Probably my favourite collection of Billy Bragg tunes: B-sides, A-Sides, Cover Versions and even an unreleased version of a tune or two.











No particular reason for posting it other than the fact I was listening to and thought it would be nice to share some of these great tunes.












The album was released in August 1999 inbetween the Mermaid Avenue releases and reached a respectable number 41 in the UK Charts.
