The (Long Lost) Art of a Great Mixed Tape

Picking out the perfect songs… putting them all in order to tell a story… This is when we met… this is our first movie… our first kiss…  running out of room mid-way through a song and having to decide which one to cut and redo the mix…

Oh yes, this was a process.  An art for some.  A mild obsession for others!  A sub-standard mixed tape was not an option.  Perfection was a must.

I find it a little sad that future generations will never experience this.
