Anyway, the idea evolved a little, and soon a scoring system was introduced. Contributions were kept secret, and contributors had to guess what the songs were, and who had put them on. A simple ranking system for the tracks was then introduced, and contributors had to select their three favourite tracks and their least favourite.
The wide range in characters involved and hence the wide selection of musical tastes produced some very interesting compilations, and it was often a challenge to make them into some form of coherent whole. It was a great way of being introduced to new music, and I discovered several firm favourites I might never have come across otherwise.
