Yeah, I have the CD.
I have to say it's one of the more eclectic samplers I've heard over the past couple years, and it's quickly becoming a favorite. The liner notes state it's their attempt at the audio geek digging through someone's record collection after he's come home with some buds after clubbing and putting together one weird-ass mix (or something to that effect).
In addition to Marvin Gaye, they have Brian Eno (from My Life in the Bush of Ghosts), Beta Band, Nightmares on Wax, John Barry's cover of The Persuaders Theme, and they end it with The Swingle Singers' cover of Bach's Prelude & Fugue in C Minor.
You can't listen to it as just background music, because eventually something is going to catch your attention, make you sit down, behave yourself, and give your full attention to the rest of the disk.
I am definitely anxious for Fila's next release of their own stuff, but I have to say this is a very pleasant surprise in the interim.

A friend of mine just got the unmixed triple pack Fila Brazillia "Another
Late Night". Awesome tracklisting -- they even include Marvin Gaye's
seminal track "T plays it cool". WOW!
Has anybody heard the mix CD? Is it any good? I have to run out and buy
the wax now... :)
