Most of the tracks from last night's show came from the two CDs pictured, which I purchased with some birthday vouchers. Money well spent.

It was also Ray Davies' birthday so there were three Kinks tracks, including The Thanes' excellent cover.

Next week's show has already been recorded so I'll post that tracklist next Sunday.
