BBC Record Review 16 January 2016

I created a playlist in Apple Music of all the recordings reviewed on BBC Radio 3’s Record Review on 16 January (or at least, those that are available).

The whole playlist is here, and I’ve linked to individual recordings below. If a title isn’t linked, it wasn’t available at the time I created this post.

Not sure I’ll do this every week, but let’s see how it goes.

BBC Record Review 23 January 2016 playlist

Here’s the playlist for BBC Radio 3’s Record Review of 23 January 2016. At the time of broadcast, only four recordings were available in Apple Music although most of the artists have extensive presence there, which suggests a lot of what’s missing will arrive eventually – particularly if the recording hasn’t actually been released yet.
