A mellow mixtape made in the honor of a man I've never met but have only heard of through stories and occasional comments made by him and passed along. Del Cahill, this compilation bares your name due to a mythological awesomeness surrounding you. You're a friend of a friend and I look forward to meeting you.

This particular set of music is definitely different than usual in the sense that there isn't a heavy song amongst any of the tracks. The closest song to a real Rock song is the Foo Fighters track and even that's acoustic (and a damn fine song to boot). Also, there isn't much of a theme within these songs other than the use of acoustic guitar and it's a shorter collection than most of the ones posted. So, why post it? It's just a compilation of of very good songs that I think Mr. Cahill would enjoy. I don't know this for certain but I'm pretty certain he's not into Melvins (they're finally going to be on a month). So, Del Cahill, if you're out there, enjoy these songs because "in your honor, I would die tonight." Thanks to that last line, courtesy of Foo Fighters, you now have some Rock to enjoy.
