The Love Symphony Orchestra – Let Me Be Your Fantasy
The one that everyone seems to go straight for on The Men In The Glass Booth, an album I recently compiled for BBE Records.
The Pretenders - Just Be Yourself

Still sounds amazing every time after eight months of playing it, especially at 3am.

Al Kent plays at Ethos 09 The Reading Rooms in Dundee on Thursday, March 9. The Men In The Glass Booth is out now on BBE.
