Danny Baker’s Great Album Showdown (Series 1)

4 Dec

As the show has been picked up by BBC4 and will air new episodes (in January, according to Danny Bakers twitter feed) I decided to rewatch the first 3 shows (which originally aired on February of 2013) to make a list of all the albums that were chosen by Danny & his various guests.

The pickers of rock and pop were quite loud about stating artist & album name, those backing R&B weren’t quite as good.
In fact they were absolute SHIT considering one of them makes his living as a DJ and one of them used to be a SINGER!

So that’s my main complaint, when revealing the albums you’ve chosen, PLEASE make sure the camera can clearly see the title and the name of the artist. And then say BOTH of those nice and loud and clear so we hear them.
Trevor Nelson. Micha Paris.
Naming and shaming you both for you ineptitude.
