minimix: 07 to the Max

At long last, here are my year-end mixes at year's beginning. I made two mixes of good 2007 stuff -- although, by no means the "best," trying to spread it around, to avoid the Wilcos, Arcade Fires, White Stripes etc and to not overlap too much with all the stuff I've given up over the course of the year (links below).

What I ended up with were two "discs" 100MB each, and I split them up *nominally* into a "loud" mix and a "quiet" mix, although not sure it worked out that well. After I spent all that time putting them together, I wasn't 100% satisfied, so I did a "shuffle" mix that was picked at random by iTunes and after a little weeding out of artists/tracks featured on the other two, I ended up, not surprisingly, with a mix that was much, much better than the two I spent all that effort on. Almost to the point where I'm embarrassed to show you what I did. Anyway, here are all three available for download.

Tomorrow I'll give you my "best tracks of 2007" list with individual links to each one.
