Wow! You did a fantastic job. I consider myself in the know but you managed to produce an awesome compilation with several tracks I did not know or had overlooked/forgotten. Hardly a track I do not really like and definitely not one bad track among them. This is really rare even in the music blogger scene as most people like to show off rarities they grabbed instead of proving taste. (I know that's arrogant, but hey, you can't discuss taste, can you?) You should do more of these, man! I for one would appreciate them.

Thanks for the kind words, much appreciated! I try not to repeat any bands over these volumes, so it's pretty hard trying to keep the quality high. I have a shortlist of artists for volume 5 but that could be a good few weeks away before I finish the mix, as I do like to try and get the balance just right. Volumes 2 & 3 are also on this blog, or you can catch more of my mixes on mixcloud:
