I've also got a really nice very long version of Natty Taking Over, but I have to figure out how to convert it, so watch this space!!

Ghostface! Fishscale is one of the best albums of the last five years, or so.

Drop the Natty and I'll have a go at converting it if you want Steen.

I like the use of the Black National Anthem in I Am Somebody, and that version of Paths Of Victory is amazing, I didn't even recognize it was the Bob Dylan song at first.

all top quality playlists this week.

The Champ WAS ace, but Toots, Q-Tip, Billy Bragg and Del Tha.. all did it for me too

Thanks for listening everybody. And as for Paths of Victory - tell it to the Tin man, he had to have been the one to put it in the box, though he's not fessing up.

Duppy Conqueror, Tell me, Jurass my favs here. The Grey Victory song is really strange- the Ask-like poppy backing with those lyrics.. it doesn't compute. Quite like Champion Requiem, nice backing, sometimes I find that lacking with Mos Def.
Battlesong also nicely quirky.
