There are plenty of mellow tunes that do make you feel chilled and relaxed, lots of big names, and a good mix of old and new hits. Like the other sets in this series, it offers up excellent value. Disc one mostly focuses on the new stuff, opening up with Scotland's young crooner Paolo Nutini and his early hit single 'Last Request', followed by the beautiful vocals of Gabrielle Aplin on 'Please Don't Say You Love Me'. Disc two is largely made up of standards from the 1960s and 1970s. Big hits like Otis Redding's soulful late-60s number '(Sittin' On) The Dock of The Bay', the original version of 'Wuthering Heights' by Kate Bush, Lou Reed's early hit 'Halloween', and 'If You Don't Know Be My Now' by Simply Red will always be timeless.
