Tracklisting

(JP: "Well you can advance any name you like, but I still say Gene Vincent, very greatest of the rockers. That's Race With The Devil, one of the all time favourites as I say.  On my birthday programme, actually on my own programme, Thursday night August the 30th, I'll shall be playing my 40 favourite records ever and I started making lists of course, because I'm a compulsive maker of lists. And my first has a 150 records on it and that's just the singles, so it's gonna take alot of paring down, but I'll do it, I'll do it.")
(JP: "And that's Robert Palmer, demonstrating conclusively that you could be very good looking and still make boring records. That's a new single called Jealous. Lots of good stuff coming after the news, including this week's best record of the whole world ever, but first this.")
