Any of them do it for me, so I'd just go for whatever you can get your hands on, or whichever is cheapest at the time.

My friend Pete Knipe has always been the most technically advanced person I know, and whenever we go round to his place for a meal, a seamless sequence of music plays in the background. It used to be carefully organised cassettes, then CD-Rs, and now the songs are drawn at random from his hard disc.

On Friday, he limited the selection to the entire series of my World albums, over 250 tracks from World 2000 to Sound of the World (2007).

Apart from the embarrassment of not always recognising what the tracks were, even more disconcerting was that almost all the segues worked perfectly.

After all the agonising time spent worrying about which track should follow which, here was a random selector doing it just as well, maybe better, across an eight-year span.



PS: thanks, Angela, delicious as always

C hristian, tell you what. I have all of them dating back to 2002, so I'll burn you copies and give them to you for free. Let's meet at the College Park Ikea sometime.

Kidding, Charlie!

Seriously, they are all obviously good but I'm partial to the 2003 edition. It was the first one I bought (I later on found the 2002 version at Borders) and it stands out the most for me.

2006 is a close second. When I listen to Charlie's show (or other ones) and I hear a song I like I write it down in hopes that it eventually makes its way onto iTunes or I decide to buy the album. Anyway, when the 2006 edition came out it turned out that it had 7 or 8 songs that I had on my list but had never bought, and that was a pleasant surprise.

One other thing C hristian - when times were tight but I still needed new music I had a $2 fund - I had an agreement with myself that whenever I took out $50 from the ATM I would set $2 for music. Eventually it added up, and my wife didn't care that much. [/i]
