MrScott:Music - The Best Of 1997 - Part 1

Playing tracks by

Primal Scream, Oasis, Ocean Colour Scene, Paul Weller, Teenage Fanclub and more.

Quite simply a vintage year in music, and a huge turning point for me. I had just turned 13 and having spent the last few years enjoying Britpop, this was a year that delivered some truly classic albums. Towards the end of 1997 I compiled a single 90 minute cassette of my choice tracks from the year. 13 years on in 2010, to my knowledge I no longer have the tape, so I decided to attempt to re-create an extended version of the compilation. So here it is, 85 TRACKS... Sitting down for an evening listening to this compilation made me truly realise what an incredible year that was for music overall, and the fact that it couldn't be anything less than 85 great songs does prove what a golden year 1997 was....
