Please, Please, Please: A Tribute to the Smiths features covers by Tanya Donelly, The Wedding Present, and Built to Spill's Doug Martsch.
In a slim release week I can also recommend Charlotte Gainsbourg's new album Stage Whisper, which contains both studio recordings and live tracks.
Queen's Royal Orb USB Limited Edition Premium Box Set is a majestic orb that contains a USB stick containing every studio release by the band.
