    Thank you for taking the time to make this list, and to add all the links to the videos, I can’t wait to listen to some tracks I’ve never heard about. To me that’s the best thing about “lists”, I get to discover stuff that would of passed by me.

    I thought that the cover on James Blake’s album was The Limit To Your Love, originally by Feist not Wilhelm Scream – unless his best two songs turn out to be covers.

    Just checked – Wilhelm Scream was definitely written by Blake

  • Hello

    I wish I could just download all of these in a .rar file.

    Grand list.

  • Hello

    His father actually wrote “Where To Turn” which Blake used as a basis for “The Wilhelm Scream”. Pretty wild: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OBruNqvz-c0
