      Definitely worth the money!

      I bought this CD for a friend, but ended up keeping it and getting her another copy! The selection of songs is incredible, and really is the Golden Age of Song! The tracks are as follows;

      1. Something's Got A Hold On Me - Jools Holland & Paloma Faith
      2. Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive - Jools Holland & Rumer
      3. Lovin' Machine (From The Hootenanny 2009) - Jools Holland & Paolo Nutini
      4. Bei Mir Bist Du Schon - Jools Holland & Joss Stone
      5. Get Here - Jools Holland & Jessie J
      6. A Place In The Sun - Jools Holland & James Morrison
      7. Don't Go To Strangers (From The Hootenanny 2006) - Jools Holland, Amy Winehouse And Paul Weller
      8. I Got It Bad (And That Ain't Good) - Jools Holland & Mick Hucknall
      9. My Baby Just Cares For Me (From The Hootenanny 2009) - Jools Holland & Florence Welch
      10. Mad About The Boy - Jools Holland & Caro Emerald
      11. I'll Sail My Ship Alone - Jools Holland & Tom Jones
      12. Reet Petite (From The Hootenanny 2010) - Jools Holland & Cee Lo Green
      13. Sweet Country Love Song - Jools Holland & Gregory Porter
      14. September In The Rain - Jools Holland & Paul Weller
      15. The Lady Is A Tramp (From The Hootenanny 2008) - Jools Holland & Lily Rose Cooper (Nee Lily Allen)
      16. Get Away Jordan - Jools Holland & Ruby Turner
      17. When You're Smiling (The Whole World Smiles With You) - Jools Holland And His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra

      Now, Jools is one of my favourite artists anyway, but I was a little skeptical of the artists chosen to re-vamp these songs, but there really are some inspired choices! Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive with Rumer is stunning and a great chilled out uplifiting number, and Lovin Machine with Paulo Nutini is incredibly catchy! Now, I was hesitant but Lily Allen's number is very clever and definitely deserves praise. Track 4 (Bei Mir Bist Du Shoen) is a little odd and self indulgent in parts for my liking but a very orignal cover none the less- and I probably only think this as I love the Andrews Sisters original so much!

      The album would be great for young and older alike, as a great revamp of some older numbers- to inspire the new generation to listen to some real music!
