Has anyone heard about this compilation before? Apparently it released on the 14th of September, but I only managed to hear about it for the first time while reading the Nov. issue of Uncut. A blurb about it with the track listing:

Quote :
Guy Garvey, frontman of Mercury Prize Winning band Elbow, has assembled a new compilation CD, including some of his favourite songs and artists that have influenced him. Of the 23 tracks on the compilation, there's a lot of old blues and soul artists on it, some quite obscure, and some numbers which he has played regularly on his BBC 6 Music radio show 'Guys Garvey's Finest Hour'.

'The Elbow Variations' is due for release on September 14th. The tracklist is as follows:
