Dark Was The Night - Or the art of gathering an impressive list of artists for a compilation

In case anybody missed it (I just found out!!- oops), check out the list of songs included in the latest edition of the Red Hot compilation released a week ago here. Impressive: from Andrew Bird to Blonde Redhead, from Cat Power to My morning Jacket, all kinds of styles by the elite of the "indie/alternative" scene today. Bound to be a few tracks you'll want to listen to. The ones I've looked up are previously unreleased covers.
An example: Feist and Ben Gibbard's cover of "Train song" here. And because of this great site, Stereogum, I found out about the original by Vashti Bunyan. Agreed, quite gorgeous:

Definitely worth checking out.
