    Well, this has been out for over 20 years now, but I just found it used.

    Ruby Trax, a 3-CD set celebrating NME's 40th anniversary. 40 bands covering 40 #1 hits. Pretty awesome.


    Ruby Trax - The NME's Roaring Forty is a compilation album released by the magazine NME in 1992 to commemorate 40 years of publication. The album features 40 cover versions of classic Number 1 songs by popular bands of the era. It was released in the following formats: three LPs (NME40LP), three CDs (NME40CD) or two cassettes (NME40MC), all having a total of 40 songs.
    The album spawned a double A-side single featuring Manic Street Preachers' version of "Suicide Is Painless", which was listed as "Theme from M.A.S.H.", and The Fatima Mansions' take on Bryan Adams' "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You" . The 12" and CD versions of the single included an extra Manic Street Preacher song "Sleeping with the NME". The single peaked at #7 in the UK Singles Chart.[2]
    All proceeds from the album went to the charity The Spastics Society.

    That actually looks like something I'd enjoy, especially the track with Marr and Duffy. Nice find!
    So, I broke into the palace
    With a sponge and a rusty spanner
    She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
    I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

    Nah, too many good tracks on it. It takes me a 5 or 6 disc comp to make one with a discs worth of good stuff on it. You know that!
