Hit Parade. I am ADDICTED to this thing. I was too young to have gotten into The Jam or Style Council in their day, so my first exposure to Weller was his early 90s stuff which sounded a bit too Adult Contmeporary for my tastes. I had no idea half these songs Id been hearing for years were his. This thing is tops. Recommended even if youve never heard any of his stuff before.

'Catch-Flame'? I haven't heard it yet. The previous live acoustic one from 2001 called 'Days of Speed' is really good too. The last thing I got was 'Illumination' and that one is a turkey. Don't bother.

Were you asking if it was "Catch Flame"? Naw, this one is the new one: "Hit Parade'

I didn't care for that one much. Kinda boring.
Sail Away: The Songs of Randy Newman -7.5/10
Dusty Springfield - Dusty in Memphis 8.5/10
Buddy & Julie Miller - Written in Chalk wow, first listen, but great great record! 9.3/10
Justin Townes Earle - Midnight at the Moviessurprisingly great, never picked up his past releases, but this one's knocking my socks off right away, 8.7/10
M. Ward - Hold Time 8.0/10
Neko Case -Middle Cyclone her best I've heard is my initial impression, but too soon to rate, haven't had a really good listen yet 7.8/10

This isnt live? I thought he sounded too good. I thought it was just one of those ones where they prune out the audience noise. Im retarded. Its still really good tho
