5.0 out of 5 stars A True Upper Classy Brit, 3 Mar. 2009
This review is from: At The BBC (Audio CD)
Paul Weller is one of those eternally young, classy statesmen whom one always feels rather jealous of. These 39 tracks are proof that he can do little wrong. Of course, his own classics are treated to both bare-boned reworkings for different BBC sessions as well as sharp-dressed, exciting concerts. But it's the covers that really are the taste-treat here.Check out the bluesy Corrina,Corrina, his take on Canadian Gordon Lightfoot's folk classic Early Morning Rain, the cooly raw Pretty Flamingo, and concert treasures What's Goin' On and Walk On Gilded Splinters. Wellr finds ways to possess these songs so they rise way above mere imitation. Both discs are set up chronolgically as they should be. If you're meeting him for the first time, you'll be enchanted, and longtime fans will find enough mouth-watering treats to keep them in the candy-store until the last song.
