  1. really cool and moody, nice compilation!

  2. It definitely speaks much to the quality you can expect to find during the duration of a particular series when the second installment manages to improve so much upon the first.. And this one did, because there were even _more_ gems on it I'd never heard before(currently kind of loving "I think of you" more than I probably ought to, for example..), _and_ David Bowie involvement is of course going to make better the things that have It over the ones that Don't~("In the heat of the morning" was quite good too! and you've now made it possible for 60s Bowie to cut in front of others within the Line of Bowie Albums I've yet to listen to.. so I'm more wanting to get my hands on something he'd recorded in that decade as opposed to finishing up his 70s discography.. thanks for that ;) ) ..But you also put a Nico song on here.. which wasn't enough to sink the entire compilation, of course, but.. even for the sake of hearing these volumes in their entirety, I couldn't listen to it. I trust you'll understand though..! I just don't.. I don't have the correct chromosomes to appreciate Nico's.. ah.. "talents", I think. So it isn't my fault. Blame nature! ..I did not skip over the Tom Jones tracks as well though, so that's something, at least...! I did have to giggle a bit(because all sorts of stupid things strike me as being funny, you know) and genuinely marvel at the fact I was listening to songs of his outside of movie soundtracks and television shows where I don't really have a choice but to hear them.. I kept thinking "I am sitting here and willingly listening to Tom Jones. ..Heaven help me." during his first song. And then "I am sitting here and willingly listening to Tom Jones _again_...!" when he made a return appearance XD ..And I most likely will continue to willingly listen to Tom Jones on subsequent listens of this mix. What is to become of me..!

    ..All kidding aside though. Again, I genuinely enjoyed listening to this revisitation of 60s Pop as well :) So thank you for compiling and sharing, as always!
