William Dart revels in a remastered reissue of The Kinks' 1972 album Everybody's In Show-Biz, and takes a quick look at James Blake's new album The Colour in Anything.

A few weeks back in his programme on Bob Dylan's Blonde On Blonde, William ended with Nina Simone's cover of "Just Like A Woman". He was very tempted at the time to use Norwegian jazz singer Radka Toneff's version instead. Full of half-regrets, he finishes off today's programme with this because it's too good not to share.
