Format: Audio CD
There was much excitement surrounding this release, a benefit for war victims in Bosnia, as the best of Britain and elsewhere were asked to contribute a new recording, cut on the same day in recording studios throughout Europe.
Aside from the lazy Stone Roses, whose "Love Spreads" is barely more than a tape-recorded jam that does the song a disservice, the artists came up trumps. Highlights include Portishead, Blur, Radiohead and a wonderful return to form for Stereo MCs.
However, top of the pile, and worth the purchase price alone, is Sinead O Connor's version of Bobby Gentry's "Ode to Billy Joe". It is majestic.
Other notable cover versions are Suede's haunting "Shipbuilding", and Manic Street Preachers' "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head". They do it, and they do it with style.
Unsurprisingly voted Best Compilation by most music magazines in its year of release, this album is a must for fans of Brit Pop (the album also features Oasis, Boo Radleys and the dub-laden Massive Attack) and Beatles completists (Paul McCartney plays bass on Paul Weller's version of "Come Together").
Incidentally, the first-week British release of the recording was made all the more exciting as due to the hurried nature of the project, track listings could not be printed in time, so early purchasers had to guess who was playing what. Ah, those were the days.....

Bought this again recently & hasn't lost its allure. Variety - e.g. Portishead, Suede cover of Elvis costello, Chartalans & stereo MCs. Maybe warchild itself could restock it?

I wanted this as I only had a cassette tape. Loved it when it came out. Though now some of the songs feel a bit introspective and sad, it evokes memories for me

I bought this especially for Sinead O'Connor singing Ode to Billie Joe. It's one of the most haunting versions of the song I have ever heard. That said it's not the only great track on the album. It was actually cheaper to buy the album 'used' than to download 2 tracks so that's what I did.
