>Oilheads of the world,
>During the recent past, we have seen a number of "Essential"
>compilations coming out with acts like Leonard Cohen, The Clash, Simon &
>Garfunkel and now Bruce Springsteen. Since these are releases from the
>Sony/Columbia label I've got the idea: let's make an "Essential Midnight
>Oil" album!
>I want to give you some rules for doing this. EACH Midnight Oil album
>should be represented with at least one song and AT MOST four songs (I
>hate compilations where there are six songs from one album and only one
>from another). It seems like at least the Clash and Springsteen
>collections are made this way. Concerning the two EP:s, let's say one
>song from each. It's up to you how you want to handle the live albums,
>so for example you can leave out an album track and include a live
>version of it instead, as long as there are only one version of each
>song (one possibility to actually include 5 songs from one album!).
>Personally I'd prefer no live tracks at all, but that's me... The
>"Essential" collection should consist of two discs, about 75 minutes of
>music on each. Let's list the songs in chronological order, because a)
>it is the easiest way, and b) the released "Essential" compilations do
>have the songs in chronological order - and also they are 2-cd sets.
>Oilheads as we are, we won't bother with which songs are "hits" or not -
>just choose the songs YOU think best represent the 25-year career of
>Midnight Oil. Although personally I can't think of excluding "Beds are
>burning", "Blue sky mine" and other obvious choices, but if you want to
>leave the "big ones" out, then leave them out! (Of course thoses songs
>would be included if there actually WERE an Essential release.)
>Of course I had in mind to give my own "Essential" compilation first.
