Completely avoiding your question, if this is how you enjoy listening to music you should move towards a hard drive jukebox type system with customized playlists.

I did it only for car(still ain't got no CD-player and use cassettes).
I have LHasa on one side and Jewish Odissey on the other side That mix of cultures and talented bands made me a great combination.
I also acquired a compilation CD from Crammed discs catalogue that realy opened up for me many new artists that I ought to research and listen to -- I put it on the cassette in order to listen to it more often in the car and my sporty old-fashioned compact cassette player(pocket CD-players nowdays break down too fast!).
Never tried to "brew" compilations since every album I have is precious for me as is with every song.
