Soho Continental

On Bob Stanley’s label, here is an exotic collection of rarities that evoke the heart of Bohemian London in the fifties and sixties. The coffee bars, the trattorias, the ouzo, Ricard and whatever Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud’s tipple might be in the Colony Room.

It’s a delicious and unique blend of sounds from France, Italy, Spain, Greece and Turkey, all mixed up in a cocktail shaker at Abbey Road.

It’s a fast vanishing world, knobbled by Crossrail, so catch it while you can!

• Disappearing Soho is a major news story – here’s the soundtrack to its golden age of sin and cappuccinos
• Most tracks available for the first time on CD
• Gorgeous artwork
• Thorough sleevenotes by legendary DJ Martin Green
