I've had this thought for a while now and the thread on music you've never heard brought it to a head, my head actually. A car audio forum I used to frequent had a cdr that they mailed around between themselves, each person adding a song that was exceptional in some way- SQ high on the list. This exposed others to music they may never have heard.
So what do you all think of doing something similar here? The Amazon samples are pretty lacking for a potential $20.00 cd purchase and tell you nothing of the SQ of a cd. I would love to sample some of John K's favorite classical, or some obscure canadian known only by locals. High quality mp3's would allow more songs without eliminating the SQ aspect, as would using a dvdr if nesessary.
The risk, of course, is the riaa. If they found us we would all be killed, or even worse. Not to mention the liability to Axiom.

Just a thought...

We actually did this a couple years ago. I don't remember who started it, but the way we handled it was that someone volunteers to put together a cd and then asks for takers. The goal was that each taker would then send the person who made the cd a cd mix in return. It didn't quite work out that way, but it was still fun. I did a mix, and I got mixes from five other people. A lot of the new music I was exposed to I still listen to.

It was well worth it, and I'd do it again.

I ran into old messages about this, and it seemed like a fun idea. Most of my favorite music isn't that great for showcasing SQ, but it would still be fun to share.

Oddly, I JUST took SonicFox's mix out of my car this weekend while updating - see re-ripping/re-burning sun/heat damaged discs - my MP3 discs in the car.

The Leve11ers disc with the seatbelt-shaped scorch mark on it was a personal favourite.

Sounds like a fun idea. As somebody who stopped downloading illegally a few years ago, not that I really did a lot, I think that I could still participate, if all choose something obscure or unique that others might not normally be exposed to and included only one song each for every artist. In this way, it becomes more of a promotional demo that would encourage CD/DVD sales rather than inhibit.

Of course, one could easily argue against it as well but that's how I would approach it.

It would be a neat idea. I'd be game.

As someone that clearly misses the 'Summer of Love' of free music (Napster, 1999), I'd be in!

That was my line of thinking.

So what if each person puts say 5 decent mp3's from different artists and sends it down the road? I'll start it off.

Rather than mp3, how about wav or cda. At least flac if we go compressed.
