I built and ran this website between 2000 and 2001. It was listed by MTV's now defunct MusicNewswire as one of the then nascent web's top twenty sources, alongside Billboard and VH1. The most exciting part of it — for a 13/14-year-old excited by new music — was receiving scores of pre-release CDs from record companies. The entire project was written in PHP linking to a MySQL database, with HTML as well as a little CSS and JavaScript for the frontend; the code, which I am still proud of, is available here.

Stereophonics - Handbags And Gladrags
19 November 2001 | 9:00:00 GMT/UTC
Release: 31 December 1969 | 16:00:00 (V2)

StereophonicsHandbags And Gladrags is the Stereophonics' version of Rod Stewart's 1970 classic, taken from the veteran rocker's An Old Raincoat Won't Ever Let You Down debut album. This version was recorded earlier this year with Jools Holland And His Rhythm And Blues Orchestra for Jools' New Year's Eve Hootennany.

The single is a gorgeous rendition of the original with Kelly Jones' gravel-voiced (just like Rod's) vocals singing the most melodious of the Stereophonics' records to date, and their first (single) cover. His vocals are enhanced by the excellence of Jools Holland's band.

Gorgeous.
