Looking at it pretty much what I’d expect – late 90’s Brit bands with a showing of older stuff. Was a bit difficult in that there a few things such as opera recordings that would have been on the list if I’d been able to decide between versions, but I’m happy with how it looks.
And I’ll happily defend even the dodgiest looking choices!
