I've just made mine too. It's synthtastic!

It made my weekend when I found both my CDs had vanished from the box by Sunday night.

I'm looking forward to hearing the CD I picked up: a train themed compilation with the punning-Mazzy-Star title of Among My Swanwick.

I got something by the Hobbes Fanclub. I hope it's nice. I wonder who got mine...

i picked up the VERY LAST ONE in the box. I've yet to listen to it but it says "Happy Mondays'" 'Bummed" on it. I never bought that album. I wonder who got mine. No setlist, just a drawing of an old style train and a transluscent green CD cover.

I put one in which looks a lot like this :-

I wanted to just post the picture as an image, but damned if I can figure out how. The artwork is by Indiehorse and it's unsuprisingly fab.

I got one in return which I've not had the pleasure of listening to; no tracklisting which is always fun, the cover has what appears to be a desert island on the front and it's by @johnski_beat.

I'm listening to a typewriter-tracklisting compilation "by Vicki :)"

It's really good - it has Status Quo next to Sonic Youth. Respect! So far it's perfect music for a hot evening, and I haven't heard many of the songs from the second half so I'm looking forward to discovering some new things!

I hope someone nice gets my mix- it's got a red collaged cover and it's titled - "Is Jane here? Yes." Its a mix of indie pop and 60s kitsch, my favourite sort of mix!
I forgot what time we were supposed to go back to collect another mix, so didn't get one.

Wonder if anyone grabbed any of my three mixes. Two of them actually had picture covers! The third was a hurried affair with several long difficult songs to challenge the listener.

All went under the name Turntable Revolution.
It was easy, it was cheap, go and do it!

My mix was called "HIYA! SYNTH!" and was about half synthpop stuff and half longer, soundtracky synthstrumental stuff. I hope it made it's way to an appreciative listener! I never found out who got my mix last year.

I got one in a plain black sleeve and it's an Asda CD with MIX scrawled on it. Only heard the first song (Hefner) so far...

I got a rather nice mix in a gold envelope with a photo of a beach on the front - only listened to it once so far, but it sounds very nice. If anyone gets one with people of different races feeding a deer on the front....that's mine.

Clark went to all the effort of planning a play-list on the Friday, then discovered he had no blank cd's- woe:( May get him to put a link up to it or something

Hello everyone, this is my first post on the forum, hope you don't mind me joining in..

I got a lovely CD made by a guy called Edwin, with a little 12 page booklet with notes on why he chose the theme 'The Punks Are Writing Love Songs', and some little collages in it. It's brilliant.

Hope you like my CD Carys..

Ooh hello Leon. I still haven't had chance to listen to the CD, but I certainly like the look of it!

I still wonder who got mine... Russ did one too - his had a picture of a cat flap on it, I think.

I got one with a train drawn on it. No tracklist no author... I find it a bit irregular, but it has some great great songs.

Guess who got mine, I put my email to get in touch but nobody has shown up

Hi, we'll have a compilation CD swap at Indietracks again this year!

If you’d like to join in, please make a compilation CD and drop it in the box in the merchandise tent from Saturday afternoon onwards. Then, please return later and pick up a different CD by 5pm on Sunday.

Actually, I'm afraid this isn't going to happen anymore. Apologies to anyone who was hoping to take part.

Aww, that's a shame, how come? I had started doing a painting for mine. With actual paint!
