Various ‎– Ruby Trax – The NME’s Roaring Forty (Vinyl LP)


So Part 1 of a vinyl package that Mike has shared with us that I’ve got to admit I’m a little envious of. I always have a fondness for a good cover version, a reinterpretation of a well known tune and have even put nights on of just covers.

From 1992 and this see’s the then current (and mostly) Indie bands have a crack at some famous songs. Commissioned by music mag, N.M.E. it came in a sumptuous package in three volumes covering 40 songs. Here is part 1, all are listenable and all seem to be having a great time putting their own sound to the original. I’ve got waiting Part 2 and 3 so stay tuned.

Be back Sunday Night!

  1. I bought the triple CD of this for the Jesus Jones track alone. And i feel it was the best one on the collection 🙂

    1. I think I was a bit too nice about the vol 1. There is actually only a couple of tracks on this one that were bearable.

  2. WOW, this is awesome! At first, I thought it was the Rubayat sampler from around the same time with all the cover versions, but this looks even better! Billy Bragg, Mission, J&TMC …

    thank you so much … can’t wait for volumes 2 and 3
