The Forgotten Mix Tapes


Back from the grave
So instead of just posting up a list of songs for others to check-out, I figured I would make you people a mix tape. Just like the ones we made back in the 80's on busted ass cassette's.

Soooooo grab a few of your favorites and zip em up so we can enjoy them.
Since this is in the "Other Music" forum, you can't put any Smiths or Moz on your mix. As for mine, I tried to make it a mix of new & older stuff, but also picked tracks that were obscure or things that the normal Joe will have never listened to but at the same time that I felt were good enough to be included on a mix. Let me know what you think, and I look forward to seeing what you all post up.

Great idea for a thread Boy Racer. I used to make mix tapes all the time but not since I got an mp3 player. And mix CD's aren't the same!

I think it can be hard to make a great mix tape. Should it flow or should it be a total mix of styles genres etc. In the end, it goes down to the tracks selected. I'll post something shortly. Hopefully a few other members will too, it coulb be a great insight into everyones tastes!

Glad you liked it.

As for setting up your mix.... I think the content is more important than placement, though i fondly remember sitting around for hours planning song placement for that mix tape that with any bit of luck would end up playing up front in the auto as I would be in the back. hehehehehehe

I did not do placement on mine that i posted, mostly because unless I went back and numbered the tracks into position it wasn't gonna happen (I'm lazy like that). So just go with something you think would be cool enough to make the cut.

As for that song "Greater Omaha" ... best one on that disc. hehehehehe

P.S. For everyone else, should you find something on my mix that your interested in getting full copies of, just ask, and I will get you squared away.

Great idea guys I used to work reg nights and often made mix CD (mp3) to play the full length of shift just to annoy the other two guys I worked with HA HA I will gett one together and post it ASAP.


It's all good
'Tis a good idea. Particularly enjoyed the PIL one. I'll bung one up tomorrow. Really excited about a gadget I'm getting, that will widen my collection. I saw a music centre advertised yesterday that doesn't require a computer, but you put vinyl album on the turntable, and it converts it directly to MP3 for loading on your player or memory card, no computer required. I'm off to delve in the loft to get all that melodic hardcore out now (Leatherface, Drive, Snuff....)

I really think mixtapes show us what frame of mind the maker is/was in when they were made. I have made numerous for work (see above) and I can listen back and think wow I must have been P***** off at that time or WOW thats a happy sounding bunch of tunes so see if you can decied what mood I am in listening to these tracks HA HA HA HA...............................:D


Trouble Loves me
Just a small point would it be wise to try and make the mixtapes so they fit on a cd....... ie 80mins


Back from the grave

Working a second one for you guys now.

This is turning out well thus far with just the 3 of us up to this point. There is some stuff on those that I have not heard before, and/or haven't gotten around to checking out. Which in reality was the purpose of starting the thread...... to see what others are listening to that I may or may not be missing out on.

Have another for ya shortly.

I've often thought that when looking back at past mixes: "Ooh, I must have been fun to be around when I made THAT tape...."

Looking forward to your mix Grahma, especially Rhythm is a Dancer! \m/ :)

Note: There should be a 'house' emoticon with white gloves and a whistle

Cheers BR "another fine mix youve got me into" will download the 80's mix as soon as it allows me !!!!!!!!!!!!! I was hoping to make another mixtape to post today but the lure of a cold pint on a warm Easter Sunday has beaten me so off to the pub soon. Have a great weekend and I will get something posted ASAP (drunk or not ha ha)
