BBC Review

Over the years, the Late Night Tales series has given the chance to some of our best loved bands to show off their record collections. Artists as varied as Fatboy Slim, Novelle Vague, Sly and Robbie and Tommy Guerrero have all played DJ for the LNT compilations.

Groove Armada's newest Late Night Tales is the 20th release of the series. Having provided the series with its biggest seller to date Andy Cato and Tom Findlay have been invited back to publicly rifle through their records and memory banks with the March 2008 Tales. Like all the rest of the series, it features music that inspired them, moves them or are just some of their favourite tracks. Based on the longstanding idea of the mix tape personalised for friends and lovers, this offers a selection of some great tunes, resequenced and reedited to form a new mix to listen to in the privacy of your own room.

If you like the GA and '80s electronica, you probably already own most of the tracks on this CD (Depeche Mode, The Human League, Roxy Music, Electronic and The Cure) but it's a joy to hear some of the remixes, particularly of Elle Et Moi by Max Berlin and the superb reversioning of Gaz Numan's Are Friends Electric (exclusive to this CD and based on a live track by the boys). There's new as well as old, too. Old, such as Marvin Gaye and Tami Tyrell, Stevie Wonder, and new, Peter, Bjorn and John or Midlake. However the biggest surprise of the album is the almost credible Will Young track, Friday's Child.

This series has been a great one for opening eyes to obscure artists you've never heard before, reminding you of tracks you haven't heard in ages and providing you with a feeling of nostalgia for the days when friends made you tapes with your name scrawled all over them. In this case, by treading a more familiar line, the new LNT, doesn't exactly do any of those things. It might not keep you up all night, but it does offer that pleasant combination of funk and electro that you've come to associate with the Groovers. --Susie Goldring

Once again the pair that form Groove Armarda have delivered the goods in what can only be described as one of the best collections of post modern funk. That is given the very distinctive Groove sound....... the re-working of the Frank Sinatra classic, just brings you into the album before hitting you with classic after calssic... all in the style that the have very much made their own. All I can say is congratulations on creating an album that will very rarely leave the draw of my CD Player.

Be warned, as with all of their previous albums you won't know what to expect. It takes a couple of plays of the album at first, but once the initial honeymoon period is over you definitely won't want to put this album down! From soulful 70's to modern day chill out, this has it all.
Groove Armada have once again managed to combine all the qualities that make for a truly enjoyable mix of enspiring music. You'll be proud to have this one in your CD collection....

I got hold of 'Goodbye Country Hello Nightclub' and thought it was a bore, apart from the incredible 'Superstylin'. I dismissed Another late when I first heard it. But I dug it out again after a couple of months and I'm listening to it quite a lot. The songs are all very different but they mix smoothly. There are 18 tracks so theres bound to be some filler - but when its good its very good. tracks 5 thru 9 are good and I love the Al Green one.

I'm a massive fan of th late night tales series. Groove armada are the first artists to be invited back for second showing and they deliver the goods again. Very eclectic but a nice flowing mix. Excellent mix of Midlake's Roscoe and wonderful Groove Armada version of the Gary Numan classic Are friends Electric.

I'm a massive GA fan and i think my views on this record are somewhat hampered by this fact, because this really isn't GA's sound. Some parts are excellent and there's some excellent songs, 'Fly me to the moon' and 'Al Green, Truth N Time' were the stand out tracks for me but it really didn't hit the spot. I was also not impressed by the mixing expecting a much more free flowing album where here in parts its a little jumpy. If your looking for a compilation chill out album may i suggest 'Back to Mine' mixed by Faithless - a faultless album.

Groove Armada really have it all.... ok, their last album 'Goodbye Country Hello Nightclub' was a crashing disappointment after the blissed out gorgeousness of 'Northern Soul' and their breakthrough album, 'Vertigo', but they do seem the PERFECT band.
Whereas their foreign counterparts Air lost the plot and became convinced they were ELO (then worked with, ahem, Madonna), GA have remained resolutely cool... and this album confirms them as the coolest men in music.
Housed in the sort of sleeve design you could eat (bar the dodgy lettering - ouch), it's a classic album.
Highglights for me are the awesome Grace Jones track (she was THE highlight of this year's Purple in the Park...although she's not audible on this?!) and the fantastic Rae and Christian feat The Pharcyde's 'Let it go'.
Also worth mentioning is that on the end of the CD of this album there's a short story read by Sir Patrick Moore, which comes in 4 consecutive parts - what a FANTASTIC marketing idea.
Names we want to see on compilation duties for the next Another Late Night album? Goldfrapp and Royksopp....
ps...get the Zero 7 album in the Another Late Night series, too... awesome.

This is another fine collection of late night listening that can be enjoyed at any time of the day. If you know the Late Night Tales series already, then you won't be disappointed by this instalment. If you are new to the pleasure of rifling through someone else's record collection without any effort, then this is as good a place to start as any. The Groove Armade boys show their 80's roots and for those of us old enough to have worn pixie boots and eyeliner the first time around, it is a little piece of nostalgia (but not in the tacky 'Reflex' vein) Should you be a little younger, then this is a great introduction to some killer tunes. Enjoy the relative silence with your electric friends; it's the things that dreams are made of!

This is yet another great mix from the Groove Armada Clan. It has so many really enjoyable tracks that flow as effortlessy as ever as they blend into one another from one genre to another. The track selection has some absolute gems that you just don't have in your record colection but they clearly do and are not afraid to use them. I beleive this is the 20th in the series so a bit of a mile stone and definately the right choice to celebrate a fine series with. One of the best to date - you will struggle to find a better in the series and it will be tough to follow. Get yourself a copy and enjoy every last minute of it.
