Yeah, but ya know, Randy...I used to arrange gigs like that. Break things up each set. But over the past three years I see that people like to have more homogenity (did he just say homo?). So, I went to a formula that had the first three of four sets start slow and build, then the forth starting with something that made them jump out of their chairs, then something slightly lighter, slow dance, and the last 6 hard foot stompers.

OK. It must be a French dancer thing. :wink:

On a serious note, that's a very interesting approach tp performing live and there's no doubt in my mind that you had paid attention to what happens on the dance floor as you played.

p.s. From recollection.... the last time we spoke I recall speaking with a homosapien. :wink: :P :D

Just remember the songwriter/arranger mantra... "Repetition and SURPRISE" :headbang:

First let me say that if Randy and Robbie didn't extend deadlines, I would have never made it on any of the Comp CD's...so thanks to them both.
For sequencing sets and CD's, here is sort of template of how I think:
Start each disc with a peppy accesible song...
End each CD with the song hardest to follow (stolen from the Beatles) and the onr that leaves 'em wanting more.
Never put two songs of the same groove together.
Try to space ballads with at least 2-3 upbeat numbers.
Listen for keys...once I get to theis point, I find I can juggle so tunes around so songs of similar keys sequence back to back.
Any songs that could segue?
That's at least how I do it...
Oh yeah...never put two of John or Pauls songs back to back, and make sure George's songs are spread out one per side!!

Please refer to John Cusack's "High Fidelity" for excellent tips on mixed tape creation.

Thanks for the tips!

A couple of songs are still on their way. I PM'd everyone of whom I was not sure about wether or not he/she would still submit and when. I hope this will become clear in the next 24 hours.

So far, 28 songs. Incredible songs. It fits on two disks, but when the last contributions arrive here I think I'm going to need a third disk. Several people sent me a CD with numerous songs (like MrSkygod, Bassoprofundo and Pianojam) so I will pick a couple more from those CD's to fill the third disk.

I will combine it with the DijonStock DVD. So it looks like there's going to be 4 discs in the package.

Drum is busy doing a lot for the artwork.

One contributor (MicE) already did submit but is repairing the mix with the help of another contributor (MrSkyGod).

I'm now listening a lot. 28 gems so far. I already know which song is going to be the very first of the playlist and which one is going to be the last.

Lots and lots of work, but great fun. I feel honoured.

Dear Dudes and Dudettes,

Somehow the webserver that contained the compilation CD info page, does not do its work properly. I tried to upload for an hour, but it won't work. That is, the uploading DOES work, but the server eats it or something.

So I replaced it. You can now find it here, and if you have the time, please take the opportunity to check. Thanks!

Robbie, I pm'd you for your home address.

But, I see where you have it listed I think on that other page where you mention postcards for your daughter.

Is that where I should send my CD and stuff?

regards, ute.

Guys,

After several attempts I can't get the server that held the compilation CD webpage to work. I remember putting up a link to another location, but I'll do it again here. I'll also put a link on the front page of the dijonstock site http://www.dijonstock.com.

Direct link to the page: http://www.dijonstock.com/aw16gcd.html

I just updated it.

Robbie
