Maybe it is a nice idea for everone to post your personal selection of tracks for a 'Best of Vanessa-Mae' cd.

I propose to make a selection for a cd of your 16 favourite tracks and one favourite video track; more or less in line with the EMI cd that has been released now.

Of course, everybody is free to fill in the preferences (number of tracks or videos) as he or she chooses. But, let's limit it as can reasonable placed on one cd!

I'll post my selection later today.

Sixteen audio:
Toccata and Fugue in D minor
Contradanza
Red Hot
Classical Gas (Reggae Version)
'I'm a Doun for Lack O'Johnnie (A Little Scottish Fantasy)
Happy Valley: The 1997 Re-unification Overture
Summer Haze
Storm
I Feel Love
Embrasse Moi
Aurora
The Devil's Trill
White Bird Airscape Mix
Destiny
Night Flight
Art of War

I found it quite difficult to make a selection that adequately describes her career and also shows all characteristics of Vanessa-Mae as violinist and musician.

Here is my list of 15 tracks and two videos:

Art of War
Toccata and Fugue
A Poets Quest
Violin Fantasy on Puccuni's Turandot
Storm
Red Hot
Org. Four Seasons 'Winter prt2 Largo'
White Bird
Devil's Trill
Bach Street Prelude
Scottish Fantasy 4th movement finale
Destiny
I Feel Love
Bach Partito no 3 Preludio
Solace

video of 'Happy Valley'
video of 'I Am A Doun'
(my two favourite videos because of the nice settings and a gorgeously looking Vanessa-Mae)

1. Storm
2. Night Flight
3. The Original Four Seasons - Summer (1)
4. Destiny
5. Art Of War
6. Bach Street Prelude
7. Happy Valley
8. A Poet's Quest
9. Solace
10. Toccata and Fugue
11. Aurora
12. Red Hot
13. I'm A Doun
14 I Feel Love
15. Pasha
16. The Blessed Spirits
+
Happy Valley (video)
If there could be a second video, then definitely I'm A Doun
I think that these songs wont even fill on 74 min CD, but if there would be more space then the Butterfly Lovers Concerto really deserves it!

I dont think the selection was that bad, though I would have liked to see Red Hot on the album (though I believe Contradaza is popular at concerts). I would have liked to see less tracks from the Strom albums (its her best work, but it lifts 6 tracks from the album, which is far too much).

I would also have liked to see some more new material, or some unreleased material. Even the Art of War was taken off the album but I managed to get around that by buying the album in Europe :D
