You know the script by now..... Taking the listener on a laid back journey through their musical inspirations, the series has encompassed some of the greatest producers of the last 20 years. Each album features a cover version produced exclusively for the project by the compilers themselves and a spoken word story, which in this case is read by none other than Sir Patrick Moore.
This edition to the series undulates from soul to contemporary house via the likes of Grace Jones, Aretha Franklin and Al Green....... not forgetting, of course, that classic Mr. Fingers moment. And with the wealth of musical knowledge possessed by Groove Armada, not only does the track selection blow your mind but the technicalities ain't so bad either; check out the Roy Ayers/Jeru the Damaja soundclash and their exclusive stellar cover version of 'Fly Me to the Moon'. With 2 fantastic albums already under their belt, they have certainly added another twist to their tale; the true story of a late night with Groove Armada.are also not bereft of some serious chugging. A chug, for those of you unsure, is somewhere south of a truck and north of a boogie and we can thoroughly recommend it as a certain cure for chilblains, gout and Sunday blues. Try Fern Kinneys slow electro-disco Baby Let Me Kiss You or Gina Xs Teutonic dancefloor dalliance, Kaddish, or even Farahs Mogadisco Law Of Life for size. As always, because this is a Late Night Tales rule and because we like to spoil you, Lindstrom has done an exclusive cover version, the sublime Let It Happen, a Balearic classic in its Vangelis original form and perfectly modernised by lanky chap with the ten-day growth.
