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.
