Track By Track

Track By Track for recording artists, harkening back to the era when albums, or even CDs, framed our understanding of their work.

The idea is to pick the best first track from an artist, then the second and third, etc. The end result wouldn't be the best CD from that artist, but an interesting combination of bests by song position on CD (or album). You get the idea. Examples are posted below.
