I had great hopes for this when I found it a few years ago in a second-hand store. It wasn’t an expensive purchase, and even now it’s still widely available on Discogs for around a fiver. Sadly, the idea and concept just feel to be better than the actual execution, but this might well be down to the fact that I’m such a huge fan of the original versions of the songs.
