Objects in the Mirror iMixes
This is for those people who weren’t included on the distribution list for Objects in the Mirror, my 2006 year-end compilation. How do you know whether you’re on the list? If I told you in person or via e-mail that you were, then you are, and your copy should be on the way if not already playing in your stereo. If I’ve told you nothing, well, you can probably guess what that means.
I’ve set up two iMixes at the iTunes Store which, respectively, contain the tracks from disc one and disc two of the compilation. At the very least, the rest of you can get a taste of what some of my closest friends have heard. You can sample the tracks and buy all of them directly from iTunes (except for the Patricia Barber track, which is an album-only sale) and, I presume, from the Zune Marketplace (if you roll that way). A more limited selection is available from eMusic and Napster. The best possible option, though, is to get whatever albums you think you’ll dig from your local independent record store since, at least in theory, artists receive more royalties from disc sales.
By the way, even if you are one of the lucky recipients of the compilation, visit the iTunes store anyway and assign rankings to the two discs. Sometimes a little validation goes a long way…
