Roots track of the week - Collaborative playlist, join in!

Hi all,

I've just started a Spotify collaborative playlist called 'Roots track of week'. The idea is that once a week all the Spotify users on here add one track that they've been particularly enjoying of broadly rootsy/folky/wordly relevance. That way we get to share our favourites and discover new music. I've kicked it off with the Caroline Chocolate Drops' 'Hit 'Em Up Style'.

(I nicked the idea from this one http://open.spotify.com/user/erikstronk ... MoBtkIwbdJ, which is for all types of music, if you want to see how it works in practice - just order it by Date Added.)

Thanks all, we're up to five contributors now with a pretty varied set. I'm hoping this could take off and be a good forum for song/tune swappage for some time. The only thing I would add from the above is to only add a track even seven days or more(mentioning no names :) ), as that should give it a bit of variety and longevity.

Now, the rest of you, please come along and join in!

gosh, Googoosh track, nice one Leon

btw am I alone in finding Rob's 'La Comparsa' unavailable as it's apparently added as a 'local file' ?

Ha! I wondered about that. Apologies, I'll look for something else to add.

Thanks all for joining in. The good news is that we've had 15 subscribers and a great playlist ranging from rootsy Americana to Iranian pop, English folk and even some strange jazz!

The bad news is that no one has yet added their second track. :( So if the last track you added was seven days or more ago, just add your latest favourite to the same playlist. Let's keep this rolling...

(I may have confused matters by re-adding my first choice of the Caroline Chocolate Drops, I did this because someone had accidentally deleted it from the list and I thought re-adding an old one and adding a new one would be even more confusing!)

Great idea but I still can't figure out how this done in Spotify? Did a google and found out how. Just a right click away!! Added my second track I heard in a Turkish film a http://www.market-thefilm.com/index2.html

Bump! This is ticking along nicely still, with between two and seven tracks being added a week - thanks to those joining in, it's given me some great listening.
