December's Mix was made for Nancy - hope you find something you like on it! Thanks for all of your awesome hospitality during the holidays. This is a mix of some old and new songs that I put together as a Christmas gift for her. For the observant folks out there, I skipped posting November's mix. It was made, just not posted, and consisted of a focus on world music. I might post the cover and track listing later this week while I take a break from the list of fun.

were is the CASH song taken from?

It's on American V: A Hundred Highways. This is the only song I have from that album at the moment - it is really cool. Random sidenote Moby, on his Play disk used a sampling from the original tune that Cash covers here. The Moby tune is really cool as well.

I can AllPeers American V if you want. Let me know. Do you have a Chris Smithers album, or just the one track? I'm new to him but love his acoustic blues guitar.

I failed both November and December for mixes. I still plan on picking it up, but there just wasn't much music listening to or finding going on over the past couple of months.

I did not pick up that cd...
I listened to some of it and...well it sounds like he was on his last leggs...which he was...
I think they should have left well enough alone and let his recording just be...putting this out after his passing just seems wrong and gready...and I am a huge Johnny Cash fan...always was, since I was a kid...

luke: I only have this one smither's song. It is a pretty funny song as well as quite good. I can see what you are saying about his guitar. No need to AP the Cash disk - thanks for offering though - I may pick up another track or two from iTunes as the month goes on.

SE: I haven;t heard anything else from this disk yet but this song is worth picking up. When you get your copy of this mix be sure to check it out.

SINEDDIE said...

fair enough...
I should make you a mix sometime soon....
