It's crazy to think that this time capsule is from 50 plus years ago. Makes me feel old (and I'm probably the youngun in the group!). I've taken a trip in your time capsule twice now so I'm ready to take a look see on who was performing some of these lost (and not so lost) gems you have put in there.

* Coming back from a nice Vermont fall vacation the Supertramp song went down real easy and kept me in my good Vaca mood a few days longer
* I thought is was the SS Sorrow, like a ship. Pretty Things eh, don't know them much.
* I guessed Fairport Convention for track 8, Fotheringay pretty much the same band.
* First Gear has some good guitar player in their lineup, that guy shreds on this song
* Here I go Again was kinda of a sad song I thought
* Blackfoot Sue knows how the work that Beatles fade at the end of a song, don't know them but this one is pretty close to my favorite on this mix
* Lester Bangs - "Give me The Guess Who. They got the courage to be drunken buffoons, which makes them poetic"
* Dug the spacey guitar work on Evil Woman
* Speaking of Sad Songs, you can't get any sadder that being down to Seeds and Stems Again
* Status Quo - Really good straight forward rocking

* I'm familiar with the Spectres song, but this sounded different than I remember. But it's been a REAL long time since it's been in my ears so maybe it's just me.
* Digging the Flute on Love's Immortal Fire...you just don't hear good flute playing in rock anymore. Not like the old days anyway.
* Finally heard my FIRST Captain Beyond song (I see his album on the FB vinyl pages all the time). Good build up to it. Mikey Likes It!
* I could have swore Night Creatures was early Bowie, maybe even back when he was Davey Jones. Surprised!
* Never heard this version of Flying before...kind of like the Faces version better.
* One of These Days - LEGENDARY!
* This Budgie song is kind of all over the place
* KILLER closer with Chicago. They embody this time period in my opinion. Perfect selection to end a great mix!

Thanks for the trip back in time to your younger days. I wonder what else you have in your capsule. I'm picturing a Yo-Yo and a collection of MAD magazines

First I gotta say: mission accomplished. This set really hit the mark, and reveals some of what we were missing on the other sides of all those records.

It probably helps that between my first and second listens I acquired a new (much better) set of headphones. The first time thru was akin to listening back in the day, either a low-fi record changer turntable or tinny AM radio speakers, the second time with audiophile gear, and I can see what the fuss is about. I kinda get why a lot of this was overlooked at the time; it really needs detail to shine.

Very little of this was familiar, making me wonder what other gems are waiting in the mine tailings.

Let It All Hang Out................The Hombres

Hey, I know this one! Don't think I ever really listened before tho.

2.  Sunday Morning.....................Margo Guryan

Margo who? Between listenings this really grew on me.

4.  You're Dead........................Norma Tanega

Um, groovy I guess.

7.  SF Sorrow..........................The Pretty Things

Who are these guys and what is this song about? And is that Graham Nash on guitar? No? Damn, this is interesting.

8.  Too Much of Nothing................Fotheringay

This one really got my attention. At first I thought "Huh, The Band and Jefferson Airplane had a bastard child with Fairport Convention" so I looked the song up and damned if it wasn't written by Bob Dylan and that's Sandy Denny singing backup and why have I never heard this before?

11. Standing In the Road...............Blackfoot Sue

This sounds so...modern. Kinda. 1972, you say?

Where the hell do you shop for records?

13. In A Broken Dream..................Python Lee Jackson

Did Portishead score a time machine and cut an album with Rod Stewart? I guess I actually had heard this, but never really paid attention.

17. April, Spring, Summer & Wednesday........Status Quo

As famous as these guys were in England they never made much impression here. That's a shame, this is good 'n' crunchy.

And that's enough for one night, I'll try and hit the next disk tomorrow or I'll hit the wrong button again and wreck all this typing!

Yes! I also like the deeper cuts... always have.
And as miamizun mentioned.... this is one of my favorite discs from you.
And what Lazy said... So many familiar voices, and yet so many tunes new to me!
As far as the "obvious segues" and "eggs"... I'll leave that to others who brains work better than mine.
Sorry it took me so long to get this down in words. An annoying work load seems to get in the way.

Disc 1

1. "Let It All Hang Out" . I always liked this song. And like pretty much all of these cuts... it's something you rarely hear anymore.
3. "Easy Does It". Listening to this disc without the playlist was a challenge for me. Trying to guess "who is that?" I did guess this was Supertramp. But I've never heard this one before.
Always recognize Roger Hodgson's voice.

5. "She's Got the Time" Wow! I haven't heard this one in a long time. And even then it wasn't around very long. Thanks for the memory jogger.

7. "SF Sorrow". Thanks for stealing one of my songs for my upcoming Psychedelic Songs mix. 

8. "To Much of Nothing". A Dylan cover! Fairport Conventionary!

10. "Here I Go Again". I think I might have something to do with this one. I really like this one a lot. Just like a lot of your mix... Great Old Songs You Rarely Hear Anymore

11. "Standing In the Road" A familiar tune that I haven't heard in ages.

12. "Proper Stranger". Of course, I know this band. Not so much the song.

13. "In A Broken Dream". This song was almost a hit.

15. "Evil Woman". Dig them bongos!

16. "Seeds and Stems Again". Another bottom of the bag classic. Love the pedal steel. Nice tribute.

17. "April, Spring, Summer & Wednesday". This wasn't their hit for sure. Kinda sad and bluesy for me.

18. "House With No Door". Oh boy. Kinda dirgey for me.

19. "Dirty Sheets" 20. "TB Sheets" Well here's a connection. These songs wouldn't be considered Power Pop would they?

Will get to disc two review quickly... I hope.

I'll have another listen and try to get a more detailed reaction, but for now this is a fantastic exploration of deep cuts. 



just to piggy-back on this
your wayback machine really rocked it this time
these two discs are my favorite burns from you

I get it. It is totally ok.
Playlist files like m3u (other file-formats for playlists exist) will be recognized by most mp3-players, I think.

A playlist-file (like m3u) could be created upfront, and saved in the same folder, together with the other files. That way, no change of file-paths is involved. 
What is  not so easy for some, I guess involves the correct tagging of sound files. id3-tags contain infos like title, artist, album, track-no., album-cover, etc. 
If the files are tagged correctly, playlist files become somewhat obsolete, as long as one only plays one album at a time.

3. Go to https://wetransfer.com, and upload the zip-file there. Then, enter the email-addresses you want to share the zip-file with (* also, see below).
4. Click send.
That's all. - This way, only email-addresses need be shared among members (and they can be anonymized).

*) Wetransfer free data-limit is 2GB per file-upload. Unfortunately, the no. of recipients is limited to three persons per file-upload, unless one registers an account with them (then, the no. of recipients is limited to 10, unless one chooses to go pro).

Perhaps there is another service around that could also be used, which I didn't research.
 
The problem is that you are only sending the files and not creating the playlist with the correct order.  I know how to create playlist and save playlist file in winamp for instance what I use but when you send the directory and the recipient downloads to their computer the file path changes and when you initiate the playlist it will not play because the path the playlist was created on changes.  Therefore you are only sending songs and artwork which imo takes away a good bit of creativity enjoyment of creating physical media.  I don't really want to do that, for me it would take the joy out of it all.{#Sad}

The procedure to send mp3 and other files (like playlist, CD covers, etc) would be as follows:
1. Put all created files into a new, empty folder on your hard-drive.
2. Compress that complete folder to a zip-file.
3. Go to https://wetransfer.com, and upload the zip-file there. Then, enter the email-addresses you want to share the zip-file with (* also, see below).
4. Click send.

So how many folks might be willing to jump in if we could do it all digitally?

For me, I'm always tech challenged and like the current format. Especially getting to see the artwork.
HOWEVER, in the not too distant future (next vehicle purchase in the next year or 2) there won't be any CD players in my truck to utilize. Already I have a laptop without the ROM drive and purchased a remote unit. I don't see myself setting that up to listen, mostly to burn. And my girl is reasonable techy (compared to me she's like Steve Jobs LOL) and she can assist me in moving into the future. So I'm not opposed to transitioning. I'm sure there is a way to implement art work. Getting another member or 2 wouldn't be bad if the format is more conducive to that.

The club got started when computers still had CD-ROMs/burners and USB/aux inputs to stereos were rare. We've discussed going to an all-digital format but that precludes packaging, which is an aspect some of us really enjoy. We decided to keep it physical because the majority still enjoyed finding a surprise in the mail.

I also enjoy being able to share music by hand, or bringing it along as entertainment when carpooling to distant things. Which is definitely a thing here.

But all that was years ago and we haven't revisited it since. Back in the day we had dozens of participants and the physical nature meant breaking up into smaller groups to keep the cost reasonable. We had participants in Yurp (
still listen to those discs!) and I have ideas to make that work, but if it would draw more participants maybe it makes sense to take another look at digital formats.

So how many folks might be willing to jump in if we could do it all digitally?

I'd be willing to learn how to send it.
Can we still design a cover/ track listing and send it to?
I really do enjoy the work of the design element.
