Still the only known CD series to include its own coaster as part of every cover package, this Orange Iced Tea volume from 2002 includes a wide variety of musical styles.
More of a soundtrack for lounging about on a lazy Sunday, sipping a wee cup of tea, or something much stronger if you’re that way inclined, it includes from the ’60s (Jack Jones’ “Wives and Lovers”), the ’70s (Jimmie Rodgers’ “I’ll Never Fall in Love Again”), the ’80s (the Style Council’s “Down in the Seine”), and the ’90s (the Trashcan Sinatras’ “How Can I Apply”).
What’s pretty cool about this compilation is there doesn’t appear to be a song out of place, it all just seems to hang together – stick it in the old CD player and before you know it your feet will be tapping away, all the way to the end – well, at least mine were.
Other highlights include Manfred Mann’s “Mighty Quinn,” and Chris Montez’s “Time After Time.”
More tea, vicar?
