Pretty typical programming here: Maria Muldaur, Michael Jackson, 4hero, all the usual suspects. Ummm...excuse me? This compilation plays a bit like a mix tape made just before sunrise after a few too many, but selector Matteo Sola manages to (mostly) pull it off. By attempting to draw lines between evergreen troubadour Terry Callier's "Keep Your Heart Right," Stereolab's kaleidoscopic "Percolator," and the previously mentioned Jackson's take on "People Make the World Go 'Round," Sola provides a mildly loopy soundtrack just fine for people-watching at a sidewalk caf?.
