    A couple of tracks are missing and there are a couple of alternative versions in place of exact tracks.
    Enjoy.

    Mr. Curtis, if you're reading this: thank you!

    The effort and man-hours that must have been expended in creating It Felt Like A Kiss is probably a staggering total. Well, for a totally immersive experience it was all worth it.

    I was not alive during the period detailed, but I came away with some of the feelings of myopia and violence, renewal and chaos, significance and retail-triviality, that must have pervaded the era.

    Thank you for allowing me to experience the benthic tensions of the time, in a manner unique, and entirely worthy.

    Hey Adam I love your work. I just finished a cut up collage and thought you might appreciate the message.

    Adam, I would just like to say that your work remains of a wonderful standard.

    The music was glorious, weird and as typically spot-on as ever.

    Recently, I heard an interview you gave in which you say bloggers are 'bullies'.

    I know what you mean; but there is some stuff out there that, in my humble opinion, is actually pretty good and adds to your work in a small way.

    Astonishingly, there are parts of the BBC that ban posters from adding urls. More genius from the BBC there. I shan;t be too critical as they also produce some great work.

    Anyway, I would urge you to check this out:

    It is a blog all about the underlying faultlines which compromise the media as well as just offering some random reflections and analysis.

    I loved this so much.

    msymons - thanks for the spotify uri - great.

    One tiny thing, could you please change the River Deep Mountain High to this one:
    spotify:track:4psjgB5e5HIuUeSVbEUY64

    So, so much better, and definitely the one used in the show. I was left haunted by that song as I left the show and walked the streets of Manchester. Incredible.
