Just listening to New Order's compilation they did for the Back to Mine series, has got me thinking what are the best artist compiled various artist cd's. This one will take some beating, look at the line up:

1. Big Eyed Beans From Venus - Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band
2. Higher Than the Sun - Primal Scream
3. he Rain - Missy Elliot (Supa Dupa Fly)
4. Venus in Furs - The Velvet Underground
5. M62 Song - Doves
6. In Every Dream Home a Heartache - Roxy Music
7. Was Dog a Doughnut? - Cat Stevens
8. Bassline - Mantronix
9. Cherry Red - The Groundhogs
10. Energy Flash - Joey Beltram
11. I Feel Love - Donna Summer (Patrick Cowley mix)
12. Mushroom - Can
13. The Dance - Rhythim is Rhythim
14. E=MC2 - Giorgio Vs Talla 2XLC

Other albums of this nature I've really liked are the chemical brothers mix cd 'the brothers gonna work it out', saint etiennes the trip and I really, really liked Liam Howlett of Prodigy fame's The Dirtchamber Sessions Vol. 1 from a few years back.

I know that a new series of cd's of influences came out this year (Morrissey, Ian Brown and Bob Geldof did them if memory serves) but I haven't heard them yet.

this looks great, I'll have to keep an eye out for it.


The Tricky under the influence wasnt bad, there were a couple of dodgy tracks by people he had signed but overall it was pretty good.

Looks good. Did you get the free CD that came with Mojo, compiled by Simenon and Mick Jones? Don't have the track listing to hand but one or two of these songs were on there, plus that bizarre House of the JuJu Queen.
