So this is the very first CD-r because I don’t know whats happened to my tape deck and it seems I can’t fix it myself. I’m just moving on to my CD-r’s which I do call mixtapes too because they do or did that very same thing. I’m a little bit disappointed I didn’t get through all the tapes but I guess I can go back to them at some stage. Now most or some of these have at times end up in my car because it’s got a five disc player in it, play them until I’ve heard it too much and then put in another one or five. So listening to them not in car is a bit different now. Dates or at least months and years are written on the front of most of these. We start here today for my Thursday blog post in April 2005 because I can’t seem to find any earlier or with a date on them at least.

So that’s pretty much 80 min. of music or just under it because that’s what you can fit on these thingys, CD-r’s but I don’t think I’m telling you anything new at all. Mr. Cave in 2005 just released the three disc B-Sides & Rarities comp album and I picked three for it above. Frank Black or Black Francis is on three times with The Beatles cover with Pixies, his solo acoustic demo Pixies’ Break My Body and maybe not the greatest re-working of Pixies’ Where Is My Mind? both those two are from 2004 album called Frank Black Francis. After years of waiting for a Pixies reunion, it finally hit around this time too. I don’t know if I’m saying anything new to you now? Maybe he or them should be the photo for the post but I picked out the pic of Lee “Scratch” Perry before because of his two great tracks.
So who out there likes all these songs too or at least one track? What’s your fave song or songs for the above tunes? Or just wanna say something, anything?
