V.A. - Later... Live With Jools Holland (2008)
Fans of BBC2's late-night show Later ... with Jools Holland will already know what to expect from this lavish double CD spread. Around two thirds of the acts featured on this release had their TV debuts on the show, which sees veteran muso Jools Holland present the best of up and coming and established pop artists in a wide range of genres from hip hop and world to jazz, blues and rock. A quick look at the tracklisting reveals the caliber of artists to have appeared on the show (which has been running non-stop since 1992): Amy Winehouse, Kasabian, Lily Allen, The White Stripes, Keane, James Blunt, The Flaming Lips, Lily Allen, Muse and Kings Of Leon are some of the bigger names, while Richard Hawley, Estelle, Jose Gonzales, Kano, Primal Scream, CSS and Hard Fi radiate a more alternative, under-the-radar appeal. The live versions of Winehouse's "Tears Dry on Their Own," Hawley's "Valentine" Gnarls Barley's "Crazy," Seasick Steve's "Doghouse Blues" and Kasabian's "Empire" are just a few of the reasons Jools fans will want to own this enchanting profile of contemporary pop. 1, 2, 3.
