Various - New Woman The Classics
It's that time of year again when you ask yourself, "What will I get mum for Mother's Day?" New Woman The Classics, probably not by any coincidence, features mother-friendly music aplenty; that's if you assume mums pass their time listening to (mainly) Radio 2.
Although the track listing includes a fair few horrors, it's still a better bet than I Love Mum 2007, released March 12th. Not only is it double the size, but it includes fab recent pop tunes from Lily Allen, Jamelia, and All Saints, in addition to classic soul from Al Green and Aretha Franklin. It could, in fact, be worth buying just to introduce your mum to Mazzy Star. Into Dust sticks out here for being both the least exposed and most gorgeous song. That alone should guarantee Sunday roast invites for the next year.
