  1. Huge thanks to John in Scotland for this rip. I'll be posting a few of the cds I've been missing over the next few posts.

  2. Glad to finally get to check out this early set from Uncut and there are some interesting gems and revelations here. "The Girl From Ipanema" is a very famous song and although its a bit too laid back for my tastes, I do really like the smoky late night sax and Astrud has a sexy voice and the recording quality of the track is excellent.Some serious shoe-gazing from Blur doesn't inspire me much but the Overture is a more interesting piece of music. Dubstar is more poppy than their name suggests with this slightly above average track."Choose Life" will be familiar to all "Trainspotting" fans and I quite enjoy Ewan McGregor's speech over this techno freakout. I have heard better from Supergrass but the Herbie Hancock track is a bit of a revelation due to it being ripped off by Delite for their very groovy "Groove is in the Heart" back in the 90s. The Beach Boys I struggle with, although this is one of their better songs off the "Pet Sounds" album, an album that I feel is highly overrated.The Radiohead song is average but the Tom Robinson band song is a minor classic rocker. The Elliot Smith Track is standard Smith and is ok.

    1. I would have guessed the same but I've checked images from the movie and none match. Still an odd choice for a cover shot considering all the over movies being featured.

  3. Does anyone know which film is being referenced on the cover? A picture of a bloke in a tatty jumper is kind of random.

    1. I would guess from Trainspotting, what with the Ewan McGregor speech on this set.
