    I have & love(ich) New Toy (oooeeeeeoooo).

    Don't think I've heard WOV's Factory.

    re: the other tracks...
    I've downloaded a bit from free music servers, but it's mostly filler from the '60's - '80's. I have a few Ponty & Roxy Music albums, but except for a pretty small stack of clearance-sale cassettes & CDs, I stopped buying music in the mid-1980's when vinyl died-out. If the Ponty & Roxy stuff is less than 15 yrs old, I probably haven't heard it, since all we get on the radio here is Country, Gospel, Classic Rock (which somehow translates to the morons at our local station to the same 30 or 40 standards played in heavy rotation ), and contemporary rock (basically, that station just popped-in a Creed CD a couple years ago & set it to 'repeat' and it's still running ).

    so, I'm ready - starved, really - for any horizon-expanding offerings you're willing to share.

    Red face "popped-in a Creed CD a couple years ago & set it to 'repeat'"

    -which reminds me, imo most useless music hardware: multi-carousel cd player w/random play- like i'd Ever let some machine decide my selection & sequence
    jlp's "no more doubts": ~'85; rm's "both ends burning": ~'75. so plz reconfirm you haven't heard either one, as eliminating either would help things fit good

    thanks to Amazon:
    jlp's "no more doubts" track is listed on his "The Gift of Time" album. No, I haven't heard that one.

    rm's "both ends burning" is on "Siren" which I have listened to, but as you noted, that would have been as long as 27 years ago ('75 release date confirmed by Amazon). But feel free to omit it at your discretion.

    the entire production is at your discretion!

    but I appreciate your asking for my input.

    np: rm's the thrill of it all.

    I thought you' be aware of Neptunes because they've been winning lots at the MOBO or some similar award. I am not really that ken on them as they have tended to drift over to the evil Empire of Great Britney and N'sink. They have worked with some more stellar bodies, though.

    I didn't mean to imply that you'd heard it and hated it, merely that you hadn't picked it up. Now I got the history, I see the reason why you didn't. I recall you telling me that you had read on the MAW forum (you gave me the addy of a year ago) that it wasn't going down as a remix very well and I thought that was why you didn't nab it.

    "you did have that C&J Macintosh rmx of janet"
    -pshaw, everyone knows the reason that one works is cuzza maw's presence, not cj's

    And what about Ms Jackson ? (I know, I know you only like the instru)

    "it's not in the same summer flow of MAW"
    -actually since house & hiphop (or, as i abbreviate it, hphp) got the strong beats that get the blood pumpin i pretty much listen to maw only in cold weather; but i'd be interested in your elaboration of what you mean

    The VTape you sent me 2 years ago had a very summery feel to it. So much so that now when I hear a track remix with that vibe, I automatically think of you and I wonder if he'd like it? Yes, Even Hubba Hubba Hubba reminds me of Summer - kind of an outdoorsy barbecue soirée on the Downs of Harmans Cross or Swanage perhaps.

    "the fashion-nurtured and fashion-evoking element of so many of your pickings"
    -oooo again, i'd love it if you'd to elaborate

    Publicity aitch oh. C'maaaaaawn Malcolm McClaren? The titles of your thredz? Your headfonez? Pip Glass? Whether you intend it or not, your track picks will always be evocative of style, even if they're Marilyn Manson 'tunes'....

    "not written in 'Nuyorica'"
    -since when have you become familiar w/nuyorican soul? been doin homework in seekrid, eh?

    About four or five years ago I caught a programme on them on MTV at my brothers. I don't know much about them other than the feeling their music has. I used the made-up term 'Nuyorica' to refer to the happy beats "summer flow of MAW"

    Please welcome Baal Jnr to the club now he really is a baaaaler

    Wink who you callin hairlip?

    "what about Ms Jackson ?"
    -yeah really, what aBout her indeed

    "I know you only like the instru"
    -i just prefer the instru; for every time i listen to the cjfxtc vocal i listen to the instru 20-30 times which reminds me of the feud between diana ross & the two chic honchos (bernard edwards & nile rodgers) when they wrote & produced her 1980 album (the one with "i'm coming out", "upside down" & "have fun again" ), with her whining that they made it sound too much like a chic album and not enough like a diana ross album. like that's a Bad thing??

    "they have tended to drift over to the evil Empire of Great Britney and N'sink"
    -aside from producers-on-retainer (like jimmy jam & terry lewis ), remixers tend to merely be unaffiliated hired guns, sharing little/no responsibility with the "empires of bad taste" which hire them for the overall mediocrities propogated thereby

    "VTape you sent me 2 years ago had a very summery feel to it"
    -much of it, sure; but "me & mrs. jones", "deep kiss" etc definitely belong in colder times :happy:

    "Even Hubba Hubba Hubba reminds me of Summer"
    -yeah, beat farmers play good while speedin down a hot dusty highway

    "even if they're Marilyn Manson 'tunes'"
    -which, despite what you may've mistakenly inferred, i doubt they ever will be
