh Yeah
The Flowerpot of Men - Beat City
Big Audio Dynamite - BAD
John Williams - (Theme from) Star Wars
The Dream Academy - Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want
Wayne Newton - Danke Shoen
The Beatles - Twist and Shout
Zapp - Radio People
Blue Room - I'm Afraid
General Public - Taking the Day Off
The Dream Academy - The Edge of Forever
The (English) Beat - March of the Swivelheads

(I left a couple off since they're specific to the reference.)
