Music Millennium

UK holiday collection. Sarah Cracknell, Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs have ransacked their record collections, with a helping hand from DJ Martin Green, to give you the sound of Piccadilly in December - baubles, bangles, tinsel and whisky macs. This is a decidedly London selection - Joe Henderson's 'Sleighride' has the distinct feel of Hampstead Heath rather than Lapland. Homegrown rockers like Billy Fury and Adam Faith are found rubbing shoulders over a Christmas pint with John Barry and jazzers Kenny Baker and John Dankworth. Tricia Marks and Lyn Cornell provide festive glamour. Saint Etienne member and pop historian Bob Stanley writes the sleevenotes. This is a soundtrack for the Hamley's shop window and a proper '60s UK time capsule.
