Something a little different - pick out 5 tracks you like that you think would go well together, or make a nice mix. Only qualification is, each track must be longer than 5 minutes.....

OK, here's mine.....

Sad Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands - Dylan
Kashmir - Led Zep
Mother Of Pearl - Roxy Music
Heard It Through The Grapevine - CCR
Knockin' On Your Back Door - Deep Purple

About 48 minutes there......which is at least 10 minutes more than you got on most albums, back in the 70's!

:D :D :D

The Fool - Quicksilver
Calvary - Quicksilver
Dark Star Live - Grateful Dead
When the Music's Over - The Doors
Just For Love - Quicksilver: EDIT (Sorry, I just found the run time for this song. Pt's 1 & 2 together are only 4:38.
Disqualifying it. I'll replace it with...)
The End - The Doors (It will bookend nicely with The Fool :wink: )

Sorry - not a big fan of that Iron Butterfly album side :wink:
Coulda probably used some Carlos though 8)

Ken

EDIT - My 2nd selection....

Of course any fan of Miles Davis' *itches Brew is familliar with Soft Machine's Third album.
Those four songs PLUS Davis' *itches Brew.

My original post was getting a bit cluttered, so....

The Fool - Quicksilver 12:07
Calvary - Quicksilver 13:31
Dark Star - The Dead 23:18
When the Music's Over - The Doors 11:00
The End - The Doors 11:40

= 71:36
or
1 Hour, 11 Min., 36 sec. of headphone only music :shock:

Well, seeing as Rush is so different from most of my other favorite bands, I'd basically have to do a Rush and a non-Rush. Anyway, the Rush one is pretty easy:

La Villa Strangiato - 9:34
2112 - 20:34
The Main Monkey Business - 6:01
Natural Science - 9:17
Secret Touch - 6:36

The non-Rush would take a lot more thought, so maybe I'll get back to ya on that one. =) Interesting thread here!

Ha, I was going to list all RUSH songs too. Well, some non-Rush faves:

George Thorogood - One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer - 8 minutes or so
Joe Satriani - Flying in a Blue Dream (Live) - 8+
Aztec Camera - We Could Send Letters - just under 6
Squeeze - Black Coffee In Bed - 6+
Waterboys - Sweet Thing - 7+

The going together bit is the hard bit here... Let's see if I can come up with something.

SRV - Riviera Paradise 9m
Jimi Hendrix - Voodoo Chile (the slow version, not the slight return version) 15m
Pink Floyd - Echoes. 22m. Was the entire B-side of Meddle
Phish - Mike's Song (live) 15m or so (I'm sure this one varies)
Grateful Dead - Truckin'. Album version clocks in just over 5m so it's game, but live versions go on and on... The one on Europe 72 is 15m
Total runtime - 76m. If you really want to go overboard, replace Mike's Song with Headphones Jam (also by Phish), and you're somewhere around 100m...

I wanted to throw Jesus of Suburbia on there, but I don't think it goes with the rest...

I thought about doing an all Floyd mix... it would go something like this:
Pink Floyd - Shine on You Crazy Diamond (1-5)
Pink Floyd - Echoes
Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb
Pink Floyd - Interstellar Overdrive
Pink Floyd - Shine on You Crazy Diamond (6-9)
Hmmm... I may have to set that up as a playlist on my ipod... :)

Rahul, I like your mix, I think that would work pretty well. Stairway would make a decent bridge from the manic Green Day opening to the more mellow CSNY and Queen closers...
