4 stars Just a plug for the new version of Brooklands. This was, historicallym an OK track on Folklore and there was IIRC further works in progress on Second Brightest Star. This new version *utterly* transforms the track - turns it, frankly into an epic piece that at times sounds like something out of a Bond Film, and leaps it up the table of BBT's best songs.

This album of reworks and presents what now must be considered the definitive version of three BBT long-songs.

The live version of Atlantic Cable is nice. I struggle with Alberto Bravin but my main criticism is simply that he is not David Longdon, and that's not his fault.
