Pop: Sleeves Notes
Saturday 31 October 1998
At least pounds 4.15 from the sale of each CD goes to the charity. Artists have donated their work free and the track listing reads like an eclectic who's who of the dance world.
Just some of the people on this excellent and diverse album are Fatboy Slim, Boy George and Mica Paris (above), Moby, Texas, ADF, Howie B, Morcheeba and St Etienne.
Still on a charity theme, the Mobo organisation has announced the recording by a cast of some of the UK's best R'n'B acts of the McFadden & Whitehead classic "Ain't No Stoppin Us Now" in aid of the Sickle Cell Anemia charity. Among those featured on the single, which will be released on 14 November, are Beverley Knight, Mica Paris (above) and Another Level.
Christmas is coming and you can support the music industry in its quest for yuletide millions. This year there are Christmas singles slated for release from Robbie Williams, Boyzone, Aqua, Spice Girls and B*Witched.
Meanwhile, there's a mass of greatest hits albums, from Paul Weller, U2 and George Michael, as well as that Oasis B-sides CD (see p43). But as a gift, why not choose some new music? Recommended are Gomez and Wheat for rock types and Morcheeba and Jurassic 5 for those who like beats.
