Maybe the judges didn’t rate it because all of the songs are not on Spotify. Jonathon Brandmeier favorite (I can’t find link to corroborate with my memory of this, but…) New Age Girl by Dead Eye Dick is not on Spotify at all.
Another great tip from Mike for an entry into the Songs Not On Spotify series is The Grey Album. Not only did Danger Mouse only use samples from one album, but thematically matched the song to the sample. And some of the songs sound better than the original (sorry for that one, Rick).
If I remember correctly, Mike heard about this first, we immediately went to the record store and bought 3 copies of the promo (what was produced before the cease and desist was instated). We then opened one to listen to and create cdr copies of while keeping the other two sealed. I still hold hope that one day Uncle Mike will find our copies in his office basement.
I’m going to post the entire album as a YouTube playlist, because I can’t pick one (I think I’ve always listened to it straight through).
