Hi! I'm a big fan of the mixtape (though I tend to prefer CDs or online mixes, but, well, I'm one of those guys who considers anything in a car that plays music a "tapedeck" so, y'know...). I've posted some stuff to Art of the Mix
because it's pretty fun to see what other folks' mixes are, but I'm also one of the folks who works on the Mixtape Wiki
over at Your Subculture Soundtrack
(well, I work on the rest of it, too). Anyway, though, I just like that idea, since it's cool to have people who are the type who write notes about songs they choose for their mixtapes to be able to have the song-notes all cross-referenced. Sorta like, if I put a song on a mixtape of mine, and you put the same one on one of yours, someone else can see what each of us have to say about that song -- getting different points of view on it.
So, one of the things we've been doing is putting in a bunch of albums so folks can review those, too. But, what that does is on the wanted pages list, brings up a bunch of songs. So, to get those off, what I did was compile a mix of those songs. But to make it interesting, I went with non-standard versions where I could; live versions, demos, remixes, etc. (See, I'm actually getting to the point!) It's downloadable here (100MB Zip)
, and the notes are here

It's not as good as some mixes I've done, just because of the varying natures of these songs, but, if you're a fan of the acts, it might be kind of interesting. And, well, I'll have better mixes later! So, anyway, though, hope you dig it!
