Alternate "CD" Exchange (Screwtape's Idea)

In the spirit of the musical exchange, you pick 3-5 artists that you feel others should know. You upload a CD length (80 minutes) playlist representing those artists. You listen to each playlist and see what you like. Hopefully you discover a new artist or rekindle a love of an old one.

I have a couple people interested in this already so we should go with this.
Okay, let's get this rolling. This is the free/no-mail version.

I'd be in, I don't have a lot of time to put great effort into flow or anything, but I could upload about 80 minutes worth.

I don't think flow is needed. But I'd say to stick between 3-5 artists, like Screwtape said.

It doesn't have to flow or be anything other than an introduction to artists you think others should know.

By the way, great idea Screwtape. I'm all up for simplicity and free.

By the way, feel free to explain why you choose the artists and the different songs.

But it's not required. Also, I think we should be at liberty to include more than 80 minutes. For instance, don't struggle to chop out songs because it's 86 minutes or something. This is not a competition, so there are no real rules. I think 80 minutes should be a guidling for a minimum. For instance, I really want to introduce people to the many faces of Starflyer 59. However, they have 11 albums. So I'm thinking of doing a full 80 minutes just on them.

Yeah it isn't required.

I want to stay with the 80 minutes so you have the best of an artist come out. I don't want people to overdose on an artist. It is meant to be a small introduction. I for one don't want to hours of new music that is just one or two artists I might not like. So keep it to 80 minutes.

The only reason I would do that is that they have had 3 very, very distinct, different sounds over the past 15 years. It's kind of like if one band sounded like My Bloody Valentine, and then psychadelia, and then guitar-based new wave.

Let's keep it to 80 minutes. Like I said in the superthread, you can give them more later if they are interested in what they hear.

Imagine you're introducing U2 to someone. That's what it'll be like for me to introduce Starflyer 59 to someone.
