If I learned one lesson from my last harddrive crash, it was that it's pointless to stash a pile of mixes solely in iTunes playlists. Fuggers disappear without a trace. So from here on in I'm gonna try to post 'em as I compile 'em, which should explain why this covers mix follows so closely on the heels of the most recent faves mix.
I'm not promising this kind of frequency as the norm. There's no way I can realistically expect good intentions to compete in any way with my inherent laziness. Also, while I'm coming clean about expectations - and pic to the contrary - don't expect any disco on this one (or any one). Although please feel free to rollerskate to yer heart's content.
