Yet another great Matt D mix!
You seem to be going for the AM radio hits on this tape. That's really cool!
I hope your recording from Lps or reel tape.
I didn't see a turntable in your set-up on your previous post.

OK, slight overstatement on my part. I do like some of the stuff that has come out in the past few years. But, far too many CDs that I've purchased have only gathered dust. What I like about music from the 70's (and earlier) is that time has at least partially separated the real music from what is just noise.
But even then, I think much of the really great music has been effectively forgotten. From the 70's, we don't hear much of the funk, blues, jazz, latin (and combinations within) that I think represented some of the decade's best music. I think classic rock receives its fair share of airplay, but sappy r&b ballads receives far too much. It seems that 80s music has been treated in a similar manner. The radio stations seem to equate 80s with easy listening, and leave us with horribly saccharin songs like "I Just Called to Say I Loathe You." The 80s were not my favorite decade for music, but there was definitely some good r&b, Brit New Wave and heavy metal (well, hvy metal is pushing the limit for me).
Anyway, I could go on, but I'm always impressed with someone who has the ability to compile their favorite songs and make their own collections.
