Yup - have to agree with the first two reviews. Bought for me by my son for a birthday present, I suspect he may have just looked at the words "John Peel" on the sleeve without perhaps reading the notes as to what was contained therein. Perhaps I do him an injustice, but it was with some trepidation I put this on the car CD player this morning. Well it's just a gem from beginning to end - stuff you would never ever be exposed to in the normal course of life but all of it interesting, listenable, thought provoking and in some cass downright moving. From a guy impersonating an old Ford car (rather well it has to be said) through what is probably now known as rockabilly, teatime jazz, brass band, blues ... the list is endless. I had a great run to work and shall doubtless enjoy this cd for many more.
Absolutely unclassifiable and how you decide on a star rating I know not. I give it 5 for historical interest and the brass band track (can't remember the track number) but if you are a fan of some of JP's more punkish leanings - maybe think again.
