dpd project [Full List of Discs] [FAQ] [Find A Song or Band] [Message Board]      

Welcome to DPD!

The DPD Project is a thematic mix-CD project created by music geeks and best friends Chris Diamond, Chris Prokop, and Michael Darpino.

Each CD in the project has a theme that ties the songs on it together. For every theme we each pick five songs that we feel best represent it. The collected fifteen songs are then mixed together in alternating order based on our last names. The songs that end up on DPD are meant to be the very best songs for their particular theme.

We write liner notes for each song to explain why we picked it for that theme. The project has grown into a sort of musical memoir over the years since music has been and still is such a huge part of our lives.

16 Shells from a Thirty-Ought-Six
by: Tom Waits
from: Swordfishtrombones

Picked By: diamond
For: DPD: 032 - Gun Rack

A street-tough lurking in the alleys of Hell's Kitchen; a shanty town inhabitant surviving the cold winds of New England; a gator hunter living on a house boat in the bayou; a deep sea fisherman who hasn't spent 24 hours on dry land for over 30 years; the hillbilly from the backwoods of Tennessee who has witnessed more horrors of the human condition than most see in a lifetime; the nomadic carny barker who invites folks to gather 'round and witness the latest in a long line of genetic mishaps, Tom waits is all of these and then some, rolled into one cool package.
