When Justin (Front And Follow and Bad Hand Film) held his stag weekend in a converted barn cum cottage in Suffolk over the weekend of 21 April 2006 I was requested to compile some discs of rock classics in order to build up a party atmosphere for the stag weekend album we were to record en mass into the night.

Despite my PC and iTunes doing everything in their power to prevent me from completing a disc I just about managed to hit a home run with this compilation even if I did in the midst of a drunken frenzy put “Louie Louie” by The Kingsmen on a continual loop for almost half an hour in tribute to the toga party from National Lampoon’s Animal House.

The later tracks on the disc (17 through to 20) were by request from the best man (Racton) but with “Sweet Freedom” by Michael McDonald the disc possessed one of the greatest chorus hooks in Yacht Rock history. Likewise “I’m Alright” by Kenny Loggins would serve to give us a fever for golf and “Back To Paradise” by 38 Special for one weekend only was our Revenge Of The Nerds soundtrack.

Best of times.
