The concept is fairly simple. This mix is a collection of rock and blues standards or underground classics, either original or reinterpreted (or re-reinterpreted). It is a study in context and some of these songs can take on completely new lives with the most subtle of tweaks. And of course, there are some tweaks in the mix that are anything but.

I book ended it with "Your Southern Can Is Mine"-- the original "Blind" Willie Mctell version and The White Stripes cover. Mctell's being one of the oldest recorded blues songs in existence, and the White Stripes being, of course, a representation of modern rock music.

There are multiple versions of songs throughout, but examples of two versions aren't always necessary. For example: when you hear Kaleidoscope's version of "Minnie the Moocher", you don't really need to hear the Cab Calloway version to know it's a cover. The same can be said for The Who's version of "Hall of the Mountain King". Also, some songs, such as "Fortune Teller" and "Leaving Here", were done by so many artists, and were all so akin to one another, that two examples would be redundant.

At the heart of the mix is the build up to Led Zeppelin's reinterpretations of "The Hunter" (Albert King) and "You Gonna Wreck My Life" (Howlin Wolf), which took form in the epic "How Many More Times". Both of the originals are featured on here, as well as the Blue Cheer version of "The Hunter", which helps for dramatic effect.

It may seem rather lengthy, but I actually had to whittle it down to 21, after coming up with over 50 songs I could have used.

If anybody would like a rapidshare link of it, let me know.
