I did myself a compilation CD to play in the car, I got about 300 tracks on it I think and the only qualifier was that they all had to be tracks which I'd given 5 star ratings to in iTunes...anyway I've been really enjoying the selction so thought I'd share a few of them, the only problem that I've noticed is that it's totally top heavy with reggae and soul tracks, this might be because I've got something like 38,000 tracks in itunes but only 400 are actually rated, and soul and reggae make up over 50%.  Anyway I might bang out a few of these in the next couple of hours / days / weeks.  Something for everyone hopefully.

Here's volume 3 of "Driving Music", once again, mainly Northern Soul and classic Jamaican stuff but also features two of the greatest Rock & Roll singles ever made, The Phantom's totally demented "Love Me" which is beyond description really, and the moody, Elvis soundalike from Jett Powers aka P.J. Proby.  I was going to cut the Stiff Little Fingers track as it is very long but a) that would have been cheating and b) it's easily the best punk/reggae crossover track out there.
