The Listening Club - 26th January 2014

Hallo chums! @JimMcCauley here, doing the honours this week while Eric's off on his hols. So instead of Amsterdam this week's edition's coming to you from the Beautiful Georgian City of Bath (TM), where the sun's finally, hesitantly, putting his hat on. I've been nursing a gentle hangover after sampling a fair old bit of single malt at an excellent and completely inauthentic Burns' Night supper. I was the only one there to show up in a (pretty fabulous) kilt and the haggis was vegan. I'm still not entirely sure what a neep is.

Last week @samsmitter did his Listening Club duty and treated us to Love's "Four Sail", a later and lesser-known offering from Arthur Lee and his merry men. The late 60s vibe went proved a stone groove hit and provoked actual talk of face-painting. Steady, now. So thanks to Sam for the pick and his well-aimed fling of the frisbee at @jonnydapigg, who'll be taking charge of things round here for his selection next week.

For now, though, it's the Cooking Vortex! You've deliberated, cogitated and digested, and come up with quite a splendidly diverse running buffet of musical delicacies. It's been a treat to assemble; thanks to everyone who sent a track!

Direct MP3 download is here, or if you prefer some hot Mixcloud action you can get it right here (usual caveat about Mixcloud telling you at least some of the song titles applies).

Search #listeningclub to join the conversation, and follow @listeningclub for the admin.

See you tonight at 8PM GMT!
