    does anyone remember these little mixed tapes. I remember them being very popular they are kind of similar to the NOW cds but my sister had a really cool one in the 90's I wish I still had it.

    I remember the ads for them, the first few volumes were alright, I think it was volume one or two that had Tod Rundgren's Bang the Drum, a great track. Later volumes got too much into bad techno.

    The 90's had a lot of good comps and comps series, starting in the early 90's with Wayne and Garth the Basement Tapes (I've got that one,) Atlantic Records releasing several boxed sets (Rock Music at Atlantic, several R&B and Blues collections, Led Zeppelin Boxed Set vols 1 and 2 and the 3 cd special edition [2 cds of music and an interview and radio station liner disc with a documentary including rare songs] called Remasters which was meant to be a promo item but wound up being sold in stores too and CSNY boxed set and Yes - Yesyears) and later the the Frosh series (I used to have volume one, it was great.) My sister had a few volumes of Sun Jams which had some good stuff on the first few volumes. Later in the decade to commemorate an aniversary of the Junos (Canadian version of the Grammies), the 20th I think there was a 4 cd boxed set called Oh What a Feeling which was decent enough. The first few volumes of Much Music's Big Shiny Tunes were good, volumes 5 and on I think are awful.

    I think I have a CD or two somewhere of these...I remember them having Who Let The Dogs Out? and We Will Rock You on them.
    These aren't my rules. Come to think of it, I don't have any rules.

    Love JockJams. My best friend and I recently downloaded a ton of them and danced around to them in my apartment. I had like, a two disc set of them back in the early 90s.

    I still have mine (one album). The music on it isn't too bad, but definitely not shit I'd choose to listen to. It's the one with "Cotton-Eyed Joe" and "The Chicken Dance" on it.
