Resequencing The Complete Jack Johnson

7 posts in this topic

One of the hardest things for me about the Complete Jack Johnson box set is the repetition of tracks on each disc. I don't know what the rationale for sequencing the set that way was, but I feel it takes away from the listener's enjoyment by having to hear the same track played over and over again on the same disc, So my question is this: Have you had any luck resequencing the tracks and, if so, would you be so kind as to share your revisionism of this box set with us? I'm not the best when it comes to making mix tapes (tapes, heh), but I would appreciate any help you could offer. Thanks in advance.

Are you talking about re-sequencing the tracks.

You know that many of the tracks are the original jams that the final album was assembled from, right?

And also that the final mixes are included on disk 5.

Yeah, that's what I meant, not remixing.

I've had good luck listening to the whole set for about a week straight and then just remembering the stuff I liked, as it occurred to me. I'll probably need a "booster shot" at some point, but I'll worry about that when the time comes.

I'm with Jim, spent a good chunk of time with it, then maybe I'll go back some time. If you want a resequencing or remix of the the best of the set, I'd suggest the final version of Jack Johnson is your best bet, because that's what it is supposed to be. To me not a set I'd play through more than a couple of times, though I do really like it.

Given there are multiple cuts of many of the tracks, I once compiled a CD consisting of one take of each of those tracks. Who knows if they were the "best" example of each track, but it made for fun listening.
