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.

Random DPD Pick:

Fire Engine (Live at CBGB's 1975)
by: Television
from: Double Exposure

Picked By: darpino
For: DPD: 060 - ELEMENTS: Fire

This sweet little bootleg comes from Television's residency at CBGB's in 1974/75 when one Brian Eno, a fellow fire-fighter, happened to come through and offer to produce their original demo tape after hearing them rip through this and other early greats.

This song was never officially released and the only copies that are in circulation are this live cut and the Eno demo. The live version blows the demo away.
