Episode 119: Will of the People – Album Release Day Special with John Wilson…

This bonus episode of the podcast comes on album release day for Paul Weller’s Will of the People boxset. A follow up to 2003’s ‘Fly On the Wall’ that takes the listener through a similar mix of rarities, this time spanning the period 2002 to 2021.

Like its predecessor not only does it make for some great listening but it’s a superb way to hear all those hard to get solo tracks that haven’t been featured on an album before.

This collection has been compiled by Paul Weller himself and Paul has provided artwork ideas and sketches for the design. Alongside this Paul has written track-by-track sleeve notes.

The release includes additional sleeve notes from writer and broadcaster John Wilson who is my special guest on this bonus edition of the podcast…
