    My car radio reads only audio CDs, no MP3 and no line in, so I have to use 80 min audio CDs. My current Opeth (heavy) selection CD is:

    - The Lotus Eater
    - The Night and The Silent Water (off Roundhouse tapes)
    - Deliverance
    - Ghost of Perdition
    - Heir Apparent
    - The Leper Affinity
    - The Grand Conjuration
    - Demon of the Fall (RH tapes).

    Had to edit some of the tracks to fit them in (cut all the pre and post chatter in the live songs, cut off the swelling intro and the piano outtro on Leper Affinity...) but it's nice. Though I think I'm skipping TGC too much, should have gone with Baying of the Hounds instead.

    Yeah, I know, but I had to do it, otherwise I had to remove Leper Affinity from the compilation and that's plain wrong.

    Unless you have time for, I don't know, one fucking song, and gee, how convenient, you only want to listen to, say, one fucking song. Go burn iPods with Steven Wilson.

    I would make several 80-minute CD's, including:

    Best of Growly Opeth 1 (Blackwater Park & Deliverance)

    01. The Leper Affinity (edited)
    02. Bleak (edited)
    03. The Drapery Falls
    04. Blackwater Park
    05. Deliverance
    06. Master's Apprentices
    07. By the Pain I See in Others (edited)

    Best of Growly Opeth 2 (Ghost Reveries & Watershed)

    01. Ghost of Perdition
    02. The Baying of the Hounds
    03. Beneath the Mire
    04. Harlequin Forest (edited, minus Reverie)
    05. The Grand Conjuration
    06. Heir Apparent
    07. The Lotus Eater (edited)
    08. Hessian Peel (edited)

    Best of Opeth's Top 40 Hits (Damnation & Other Stuff)

    01. Windowpane
    02. In My Time of Need
    03. Death Whispered a Lullaby
    04. Closure
    05. Hope Leaves
    06. To Rid the Disease
    07. Ending Credits
    08. Weakness
    09. Hours of Wealth
    10. A Fair Judgment (edited)
    11. Burden (edited)
    12. Porcelain Heart
    13. Hex Omega

    Orchid
    Morningrise
    Still Life

    This works for me, as I have a 6-disc CD player in my car.

    I was going to make a "Best of Old Opeth (Orchid & Morningrise)" compilation, but there's too many good tunes on those albums to fit onto one 80-minute CD. I also really really dig their older stuff.

    Also, I never really liked MAYH that much, so nothing made the cut. Nope, not even Demon. The "wall of sound" style of the album turns me off.

    However, if it's in the fall or winter and I really want to be in the "Opeth mood," I'll just listen to the full album (or "observation").

    ^^ No, thats not what I meant. He would put Porcelain Heart on his cd but not Credence, where I would do the opposite.

    Every compilation or concert done will lack of one or two best songs and will have two worst songs instead, IMO

    Credence is beautiful and Porcelain Heart is ok (but its video is superb), but To Bid You Farewell owns every mellow track! my opinion
