RuralsReinterpretations ... CD
Peng (UK), 2003. Used ... $8.99
We're not normally the biggest fans of remix albums, but this set is pretty darn great – and stands equally nicely next to the regular full length sets by The Rurals!

Soulful house and mellow grooves – very much in the spirit of some of the work from Naked Music, with a similar warm finish!
