Sounds Rad and MTX Open Voting on "Best of" Double LP
By: Dr. Frank
We’re putting together a Mr T Experience “best of” type compilation, and we’d like your help. What songs should be on it? Go over to Sounds Radical to vote for your choices — they’ve got a “ballot” that lists the entire discography with check-boxes by each track.
I’ve got some ideas on it, but narrowing the entire catalog down to a single (well, double) representative album is actually not such an easy task. We say “best of” because that’s the conventional term, but ideally what we want is an encapsulation of the broad sweep of the material, which, for good and ill, covers quite a lot of ground. Sort of like Hot Rocks, I guess. A “retrospective” if you will… or at least a trip down memory lane. (Unlike the actual Hot Rocks, it won’t be chronological. I want to sequence it as an album rather than just an archive, but there are lots of ways to approach that. Themed sides? Ascending, then descending, keys? Try to “tell a story”? Like I said, lots of ways.) Read more.
