I've always enjoyed stuff produced/presented/offered by Jools Holland. He himself is a gem! However, this particular collection of offerings is one of the best ever. I have really relished the combination of some of my favourite 'golden oldie' songs, but performed by some of the younger talent each in their own inimicable style without losing the essence of the original.
Paolo Nutini's "Lovin' Machine" had me dancing round the house; Paloma Faith's "Something's Got A Hold On Me" was rich and poignant and Rumer's "Accentuate the Positive ... " was a revelation and delight.
Thanks Jools. This CD really lifts my spirits and makes my whole house come alive. If I'm feeling a bit 'low' it gives me a bit of 'fizz', and even my four-year-old grandaughter loves this music. It's one of the few items in my music collection that the young adults in the family universally approve of.
