73:09 (min:sec) mixtape divided to 6 separate tracks as above

“People ask me all the time what kind of music I grew up listening to and who inspires music I make. This CD was originally going to be a mix of only the most important music that shaped me when I was young. I put together a list of sure shots that absolutely had to make it and ended up with three pages. I took out the things I learned about after high school, and the songs that were only there for nostalgia, and narrowed it down to about 200 james. I gave Bill the list and asked him to keep it simple. A lot of really important stuff had to get cut because there just wasn’t enough time. We’re not trying to impress you with our high tech beat-diggin’ or ridiculous mixes. These songs aren’t rare. But for people who came up in a different time or listened to other kinds of music than me, this is the shit that started me out and keeps me going.”
