Tony Benn’s Greatest Hits is a compilation album of memorable speeches delivered by one of the greatest orators of our time, set to music composed by a 21st century maestro. The first track on the album features a powerful speech made during a House of Commons debate on war in Iraq before the start of the bombing campaign in 1998 – laid over an ambient “groove” that mixes elements of jazz, R&B and classical music.
