Meeting No.4 – 5 4 3 2 1

When Bob Dylan was asked “What are your records about?” at a press conference he replied “Some are about 3 minutes and some are about 4”. Inspired by this our challenge was to find 5 tracks that were 1 minute, 2 minutes, 3, 4 and 5 minutes long.

Most struggled for 1 minute tracks (except for Bob: The Residents Commercial LP has 40 tracks all 1 min long) but there was an embarrassment of riches for 3 minutes, so many so that often the choice was put to the vote Well I can play this or thisĀ and a few extras were fitted in
