A Partial List of Songs From Not In Mexico

A note for those who surfed in from a search engine link: I probably know the info that you're interested in. Email me (link at bottom).

The beauty of Not In Mexico was in the special guests. Guests brought with them a unique style that made each show totally new. Not only were the discussions totally different each time, but so was the music. Each guest was asked to bring some of their own music to the show. This created a blend of different styles. Of course, Damon always had some music of his own to play (which gave some consistency to the shows) but the rich diversity is what made it really special.

With that said, there is no record of any of the music brought in by special guests. However, each week (at least for the second semester of the show) Damon made a CD of songs to play. Not all of the songs were played the night they were made for. Songs were played from any CD that had already been created, as well as from various other CDs that were brought in. However, the following list should give you some idea of the music that was heard for half of each show.
