Help me make a CD

Yeah, I'm currently working on a mix as well. I'm trying to cover as much of the musical landscape as I can in 14 songs (approx.), and it's proving to be exceedingly difficult.

The "Free Form Funkafide Filth" track from the Carlos Santana / Buddy Miles album is possibly the sickest, longest, and angriest funk jam I've heard. Low Roller and I were at dave-O's place on Friday night, and he had the LP out. He told us about the track, and we had him put it on, causing us to spend the next 25 minutes or so (it's the whole side 2 of the LP) with our jaws on the floor.

On a lighter note, "Swag" by viperHouse (from the "Shed" CD) is a gas: it's an entire lesson in socioeconomics (hey, how many funk jams use the word "hegemony"?) encased in some seriously fun funk.

As of right now my mix looks something like this:

01- Flunk "I love music"

02- The Stone Roses "Fool's Gold"

03- Phish "Moma Dance"

04- Tuatara "In The Passing Lane"

05- Threat From Outer Space "Soul Patrollers"

06- Blind Melon "Toes Across The Floor"

07- Allman Brothers Band "Jessica"

08- Emerson, Lake, and Palmer "Hoedown"

09- Primal Scream "Autobahn 66"

10- Bran Van 3000 "Astounded"

11- Thievery Corporation "Emerald All"

12- New Order "Slow Jam"

13- A Tribe Called Quest "Excursions"

14- Drums and Tuba "Green Shirt"

15- Garcia & Grisman "Shady Grove"

16- The Doors "The Ghost Song"

17- Radiohead "Blowout (remix)"

It's slightly schitzophrenic to say the least, yet it represents my taste in music quite nicely. There were so many more bands I wanted to fit in here: Jimi, Dead, Cypress Hill, moe., Tea Party, Boards of Canada, Sublime, etc... This may become a 2 CD set.
