Much appreciated...

Volume 1 has become a regular in my music rotation as I wander through life. The mix is at times joyous and at times haunting but always beautiful.

I look forward to this incredibly generous gift of Volume 2.

I salute you!
This is so good. So, so good. So, so, so good. You get the idea.


p.s. -- So, so, so, so good.
Just curious:
how does Simon identify the music rights owners - composers and authors - of all these songs?
How are these music rights owners eventually going to receive their copyright royalties?
it's a mixtape, one doesn't need to attain rights to put together a mixtape. there are no royalties if a mixtape is not being made available for sale....
incredible - thanks a lot! listened it on the train yesterday and was about to cry in some moments for it´s intensity and try to find some of these tunes as original, well will be difficult though - jochen
holy mother of africa, yes, this is almost too good!
