I have a basket of standard MDs by my door that I pick from for my MZ-S1:

Steve Kimock Band (various live shows, I think I have 3 plus a DVD that I copied via optical to MD 12-31-03)

Derek Trucks Band studio mix

Allman Brothers Band studio mix

Widespread Panic studio mix

U2 studio mix

80's Metal mix: Iron Maiden, Dokken, Sabbath, Scorpions, Def Leppard (this one is for the gym, not the walks in the morning) tongue.gif

Umphrey's McGee 12-04-04 (live show I recorded)

At least three Derek Trucks Band shows I recorded

Jerry Garcia Band Live mix

moe. studio mix

Rush studio mix

That's about all I can remember right now... I really dig being able to grab a different MD for the day depending on where I'm going and what I plan to do there...

Since I don't have an MD, I guess this will be What's In a Group of Sectors on Cori's iPod Mini's Hard Drive. laugh.gif

Heaviest listening recently has been Ueto Aya's debut album "AYAUETO," Portishead's "Dummy," Aikawa Nanase's "purana," and APC's stellar "the thirteenth step."

You won't find Andy without his Ugly META playing any of hide's three albums. YUKI oft features on this rotation. I don't even have portable audio these days, so I'm *gasp* playing the actual CDs! Whoa!

Some other variants are RoBoTs (yes, it's spelt like that) and X.

A little bit of Jeff Buckley isn't bad to listen to and.

Curiously JPOP. Go to japan for three weeks and look what happens, my music taste turns completely more asian than my girlfriend's.

listening to Kind of Blue - Miles Davis on prerecorded MD  cool.gif

That's an awesome album. I've recorded it to SP and Hi-SP for use in my MD player and my ATRAC3Plus CD player. If you haven't heard Sketches of Spain yet, I highly recommend it as well.

At this moment I've got Time Out by the Dave Brubeck Quartet playing now.

So what's in your MD?

At the moment it's the compilation "Chicago Soul".

user posted image.

The title of this CD is somewhat misleading as some songs belong to jazz and blues but to hear less-known songs from the Chess label is very pleasing. - I'll fill up this MD with songs from some other great Chess/Argo/Cadet compilations ("The Heating System, "Off The Wall", "Action Line", "Free Soul" and "Inside Out").

1gb hi md

1rst and most important: conception records presents: walkan rotation mixed by j-rocc, recorded in hi-sp from the original tape, a friend of mine once bought on a class trip in berlin (he copied it immedeately after buying, never actually listened to the original tape to avoid quality loss) the best hip hop mixtape i know so far, very addictive !

i googled a tracklist 4 u:

1. Somethin' Funky for Your Walkman (Intro) - J.ROCC

2. World Premiere - Arcee

3. No Introduction/No Introdeezy - Jake One & Kutfather

4. Beat #1 (Interlude) - Conmen

5. Earth, Wind & Fire [Remix] - DJ Ace

6. Watch Your Words - Samson & Swift

7. Contribution (Interlude) - Carl Johnson

8. Any Last Words? - 3-D

9. My Position -

10. Beat #2 (Interlude) - Conmen

11. Essay on Pseudo-Ism - Arcee

12. Thoughts I Generate - Kutfather

13. Better Days - 3rd Degree

14. Living to Die - Diamond Mercenaries

15. Neva Scared - Kutfather

2: vienna scientists IV, five years of solid grooves. label compilation. dubby to housy chill-sound, but much more forward than K&D sessions.

3: roots manuva awfully deep

4: rawkus soundbombing II and III

5: superrappin´ - flipsides

6: thirstin howl III - skillitary

7: invisibl scratch picklz - the shiggar fragger show !

i consider making this one to my "compilations and mixtapes disk" removing the albums.

  • 2 weeks later...

now starting to use minidisc to listen to music from cd as the computer has lost its sound and too lazy to go to the cd player to change the discs

as well as tons of sound recordings of public transport, strictly no car sounds except if its used in the war against car culture and the urban blight it causes, and also sound recording with the neighbors, homemade sounds like rain on the tin treehouse roof, the pet gecko squeaking, christmas light transformers buzzing away in some weird musical tunes, the homemade lego space buggy driving, billycarts roaring down the street and too many more to mention
