Northern Edition CD Compilation.

I suppose this is what we used to call a "Sampler". Well, this is a very much updated sampler. Not only do we have 12 bands from the Edition label's roster we also have them delightfully curated by Fiona Talkington. Of the bands, few mean much to me apart from Phronesis and Dave Stapleton who was also executive producer.
Nevertheless, it's all here so you can judge for yourself - a bit like a jazz X Factor!
Listen.

Interesting - the "listen" link leads to an album with 24 tracks (apparently). Only the first 13 are listed in Spotify and each consists of a short (< 1 minute) soundbite about the track from Fiona Talkington (talking). No music - perhaps tomorrow, eh?

Lance said...

Strange, it works for me, 12 tracks and 12 introductions are what the 24 comprise of. For some reason you've only got the introductions

Hugh said...

Yep, found it thanks, Lance. I had to click another disc icon underneath the 12 (not 13!)track listings of Fiona Talkington's introductions. Interesting...
... not sure I'll be buying the disc though.
