Best Of Billy Bragg At The Bbc 1983-2019 on CD

Best Of Billy Bragg At The BBC 1983-2019 is a new double CD compilation of classic Billy Bragg performances at the BBC from the early 80s through to the present. The album, fully remastered and featuring many previously unreleased tracks, includes selected highlights from sessions for John Peel, David Jensen, Janice Long, Phill Jupitus, Bob Harris, Tom Robinson and more, and offers a fascinating chronological perspective on the development of one of the UK's most beloved entertainers. Featuring 38 classic tracks, the collection draws from all corners of Billy's catalogue and features, among many gems, his signature song "A New England" (later covered to huge acclaim by Kirsty MacColl), "Levi Stubbs' Tears" and his workers' anthem "There Is Power In A Union," with a couple of atypical covers thrown in, namely John Cale's "Fear Is A Man's Best Friend" and "A13," his personal psycho-geography take on "Route 66." All of these and more paint a picture of a British national treasure plying his trade at a British institution and making the world a better place in the process.
