THE first BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge album was one of the unexpected hits of 2006.
Featuring tracks recorded live on Jo Whiley's daytime radio show, the record topped the compilation charts for several weeks.
The second instalment of the series features a similar mix of stripped down acoustic hits and unique cover versions.
