There’s nothing like finding records in the street.

Musically it was a mixed bag to say the least – ranging from mainstream R&B/rap to nu-soul/broken beat and certainly not much within the remit of this blog.
That said, I was quite taken with this recent – but obscure (not on Discogs) – treatment of Dub Be Good to Me. Suffice to say it beats Prof Green’s current chart-topper:
