Goodbye and Hello

As you can see, the name High Plains Drifter exists no more, replaced by the better-sounding, more appropriate Sound Compendium Home Library. Why? The latter simply sounds much cooler, while the former, for many, conjured the image of Clint Eastwood on a horse high above a blood-red painted western village. Not musical, and not the image I was aiming for.

The blog will be better than ever, more musical, and completely devoted to giving back the wealth of music that I've received over the years. The new theme kicks off with the spectacular share below.

Sound Compendium (SC 101)

In celebration of the blog's name change, but in keeping with the running Library and infectious beats theme, we present you with a fresh, home-sliced mix of Library recordings courtesy of the Sound Compendium Home Library. Not sure of the precise direction I'll be taking the Sound Compendium mixes long term, but you can expect a good 10-20 volumes of the current variety, updated about once a week.

I'm just starting to pick up on the basics of Photoshop. Hope you like the chunes and the artwork.

Here's a sample, an obscure Janko Nilovic tune which is unfortunate only in its rather scratchy recording quality. Alas, it's the only copy I can find.

Get the rest over at MF with the first ever installment, and sure to be collector's item. Link in comments and be sure to say hello while you're there.

As the summer temperatures rise, Mass Transit 3 drops the tempo. This volume's beats and infectious grooves accompany your afternoon transit experience.

Here be a sample of thy goods within:

There's more where that came from! Get down with Mass Transit 3: Music for Leisurely Transport.

The one track mix is above. Check the comments if you prefer the individual songs.
