Editorial Reviews

Belle & Sebastian are the latest in a long line of acclaimed artists to share their music collection with fans on Azuli’s celebrated CD series LateNightTales. Compiled by the group, LateNightTales is the perfect representation of their eclectic tastes and musical influences.

Belle & Sebastian’s take on LateNightTales is fresh, varied and effortlessly hip. Never tied to any scene in the first place (and still further out on a limb 10 years later), these Glaswegians seem to have developed as a band that can draw influences from just about anywhere. Pure pop, ‘60s psyche, ‘70s rock, West Coast harmonies, beat groups, folk balladeering, punk, indie, girl groups and bossanova, are just a few of the slants to crop up without musical contradictions within the Belles’ own work.

The comp features an exclusive cover of Belle & Sebastian doing "Cassaco Marron" originally by the Latin group Trio Esperanca, which formed back in 1958 - further illustrating the group's eclectic and wide range of taste in music. Also includes songs by Paperclip People, RJD2, Stereolab, The Peddlers, Johnny Cash, The Ethiopians, Walter Jackson, Gal Costa, Ramsey Lewis, Steve Miller Band, Mum, and more, as well as an exclusive spoken word track by David Shrigley.

5.0 out of 5 stars A treasure trove of music gems-- wow! March 1, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the second Late Night Tales CD I've purchased and once again I am floored at how cool this set of music is. Absolute gems like The Peddlers version of "On a Clear Day"-- a version I had never heard before, was a revelation. So many excellent tracks. This is a set of music selected by, in this case, Belle and Sebastian. If you like independent artists and prefer not to hear recycled top 40 from the past but rather hear incredibly cool stuff that you might have missed, then I'd give this CD a try.

4.0 out of 5 stars Neat collection! February 15, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Great collection of songs that show the range and influence of Belle and Sebastian, the great indie pop/chamber pop group from Scotland. Belle and Sebastian do contribute one track, but the rest are by a variety of great artists, all showcasing their talent.

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT a Belle & Sebastian cd... please know that!! June 9, 2012
Format:Audio CD
On this release there is only one Belle & Sebastian song, which is sung in Portuguese (I believe), and it's not even a good tune in my opinion. All of the other tracks are hand-selected by B&S. It is basically a mix cd. When I purchased my copy I was not aware that "LateNightTales" is a recurring series of "mix cds" put together by bands who are chart toppers in the UK.

There might be some gems among the songs, but it's really all over the place in terms of genres and needless to say it was not what I expected.

To conclude... I repeat, this is NOT a Belle & Sebastian cd. Go buy one of their full lengths, you cannot go wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Air is not on this CD June 13, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is Belle & Sebastian at there late night best. Very ecletic,very well paced. Some reviewers are mixing this with The LateNight tales which features Air and Belle & Sabastian which is just as good. make sure you get the CD with 26 tracks not 18 for both these CD's.
