Thanks! The more personal these discs are the more they risk alienating the audience, but if we have to err on one side or another I'd rather hear music people are passionate about than listen to neutral gray inoffensive ear candy.

The bands (mostly) make a living playing for contra dances. Most of what they play is a bit more raucous (especially live) but we use waltzes as cool-down laps before breaks, and as performance pieces. The others are classical (Ahn Trio, Portland Cello Project, Takehiro Kunugi) or Celtic traditional bands (Lissa Lynne & Aryeh Frankfurter, Abby Newton & Natalie Haas), with one odd duck, Chris Cunningham (who doesn't play for dances but he and his family dance) for good measure.

STEAM is (mostly) from Kansas. I first heard them at a dance in Ashland, OR. They are pretty big for a dance band 5 pieces) but I love their sound.

Chris Cunningham is a local singer/songwriter/recording engineer. This is from his first solo album, written when he was courting his wife.

I had  never heard Elsie Gawler before being introduced to this solo effort, tho she has been part of a legendary family band forever. I like vocals in waltz music and I wish more bands would stretch those legs.

Wild Asparagus is a dance supergroup that performs with as many as 6 members. They are pretty expensive so they only play really big events, but they are so worth it. Early is by Greg Brown.

And yes, that's Fred & Ginger. I doubt I could keep my composure meeting Ginger Rogers long enough to ask her to dance, but I'm sure she'd make me look good.


excellent flow and this disc is very easy to take in and absorb
almost all of it was new to me, yet i just sponged it up
the sort of disc you could hand to anyone of any age and they would appreciate it
feels like a sweeping soundtrack to an epic movie or experience
great job m


edit: just solidifies my mcc relationship

I figured I just wasn't into that genre of music enough to recognize the names, but finding out that they're special enough in their own way to make this concept collection means a lot. Thanks again!

Guess it's time for the big reveal. Hope everybody's gotten theirs.


This was, in more ways than one, a pandemic project.
Firstly because there was no dancing, and that left a huge hole in my life. It also left a hole in both the lives and incomes of musicians.

I had started this project shortly after finishing my first collection of waltz music, which has become the one of my mixes I've given out the most copies of. So some of these tunes came into my life back when I could still sneak off for a three-day dance weekend and hear a new band. The collection grew slowly, a couple of tunes a year. Then cam covid.

Boy howdy did I jones for dancing, and all the bands and musicians I had danced to retreated to the studio or the podcast booth or Patreon to get some income and express themselves. So I bought a lot of music.

One of the biggest influences on my tastes and attention was Julie Vallimont, who was part of a duo we had hired for our local weekend and had to cancel on...twice. She started a podcast called Stars In the Rafters where she highlighted music and poetry from friends and colleagues in the dance world, and introduced me to a bunch of new artists. She is also one of a select few musicians who are really good at writing waltzes. She appears on (if I'm remembering right) four of these tracks, but her fingerprints are all over this effort.

Not many words. This is music with a purpose—moving dancers—but if you're in the right mood it works just to listen to. f you get up and dance, well...bonus.

I've had a disc I sent out to Scott that lost a song in the process.
I still try to check each disc I do because of that.

I forgot to mention how I liked your flow of songs. Just like a radio station that flows a song right into the next one.
I do have the option with I Tunes to adjust the spacing between songs. I think I'll shorten the spacing my next go round.

Interesting that this simulation of the two-sided LP experience starts with a Max Headroom digital stutter!

The Bill Nelson tune sort of set the mood for this disc. New artist to me.

Brian Eno was a lot more familiar. And Phil Manzanera too...where's Fripp? Was on alert for the rest of Roxy Music as I listened.

Didn't expect to like Lorde but I did. Expected to like Soul Coughing and did. Was a bit crunchier than the rest of the mix.

Brian Protheroe was new to me. Dug his lyrics and the Monty Python-esque outro.

I have loved Green Shirt from the first time I heard it, but the solo acoustic version seems drained of the cold menace I liked so much in the original. The additional last verse didn't make up for the missing drum and organ outro.

Now the Kevin Gilbert tune had some edge to it. Another new artist to me. Reminds me of James McMurtry a little.

Did not think there was a Stevie Wonder song I didn't know!

Not sure it's possible to reconcile the CD format with the stop-in-the-middle effect of LPs without resorting to two discs. Tom Petty tried it on his Full Moon Fever album, where he had a short interlude with him describing why there needed to be a pause in fairness to LP listeners with a parrot squawking in the background. Looking back on it from the modern era (when the mere physicality of a CD is quaint) it's adorable, but I'm not even sure later pressings of the CD included that. Gotta admire the attempt tho.

So it's my turn next. Discs are burnt, just need you to pm me your address and I'll let them loose next week.

Side A
* Nice little short intro from Mr. Nelson. Don't know him, like his sound though.
* The way my player software (Media Monkey) presented the CD was as Side 1, Side 2. So I didn't realize the Eno song wasn't a continuation of Photograph. He and Nelson should collaborate
* I have mixed thoughts on Todd's White Knight but do like this selection. Forgot that Joe Walsh was on it.
* EXCELLENT CHOICE of a deep track from Chicago circa 1972
Side B
* I really, really liked the Protheroe, right in my wheelhouse. I explored a little (can't do that in the truck!) and found Pinball which was familiar (RP maybe, an old RPMCC mix?) I now have him on my list of artist's to explore more of. Made my day :)
* I'm a prog rock fan and haven't had the pleasure of hearing Kevin Gilbert before. He's GOOD!
* Wish I had headphones for the Lyle Mays offering, lot of cool layers happening here.
* 801 looks like quite the Super Group. Do you have this on vinyl I'm wondering?

That’s the first song on the first album by Bill Nelson, who went on to be BeBop Deluxe. Recommended: Live in the Air Age
Check the youtube of that Chicago tune live at the ranch. The epitome of Chicago, IMHO. Everyone hits their respective marks beautifully.
I’m the guy who incessantly wanted Pinball on RP. Met Protheroe in London at few years ago after trading email with him for years. He and his writing partner Martin Duncan made some fantastic, creative, fun albums in the early 70s.
Kevin Gilbert is amazing. Check out “Thud” and read up on how Sheryl Crowe was his girl before she stood on his back and became famous. Or see if you can find the video of how he showed up at a Prog Rock convention and fronted a band playing all of The Lamb in front of that discerning crowd. Balls.
Lyle died recently, and it’s a damned shame. His work straddles prog and jazz. This is a potion of a longer tune from his first solo record. 
And 801 has a legendary live album (you hear my TNK submission sometimes on RP) and then this subtle studio album with all kinds of greatness on it. Easily one of my desert island discs.

Glad you liked!

Despite my lack of Hi-Fidelity options I was able to thoroughly enjoy this mix sans Headphones. First time playing a mix on a computer instead of in the truck in the 10 years or so I've been in the club, different experience for sure but a treat actually. At some point in the very near future my next truck won't have a CD player so I'll have to do some upgrades to make the most of my computer listening pleasure. Enough about THAT, onto the music.

Side A
* Nice little short intro from Mr. Nelson. Don't know him, like his sound though.
* The way my player software (Media Monkey) presented the CD was as Side 1, Side 2. So I didn't realize the Eno song wasn't a continuation of Photograph. He and Nelson should collaborate
* I have mixed thoughts on Todd's White Knight but do like this selection. Forgot that Joe Walsh was on it.
* EXCELLENT CHOICE of a deep track from Chicago circa 1972
Side B
* I really, really liked the Protheroe, right in my wheelhouse. I explored a little (can't do that in the truck!) and found Pinball which was familiar (RP maybe, an old RPMCC mix?) I now have him on my list of artist's to explore more of. Made my day :)
* I'm a prog rock fan and haven't had the pleasure of hearing Kevin Gilbert before. He's GOOD!
* Wish I had headphones for the Lyle Mays offering, lot of cool layers happening here.

Spectacular Debut to the club! Dare I say on a par with Can't Buy a Thrill? LOL we all wish. Look forward to your sophomore effort.
