An elegantly programmed mix of trip-hop, vintage jazz, and contemporary female voices (Lori Carson, Sam Phillips, Portishead, and Cocteau Twins included). New tracks by Liz Phair ("Rocket Boy"), Hoover ("2 Wicky"), and Mazzy Star ("Rhymes of an Hour") are priorities. --Jeff Bateman

If nothing else moves you, the Cocteau Twins 'Alice' will stay with you for days
Best listened to on a lounging around on a hazy sun drenched afternoon or staying up all night with a magical bout of insommia. You will not forget this CD in a hurry!
The enchanting and somewhat trippy ambiance of this compliation will draw you in within the first few bars of the opening track "2 Wicky" by Hoover and not let go until the fun filled "I need love" best known from the Ralph Lauren adverts is over.
The selection is perfect; sucessfully mixing tip hop (Glory Box), summery pop rock (Rocket Boy), jazz (Annie Mae) and old skool motown classics (Superstition). There is something for all tastes and I'm sure you'll be finding yourself checking out some of the unheard of artists listed. (This album is the soul reason I fell in love with Portishead).
In conclusion this album is not to be missed, I would buy it if only to listen to the bewitching eeriness that is "Alice" by the Cocteau Twins, the good old fashioned pianistic talent that is John Lee Hooker with "Annie Mae" or of course the hauting beautiful vocals of Beth Gibbons in the perfect "Glory Box" by Portishead.
Definatly not to be missed!

A good variety of different songs,my main reason for buying was the elizabeth fraser track.
Well packed and in very good time. Read more
Some great tracks on here that I'd forgotten. A bit of a trip down memory lane for the nearly-forty age group, as well as some classics. A great Summertime listen.Published on 8 May 2013 by Docretro
