Following Keith’s redesign, I’ve recently been perusing the asterisk* back catalogue and particularly enjoying its song of the week feature, so much so that I may ‘borrow’ the idea (but without the Flash player).

Notable exceptions because I have vinyl copies and my crappy PC cannot competently digitise an analogue source:
