Derhay is a pillar of this community and in light of recent posts and discussion, I felt like making him a mix. This is all old stuff, some you will know, hopefully one or two you won't.

Track 1 from Baal
Length: 00:04:00
Year: 0000
Track Description:
Straight in with the artist who is one of the main musical glue that would unite Derhay and myself. This is a fascinating obscurity. 'Baal' was an early Brecht play, and Bowie played the title part in a BBC Tv production. He also provided some music for Brecht's translated lyrics which I got on a 12 inch vinyl EP back in the day. It is unusual, but like much of DB's work, totally spellbinding.

Track 5 from For Your Pleasure
Length: 00:05:29
Year: 1973
Track Description:
When I first listened to DB, there were a select band of other artists who I kind of all lumped together in the musical trivia part of my brain. (In other words, all of it!) Roxy were right up there. The early few albums, with and without Brian Eno, were bloody great in what was a pretty bleak time for popular music. The Beatles had split, Hendrix and many more were dead, but Bowie, Roxy Music and a few others seemed to offer hope for the music obsessed teen. (Me!)

Track 5 from Oh Mercy
Length: 00:04:33
Year: 0000
Track Description:
One of those songs where a cover version (Joan Osborne in this case) is possibly better known than the Dylan original, but I like everything about this recording, from the atmospheric guitars to Bob's Bob like delivery. Bobtastic!

Track 3 from In The Studio
Length: 00:04:50
Year: 0000
Track Description:
The Specials were probably my favorite band of the Two-Tone/Ska revival of the late 70s/early 80s. I know that Derhay has been known to listen to a bit of the old ska now and then, so I am pretty sure he will enjoy this from Jerry Dammers post Specials project. The thing Jerry likes best about you is your girlfriend!

Track Description:
British Reggae had a bad name back in the day, (mostly but not all the fault of UB40) but Steel Pulse were always the real thing. This is an impassioned well crafted song, as always with them.

Track 5 from Sweet Warrior
Length: 00:05:16
Year: 2007
Track Description:
Britain's best kept musical secret. Thompson has been making folky rocky music about things that mean something for almost as long as I have been in long pants. This is from his latest album, released a couple of months ago, and is one of the sharpest songs about 'the war' that I have heard. The exact opposite of Toby Keith's tub thumping, yet he remains sympathetic to the soldier on the ground. A stunning track.

Prefab Sprout finally arrive at MTC. Beautifully crafted Britpop. This was a hit single in the UK, but it has an unworldly quality you don't usually find in chart music of the time.

Track 2 from The Best Of Siouxsie & The Banshees (Disc 2)
Length: 00:07:37
Year: 0000
Track Description:
An ex girlfriend of mine once had a dream that she and Siouxsie Sioux shared a bath together. I never had such dreams, the odd fantasy maybe. I do know that I love the feel of this, Budgies drumming (I think that is him) and as ever, Siousxie's deceptively languid vocal!

Track 14 from Beard Of Stars
Length: 00:05:34
Year: 0000
Track Description:
Marc Bolan's outfit Before the name was shortened to T.Rex and the setup expanded from a duo/trio to a full band. A lot of the Tyrannosaurus Rex stuff was acoustic and very hippy dippy, the only common factor with the later trash pop of T.Rex being the nonsense lyrics and Bolan's voice. This track however, is different, with Bolan providing a loud guitar track that seems to fall in between being swamp rock and a John Lee Hooker boogie. Weird and a little wonderful!

TEAM 97 -- Third Place
Long before being knocked up with Eddie Murphy's illegitimate child, Scary Spice was on top of the world. Now, she's nothing but washed up. It's kind of sad, really. Just by scoring third place in this contest, you've got infinitely more street cred than Scary. Congrats!

I have at least heard or read about everyone here, except Richard Thompson. I don't know all (most) of the songs, so I have some research to do. Thanks for the kind words. Does this mean that you will add me as a friend at last.fm? "Baal" is news to me. Track eight is a personal favorite of mine, but I edited it down to a snack size of 3:16. Surprise, full marks!
