Radio 1 have an album of cover versions out for their 40th anniversary. The gimmick is that a top pop act of today covers a song from each of the forty years the station has been going.

Stylus Magazine’s “Singles Jukebox” blog is reviewing each of the forty tracks on the record. Because I am a mentalist I ended up reviewing all forty of them – how many of my blurbs editor William B Swygart will use I have no idea, especially as towards the end I think my reviews stopped making a lick of sense. When the whole thing is done (after this week) I will probably put my review up here as a C90-Go style essay (I reviewed each track while it played, one listen only). In the meantime enjoy my burblings and others’ perhaps more considered impressions.
