As the end of the first disc approaches, now seems as good a time as any to mention that I've generated playlists on Deezer and Spotify of the tracks covered on this album so far, as there's no official version available. I shall try to keep these updated to the end of the album, where possible. New post later tonight.
An entirely unofficial track-by-track examination of highlights and lowlights from the Now That's What I Call Music compilations. And if that doesn't sound like a challenge, you're obviously not an old curmudgeon like me.
