5000 Up

If you read Monday's post you would have seen that we were two short of featuring 5000 different tracks on here (we are a fair way over the 5000 total tracks if you count repeats). It is taken the best part of 13 years to reach that milestone, and to mark the occasion I want to enlist your help. 

Stick a number between 1 and 5000 in the comments and when there are enough of them I'll dig out the tracks that match the numbers on my spreadsheet and include them in a sort of 'Best of the first 5000' post.  

In the meantime, to see us over the line we have enlisted the help of Ry Cooder and Panadda Chayapark (or Ry 'n Thai as they were billed back when they used to tour together). 

And to kick off the next 5000 in fine style we have our old friends The Incredible String Band with what is probably my favourite track from what is definitely one of my all time favourite albums, "5000 Spirits Or The Layers Of An Onion". 

"5000 Country Music Songs" - Ry Cooder

"5000 Nut" - Panadda Chayapark

"First Girl I Loved" - The Incredible String Band


  1. 3764 please
    Congratulations on an epic achievement.

    1. Thanks. Coming from a man whose commitment to the cause I could never hope to match that is praise indeed

  2. although it can hardly be a Best Of if we don't know what we're voting for

  3. you've been doing this for 13 years. I am impressed.

  4. Congratulations! That's a pretty impressive achievement. Dedication that deep deserves something more than four numbers but, in lieu of a knighthood, here are mine - 1313. Cheers.
