Romany and Tom.... The Soundtrack!

Ben Watt's wonderful Romany and Tom is published by Bloomsbury this week, on the 13th February.

To mark the occasion he has kindly put together this playlist  (please click to open)

In Ben's own words...

'Whenever I read books with lots of references to music I often wish there was a place to go to listen while you read, so with this in mind I decided to create a soundtrack for my new book, 'Romany and Tom'. From one of the first jazz 78s my dad ever bought in the late 1930s, through his own big band sound of the 50s, to the low-slung slacker 70s and the post-punk energy of my teens, the playlist covers almost all the mentions within the book. Almost two hours to get lost in, covering almost fifty years of music.'
