Songs from Beneath the Spaghetti Tree Vol. 13



This volume wasn't scheduled to appear for another couple of days, but I've been left wondering if I should carry on and post all 50 volumes. Perhaps it's a bit too much of an indulgence for everyone? Maybe I should leave them as mixcloud mixes only, I'm not sure. Lack of any feedback plus the decline in page views since posting volume 2 has prompted these thoughts. Re-compiling all these volumes has been quite enjoyable for me, but maybe not so enjoyable for everyone else...

Songs from Beneath the Spaghetti Tree Vol. 11


 
This volume shouldn't really have gone under the Spaghetti Tree banner. The first few months of 2016 there were so many excellent albums being released I was somewhat impatient to wait until the end of the year and post as a "Best of", so decided to compile a best of 2016 (so far) as volume 11. Not as musically diverse as previous and later volumes, it does rather disrupt the theme of these compilations, and apart from Volume 14 where again I did a premature best of 2016, was never repeated.

One more thing to mention is that I have changed one track from this volume which features on mixcloud: After posting the mix I realised I'd included a Ty Segall song which was already on Volume 9, so for here I have swapped it for another track from the same album. This error prompted me to keep a record of all tracks on each volume, to avoid repeating a track in the future (which of course was an utter failure!), and has made recompiling these mixes a much easier task!
