Something's out there

I'm happy to tell you that another friend has contributed a mix for us. John and I know each other a long time. He tends to listen to things that are rhythmically challenging or, at least, funky, and I approve of that. In his words:

"This is the first of the Sonic Sculptures done just for CD and not
adapted from a cassette. This is about the third of fourth version of
this CD. Various earlier versions included tunes by Miles Davis, Soul
Coughing, David Byrne, Ray Anthony, Duane Eddy, Tom Waits, Laurie
Anderson, &  Sting. Next week it probably would have a few more
changes, but I decided to stop screwing with it and make it official.

The collection was first put together in the summer of 2001 around the
time I bought the 'Lounge-A-Palooza' and 'Nimrod' CDs which served as
the jumping off point. All the songs in this collection were assembled
in Roxio Jam with crossfades."

Hey Henry -- This site is terrific. I love it. Can I really download all these songs without getting a virus?

Hi Peter,
1) Get a Mac. 2) All of the downloadable files are hosted by my own site,, which is, in turn, hosted by a friend. I think the likelihood of you getting a virus from these files is close to nil. But, then again, I'm a Mac user and I don't know much about viruses or spyware. Happy hunting!!!
