Around 1997 I put this together on a cassette. It degraded over the years, with multiple plays. I then sampled the cassette into a file on my iPod. Now, I'm reconstructing it entirely in the digital realm, one side at a time, with slightly better edits, and an altered opening.
At the time, my philosophy for this mix was to provide adequate break time between the songs so that I could recover emotionally from the exhausting experience of singing along to them.
I've played this in the car many times alone, and, sometimes, with lovely people nearby. It's special to me.
