Various - Not Given Lightly: The Giant Golden Book Of New Zealand's Alternative Music Scene (2009)

Being a New Zealander and seeing these classic alternative tunes being remade has given me an enormous sense of nostalgia and good old Kiwi pride. I grew up on the originals of some of these tunes and to see them covered by an international array of today's artists like B. Fleischmann & American Analog Set reaffirms how great they really are. I've included the original video clip of Not Given Lightly by Chris Knox below.
