A Little Taste Of...

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stewart Mason

The only reason Little Taste Of works is that this kind of wide stylistic variety is what fans expect from Bargain Music, and that all the tracks have the same level of tongue-in-cheek looseness. Although probably not the best starting point for newcomers, there's much for fans to enjoy here. [This 2005 Beatville CD has a bonus CD-R track.]
