The DCML CD is project we (the list) came up with in the summer of '99 [insert Bryan Adams guitar riff].

What happened was this: As a way of getting to know one another, each listee posted their "Desert Island Disks," which are the 10 CDs you would take with you if you were stranded on a desert island. We noticed there were some remarkable similarities, and a list of everyone's choices was compiled. From that I extracted our favorite artists. We voted on our favorite songs by those artists, and arrived at the tracklisting you see below.

I volunteered to coordinate the project as I am a college student with an excessive CD collection, a CD burner on my computer, and too much free time.

Basically, this is just a favor I'm doing for an increasingly closely-knit group of online friends. Anyone who'd like a CD is welcomed to one (or several), I only ask that you help me out with the cost of materials, as enumerated below.

More Info

The CD will come in a paper sleeve (jewel cases are expensive to buy, expensive to ship, and break easily), decorated by digital artwork done (or, more accurately, stolen ;-) by me. All tracks were copied direct from the original CD, with no compression in between. In other words, it should be of the highest quality. If anyone wants MP3s of the tracks made, let me know and we can work something out.
