Sandie Shaw was one of the most successful British female singers of the 1960s, forever famous for winning the Eurovision Song Contest in 1967 with "Puppet On A String". She dominated the UK charts with a flood of pop hits during the late 1960s - including three number one singles - yet ventured into a funkier direction with this her fifth studio album. This was Shaw's first time producing an album herself and she chose songs by alternative artists from the 1960s with covers of tracks by The Beatles, Rufus Thomas, Lovin' Spoonful, Dr.John, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and what, on release in 1969, was the first ever cover of a Led Zeppelin song (Your Time Is Gonna Come).

This is a recording of Yann Tiersen's Lagniappe Session for Aquarium Drunkard. There’s a lot happening in the collective works of Yann Tiersen. Initially inspired by Einstürzende Neubauten, Throbbing Gristle and other post-punk/industrial groups, Tiersen’s music would soon grow further nuanced, moving in more subtle directions. It’s this which makes the approach to his Lagniappe Session all the more interesting, in that he turns that very direction on its head. Original pieces that could be described as minimalist are uprooted and placed into entirely different realms, as Tiersen tackles a 16+ minute Steve Reich piece, a classic Françoise Hardy chanson, and a tune by E.C. Ball.

God's Son was released in December of 2002, and like Stillmatic before it, was subject to major critical acclaim. On God's Son, Nas effectively took the battle-hardened demeanour he had cultivated and tore it down across 14 tracks that were emotionally insular, though still dusted in urban grit. (And still finding time to shoot back at Jay-Z's potshots on tracks like Last Real Nigga Alive and Mastermind.)
Assisting Nas was a slew of top-tier producers like The Alchemist, Eminem, Ron Browz, and Salaam Remi, (Over samples of James Brown, the Incredible Bongo Band, Fela Kuti, and Beethoven) and guest vocals from Alicia Keys, Kelis, Claudette Ortiz of City High, and even a posthumous 2Pac.
