The 2015 mix is here!

Well, it’s later than usual, but it’s finally done.

The 2015 realish mix is now available! You can get it:

Couple notes:

  • FLAC files are uncompressed sound files, which means the sound quality is much higher than MP3s. Most music players can play them. They take up more space on your hard drive though.
  • Side two in Apple Music is missing the last song, “Helpless.” Apparently it’s not available.
  • As I say every year, it’s better to download the files from me, as I tweak and edit them in various ways. It won’t be quite the same experience on Spotify or whatever.

I know there are still a few die-hards out there who like having the mix on CD. I’m going to make some CDs, I promise, but it hasn’t happened yet. Check back in a week or two.

Happy 2016!

  • Tracy Idell Hamilton

    hi David, happy new year! My daughter, who is basically growing up on your mixes, asked this weekend whether we’d gotten our 2015 CD yet, and I realized I hadn’t checked in. So glad you still make a few CDs, we listen the old fashioned way in the car. Please add us to your list! Nola and Tracy, 106 Castillo Ave., San Antonio, TX 78210. Mil gracias!

  • Tony Thesing

    Hi David, if you are still doing the CD’s, please add me to the dying breed list. Like Tracy’s daughter, my sons are growing up on your mixes on CDs in the car. Tony Thesing. 15 Stagecoach Road. Cold Spring, NY 10516.
    Thank you so much!!
