  1. A quite magnificent mix, and a great concept too.

  2. Looking forward to hearing this, CC and by coincidence I have been meaning to search out that Nevski track again that your blog introduced me to.


  3. Not spending much time on the blogs at the moment, but I couldn't resist dropping by to see what this is all about - and love it.

    I was so pleased to see your choice for iconic sleeve; I miss him.

  4. Cheers C
    Hope things are ok with you and you feel up to blogging again soon
    It was your wonderful posts that made that iconic sleeve immediately spring to mind

  5. Great selection, CC, very much looking forward to listen to this soon. In fact I am still waiting for Mark to put up my little contribution, alas I failed to send in a sleeve, bugger! Then again I'm sure he'll come up with something pretty neat!

  6. Looking forward to hearing your offering Dirk ( A for Adverts?)
    I suspect there are a few in the queue
    I didn't do a cover but it looks like Mark has a theme going on

  7. Disgracefully, I wasn't really aware of Cooking Up a Quiet Storm, but I am now and shall continue to follow with interest. Fabulous concept and an equally fabulous selection CC.
