Amy Passmore:

Otis Redding – I've Been Loving You Too Long

This song gives me goosebumps every time I hear it.  The soul that Otis sings with is unparalleled.  It's like he couldn't be contained, it's like there was something inside of him that just needed to get out.  To think he died at the age of 25, and he already had that much soul….


Shaheena Pooloo:

Connan Mockasin – Forever Dolphin Love


I just like it


Andy Altmann:

Ian Dury – England's Glory  

It's a terrible live recording but I love this song as it's a beautiful list of all things that's make us English. It should be the English national anthem.


Kate Rogers:

Lloyd Cole and the Commotions – Lost Weekend


It's a perky one. Whatever it was they got up to sounds pretty fun… and I dont think he regrets it really…


Gustavo Fernandes:

Robbie Basho – Blue Crystal Fire

Effortless and ethereal


Janet Moses:

Randy Crawford – Street Life  

A great funky song to dance to. Always puts a smile on my face


David Ellis:

Arctic Monkeys – Riot Van  

The Arctic Monkeys was one of the first band's I took my sons to see. I love the dichotomy of a tender song about being arrested and beaten up by the police.


Joseph Lion:

Adesse – Supernal  

An unbelievable electronic record that hasn't left my turntable since its release. 
A sample of Laurie Anderson, a hint of Massive Attack and an eye watering bass line.


Clayton Welham:

Letherette – After Dawn


These guys are mates of mine but i really like it anyway!


Yugen Blake:

The Stone Roses – I Wanna Be Adored


Heaton Park 2012 sealed it. Perfect record.
