The chilly royalty of Bristol select their favourite long players in anticipation of ATP's I'll Be Your Mirror, New Jersey.


Serge Gainsbourg - L'Histoire De Melody Nelson
Geoff Barrow: As a non-French speaker I can only relate on a musical level to this album. I love the connection between the three or so studio players, working together as a tight unit rather than being part of the orchestra also used. The players totally vibe with each other using dynamics of playing - something very hard to hear in modern production of popular music.
