We started the show last week with a track from the album 'Oh How We Danced' by Jim Capaldi called 'Love Hurts'. This is on a new set from Esoteric Records - 'Open Your Heart : The Island Recordings 1972-1976'. Some superb stuff here!

Jasmine Records have issued a CD that salutes the work of Lionel Bart. Remembered for his work on musicals, this set features tracks from Tommy Steele, Anthony Newley, Shirley Bassey, Max Bygraves, Russ Conway and Alma Cogan in the show this week. . Also, from the same label comes a collection of the early hits from Kenny Ball - and there were a lot of them! 'Singles Collection 1960-1962' is out now. See for more information.
