Image Released in late 2010, this compilation features a collection of acoustic performances from The Dermot O’Leary Show, BBC Radio 2. Many guests artists from the show are included, among them Amy Winehouse, Keane, The Leisure Society, Bat For Lashes, Lisa Hannigan or The Divine Comedy. Neil Hannon was interviewed for the show on August 14th 2010 and also played a couple of songs ‘I Like’ and his cover of ‘Time To Pretend’ by MGMT which was usually played at live gigs at the time. It is that cover version which is included on this release. Although at the time of the release, MGMT did not get the chance yet to hear that cover version [1]

The release is packaged as a double digipak which comes with a small booklet. The booklet features some notes by Dermot O’Learly, photos of various sessions (but not with Neil Hannon) as well as a detailed tracklisting. The Divine Comedy track is featured on the second disc.
