Double-post: I understand about cassettes and the car ... we only have cassette players in the car, so whenever we drive, we listen to cassettes. (Of course, half the time we listen to Old-Time Radio, another obsession of mine that is mostly irrelevant here.) And I've always made mix tapes for the car.

But Rhapsody makes a big difference here, because I can create a Rhapsody playlist, plug the laptop into the stereo, and record mix tapes from the playlist. The playlists are good, because I don't have to only play what I own, but rather what's available on Rhapsody (and since most car tapes are with Robin in mind, that's most everything, because she prefers oldies and they have lots of oldies on Rhapsody).

So I still use cassettes, but mostly for temporary mix tapes, not for "archival" material.

Meanwhile, here's the 45-minute side I just recorded for today's car trip with Robin:

"Doctor My Eyes" - Jackson Browne
"Dancing In The Street" - Martha Reeves & The Vandellas
"Once I Was" - Tim Buckley
"Into The Mystic" - Van Morrison
"You Can't Hurry Love" - The Supremes
"The Weight" - The Band
"Let It Grow" - Eric Clapton
"White Summer" - The Yardbirds
"Please Mr. Postman" - The Marvelettes
"Love Is All Around" - The Troggs
"Good Lovin'" - The Rascals
"Every Beat Of My Heart" - Gladys Knight & The Pips
"The Letter" - The Box Tops
"Soul And Inspiration" - The Righteous Brothers
