This album is where you can find all the newest and freshest tunes... April Fools!  Quite the opposite in fact - this mix throws together tracks that have been circulating longer than, well, most of us!  Jack and Anna may be older than one of the original songs on this list (see if you can find it!).  We're entering Spring - and hence - REINVENTION!  Let's take what we've got and mix it up - just like these artists have.  There's always something to work with and a these artist have captured, in very different ways, an essence of their origins.  Each track revisits something we've all heard many times before, and challenges us pull back the covers, shake out the winter, and tune into something new.
