Just bought this cd, and it's great. fantastic song selection - some I'm familiar with, some are quite new to me, giving me a good chance to explore some new artists. only thing to note is that one track is labeled incorrectly - track 12 on disc 2 is actually a song called Freak Off by Orchestra Harlow. it was fluke I caught this - the lyrics didn't match the title of the song, and I recognized the song from the opening of one of Mark Lamarr's episodes of God's Jukebox, so I listened to that opening, got the correct name and artist from there, and double checked it on youtube. I assume all the other tracks are correct lol! Speaking of Mark Lamarr, his playlist at the end of the 2nd cd is absolutely top notch.
