Thanks! I'll definitely be making more of these collections of my favorite standards, though I'm not sure which song is up next at the moment. My next mix is #200, so I believe that one will have a celebratory atmosphere.

I was pleased to find that Tony version while making this. The Terry Callier track is my absolute favorite (which is indeed, why it's last!). I love his whole "New Folk Sound of Terry Callier" record. Amazing versions of standards. And I would have put Odetta's version in this, but I found that Illinois choir one and I didn't want two acapella versions, and I was pretty sure no one outside of Illinois has ever heard that version.
