5.0 out of 5 stars Gone, but not forgotten, 4 Mar. 2007
This review is from: Listen Again (Audio CD)
Those 5am weekends are not the same... OK, Mr. Da Bank is on in the graveyard slot after midnight on Sunday, but I just don't seem to be around to listen then.
Eclectic and intelligent as ever, here is a great great collection of stuff from the two laid back Blue Room luminaries, one CD from each. For those unfamiliar with The Blue Room, it was radio 1's eclectic laid back slot for the post-club audience in the wee small hours...expect the unexpected, but nothing too banging...everything from Folk to Dub via Balearic grooves ... and the odd anarchic solo artist. This CD is a typical slice of the show from the point of view of each presenter, with some really top notch early hours listening to tickle your ears.
Highlights? Skeewiff's bouncy Man of Constant Sorrow, Bowl Me Over by the superbly named Acid Casuals, Prince Fatty, Patrick and Eugene's very...erm ... groovy version of Simon & Garfunkel's Feeling groovy, Kitty Daisy & Lewis, Amadou & Miriam, Rainbow Family, King Creosote's lovely rendition of Nothing Compares To You [sic]... all these are real resonant and memorable tunes. Gogol Bordello's Start Wearing Purple is highly entertaining but starts to irritate after a few listens.
Five stars all the way then boys.... will you come back now please?
