It was fucking great. Listened to it on my trip from Tallahasee to Orlando, so I can't really remember which tracks were from the album, Bootleg series and other sources... but it all sounded fantastic together and an improvement on the original release.

I take these kinds of things way too seriously, ultimately, and writing up a list or lists becomes physically grueling. Ugh. I shudder at so much as the thought. Kudos to the lot of you.

Dude, I didn't think this would be too hard as it is only 10 from each decade.

Or just pick your fav decade!

It's been fun reading all your lists. Will post mine soon. Have to go thru my itunes by year. lol.

Thanks. I appreciate that. Out of all my album reimaginings, Mo' Mercy is definitely my favorite.

What's your R&H set look like?

Oh hell yes. Goodbye "Stand Up Comedy," "Crazy Tonight," and "White as Snow."

lazarus 10-28-2009 05:54 PM

White as Talcum stays, fool. It's in keeping with the album's original concept, and certainly not a concession to the mainstream.

LMP 10-28-2009 05:56 PM

It's "Come O Come Emmanuel," except boring as hell. Sure it may fit with the concept, but I'm not particularly fond of it.
