THE latest release from post-pub favourite Jools Holland's legendary vehicle, this double album attempts to skim the cream of the last three years' performances, as the format rattles towards its 200th show.

But with 39 tracks from an embarrassment of riches, there's bound to be some favourite performance that isn't featured, begging the question why the BBC doesn't just offer them all through iTunes or similar.

In true Jools style there's plenty of big names (Razorlight, Amy Winehouse) alongside '08's stars-in-waiting like Duffy and Adele, but there are no

performances here.

Loses a star for an abysmal cut'n'paste over the f-word in Greenday's American Idiot. 2/5
