triple j's Like A Version Anthology

OMG! No WAY! Are you telling us that this CD actually contains THE VERY BEST of live music cover segment Like A Version from the years 2005 to 2009?! What IS this, some kind of PARALLEL UNIVERSE where EVERYONE’S DREAMS just SUDDENLY TOTALLY COME TRUE or something?!?!?!

It seems so, dear music fan. This holy collection of triple j recordings that you’ll soon be touching with your human skin contains some of the most stunning moments of musical ingenuity this planet has ever seen. Ben Folds performs Such Great Heights with a piano and tin foil and a towel and spoons; Philadelphia Grand Jury makes Jay-Z go country; The Wombats put a banjo on The La’s’ There She Goes and The Herd compel us all to reflect with their profoundly stirring rendition of Redgum’s I Was Only 19.

We know the love that’s out there for Like A Version is overwhelming, and it’s a pleasure to reward that love with this compendium of classic LAVs for fans both old and new.

Tom and Alex.
