Great book & my inspiration for this idea.
I have to admit there's more than a hint of nostalgia to this. My friends and I always used to do this & there are so many bands I like now that I got to know through mix tapes. I still have quite a few of the tapes still. One of my favourites was one a friend made using only his mum's records. Lots of show tunes!
It's also nice if you do some sort of artwork for the cover (no pressure - you don't have to).
