The original set started out in 1991 on the Teac 3340 as a way to mix some cuts from the Sire Records series, “Just Say Yes.” I believe there were seven in the “Just Say Yes” series, but the original set contained tracks only from the first four. I also added songs by artists who appeared on the series. For example, I included cuts from the Wild Swans’ “Bringing Home The Ashes” and The Charlatans UK’s “Some Friendly.” In 1992, when the INXS album, “Welcome To Wherever You Are,” came out, I was so excited about that album, that I reworked some of the music in the set to include cuts from that album. I also included cuts from one of my favorite albums of 1989, Bob Mould’s “Workbook.” Due to the editing restrictions of a linear-based analog reel to reel, I was never able to really rework the set to my satisfaction. Now, with Toast and Peak Pro, I was finally able to create a nice one-hour set using my favorite songs from the albums mentioned. I hope you enjoy it.
