5.0 out of 5 stars Lots to discover 10 May 2013
By Fenwith
Format:Audio CD
I love this selection - I'd only heard a few of the tracks before and will definitely be exploring more by the artists represented. This is my fourth LateNightTales CD and this could be my favourite.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much test card music 5 April 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The first B and S LateNightTales was a great thing. Mix of genres and some real revelations. This one sticks too closely to the 60s/70s test card music "exotica" that fey hipsters liked ten years ago. Pete Shelley, Pop Group, Cecile - good. Most of the rest - really?

3.0 out of 5 stars not the Belle & Sebastian I expected 29 April 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I must have been too excited to read what it said on the label !! Have all their own Cd's & thought this was a newby. One track only by B&S the rest by a motley collection of Jock bands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Caveat Emptor 16 April 2012
By J. Hill - Published on Amazon.com
To be clear: this is not a Belle & Sebastian album. The poor reviews seem to be based on that misconception. While that may be a disappointment to devoted fans, it is not a commentary on the quality of what this album actually is - a late night mix crafted by Stuart Murdoch and friends for Late Night Tales record label. The album joins previous collections notably curated by such groups as Air, Groove Armada, Trentemøller and (most recently) MGMT.

For those frustrated by the lack of a new B&S album, there is one track here that is performed by Belle & Sebastian - a cover of The Primitives' song "Crash" - the remainder are original recordings by other artists; all are interesting, pleasant down-tempo listening for the after-after party.

Got this after finding it on Spotify and so glad I did. Love the label and what they do. Its great to have a way to get inside the heads of the artists. Sounds so much better in lossless.
5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful & Eclectic 5 May 2014
By Donald E. Gilliland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love these "Late Night Tales" CDs, having bought 5 in the series already. The basic theme --- having an artist choose songs that they think are special or worthy or attention, or perhaps ones that influenced their own sound --- is a terrific idea, and shows the diversity of influences in the music of bands such as Belle and Sebastian.

Maybe this CD won't automatically appeal to all Belle and Sebastian fans, seeing as how they only have one track on here (a darn cool cover of the Primitives hit "Crash"), but I would think anyone who listens to that group would be open-minded enough to give this CD a listen and perhaps discover some appealing new songs. I sure did. That's another one of the cool things about this "Late Night Tales" series; the featured artist always chooses a few obscure tracks by bands that aren't well known, but are almost always great choices.

On this CD, some of those "new to my ears" selections that made a very favorable impression include "A Time for Us" by Joe Pass (great jazz guitarist but this track also has a female vocal), "Soul Vibrations" by Dorothy Ashby (cool jazz harpist), "Bird of Space" by Bonnie Dobson (nice folk tune), "Streets of Derry" by Trees (sounds a lot like Sandy Denny and Fairport Convention), and "Still Thinking of You" by Steve Parks (I could have sworn this was Paul Weller singing!). I also love the tracks by Tory Y Moi, the Lovin' Spoonful, Broadcast, and the Ethiopian jazz legend Mulatu Astatqe. Hey, it's all good!

As with the other CDs in this series, you get a booklet that has a short writeup on each track, telling why the band member who choose that song thought it was noteworthy. Spanning several decades of music (from the 1960s to the present decade) this compilation flows well and offers some truly excellent music. Give it a chance and prepare to be impressed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Throwing It in the Garbage... 15 April 2012
By Keith Zimmerman - Published on Amazon.com

More fool me. Thought this was a new Belle and Sebastian release. Instead it's a compilation of favorite tracks that I don't give a damn about. Poser nonsense. LateNightTales indeed. It's going straight into the garbage. What a rip.
