This was Alan Clark's first volume of diaries and the only one he recorded himself. As such it is a unique historical record of the man and his work. He wrote one of the most forthright and honest political diaries ever, being a warts and all picture of the Thatcher era. The colourful language is very adult and is frequently laugh out loud funny. His proximity to power gave him a clear view of all the manoeuvrings and gossip within Westminster and Whitehall, and he was never one to hold back on his opinions. Over 3 CDs, he also touches on his private life, Saltwood and his passion fo animals.

The Best of Soul Music Soul had its roots in the 1950s when two forms of African-American music came together in a rather unlikely alliance. These were the pure yet emotional gospel sounds of the Southern Baptist church, and the more worldly, rocking approach of rhythm & blues. In 1954 Ray Charles took an old gospel song and gave it an R & B makeover to come up with I Got A Woman. For many that's where soul began. This compilation is a celebration of the best of early Soul Music.
