Okay, we might as well officially release this to the unwashed masses. Also, let's put this up to push Tommy off the front page for Rhu_Ru's sake.
Anyway, here are some things I said at the pre-release (which I've edited):
Some quick notes:
- We had a lot of submitters, and a lot of you chose longer songs. After that, there were a lot of other songs that should be on there, so the mix ran a little long.
- As such, for several reasons it just made more sense to split it into two parts. Each has a theme of sorts.
- Downloadable files are available (first link). I know at least in iTunes, if you use the "Song Info" option on each track, go to sorting, and select "Remember playback position", it makes it more manageable to skip around the longer tracks.
Have at it. 2020 is a weird year, and this is appropriately a weird mix. I like it though.
Sadly, I haven't gotten around to breaking it into songs as promised. HOWEVER, to ease consumption a bit, I had the idea to release it as a podcast. This way you can walk around with it but don't need to worry about getting it into your library (though that's still an option).
I'm going to try to get this on more platforms but here is where the Summer Mix is available for now:
