“A sweet-zesty suspension of yearning and blame” Guardian Guide
“[A record whose] charms are irresistible” Clash
“Charming and wryly humorous” Time Out
“Quintessentially British – think The Kinks and Gorkys” DIY

Following the unprecedented success of the super limited vinyl release of the Marc Riley BBC Radio 6Music Sessions back in July, Sweet Baboo has managed to get a hold of some super special Japanese Import CDs of the same release.

As well as 12 tracks hand picked from the wealth of Marc Riley sessions, this package also contains a never before released Huw Stephens session for BBC Radio 1. Recorded in 2010 it includes an early working of Sweet Baboo’s 2013 single ‘If I Died…’ cunningly retitled as ‘If I Died Would Huw Remember”? Plus a rollicking cover of Simon & Garfunkel‘s ‘Keep The Customer Satisfied.’

Copies of this compilation are in limited supply and can only be purchased from the merch stands on the upcoming Sweet Baboo & The Pictish Trail co-headline tour in November & December.

For those who were lucky enough to bag a vinyl and don’t want to shell out twice for the same release, Moshi Moshi will send a download version of the tracks if you email up a picture of your vinyl to
