A Chill Out Mix That's OK To Like - Download

The chill out mix has acquired a bit of a bad rap over the last ten years or so. Which is a pity because the idea is sound - the idea of a CD or playlist you can come home to after a hard day at work and unwind in the bathtub to is the ultimate idea of therapy to me. Unfortunately the people who put these mixes together generally are at the polar opposite end of the musical taste spectrum to me - I'm not saying that some people won't find Morcheeba relaxing, just that they wind me up something chronic.
So I got sick of waiting for someone to make the ideal chill out mix for me, and got stuck in and made one myself.
And here it is :

1. Heaven & Earth - Feel The Spirit available on the compilation Feel The Spirit

2. Blitzen Trapper - Heaven & Earth from the album Destroyer of the Void

3. Francoise Hardy - Mer from the album La Question

4. Fairport Convention - Fotheringay from the album What We Did On Our Holidays

5. John Cale - Andalucia from the album Paris 1919

6. Red House Painters - Cruiser from the album Old Ramon

7. Neil Young - Philadelphia from the Philadelphia Soundtrack

8. Candidate - Falling Leaves from the album Under The Skylon

9. Air - Afternoon Sister from the Virgin Suicides Soundtrack

10. Broadcast and Focus Group - What I Saw from the album Investigates Witch Cults of the Radio Age

11. Mogwai - Dial : Revenge from the album Rock Action

12. Doves - Willow's Song available on the deluxe edition of The Places Between - The Best of Doves

13. Wilco - Venus Stop The Train is an outtake from Yankee Hotel Foxtrot and is not commercially available

14. Nick Drake - Which Will from the album Pink Moon

15. Nick Cave & The Dirty Three - Time Jesum Transeuntum Et Non Riverentum from the B-Sides & Rarities Box Set

16. David Crosby - Orleans from the album If I Could Only Remember My Name

17. Neko Case - Magpie To The Morning from the album Middle Cyclone

18. Arab Strap - Is Your Love In Vain. This track is unavailable commercially

19. Pride - Proud Sorrow from the David Axelrod compilation Warner / Reprise Recordings
