A few comments on your "Undeniable 70s," just to provide some contrast.

I think if I made a list of what I was *actually* listening to, as opposed to what I like and respect in retrospect, it would be pretty different.

I was buying every punk/post-punk single I could lay my hands in Mpls./St. Paul in the late 70s, so it's very interesting to see what's on your list looking backwards:

-- The Slits. I read all about them, but couldn't acquire the singles.

-- People who had been in the UK brought back Delta 5, but I never saw it in my import stores.

-- The Fall singles everyone seemed to be obsessed with stateside were "Totally Wired" and "Rowche Rumble."

-- At first I was ho-hum about Wire, having only heard "dot dash." Then I got the first album on a whim, and flipped. Looking back, the 3rd album is the masterpiece.

-- Looking backwards now on the Buzzcocks, I am increasing drawn to their last singles -- "Are Everything," "Why She's a Girl from the Chainstore," etc. When I saw them in London on their last tour before the reunion, they could barely play those songs, they were so intricate.

I didn't set the limit of actually listening to stuff at the time to include it, although Discs 1 and 3 are absolutely fair representations of that. Disc 2 was an attempt to put together a greatest hits of punk thing; I obviously missed some stuff by doing multiple tracks for others: Sham 69, Stranglers, Undertones, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Johnny Moped, The Nipple Erectors for starters.

I also had some issues w/iTunes over producing multiple copies of the playlist, so I had to take down "(White Man) In Hammersmith Palais" and "Harmony in My Head" which were replaced with "Career Opportunities" + "Cheat" and "boredom" respectively.

Disc 1 accurately reflects my 3 great passions of the period: guitar rawk (Southern or Otherwise), classic soul, and pure power pop.

Disc 3 is a homage to my time in Boston (9/81-7/85), York (8/85-6/86) and Stanford (8/86-8/96).

BTW, the Delta 5 track was a free download from Salon.com's Audiofile.
