By the Numbers

This was a revision of an old mix tape. CD-Rs don’t hold as much as C-90s, so four tracks were cut at the extremes; if you’re curious, they were “Saved by Zero” (the Fixx), “99 Luftballons” (Nena), “Three Thirty Three” (the Drifters) and “442 Glenwood Avenue” (the Pixies Three). I did my own graphics for this one; there’s a discussion of it here.

    By the numbers

    Michele’s been looking for songs with numbers in their titles. Two years ago I put together a CD-R, a foreshortened version (with some songs shuffled) of an earlier mix tape….
