As a teenager in the sixties, George Harrison and Brian Jones introduced most of us to what is now known as World Music. No sooner had we listened to Indian Ragas and Morroccan pipes and realised that there was more to music than blue eyed soul when Missa Luba came along. Of course "If" made the album popular, but it was and still is a major milestone in International music and an album that stands head and shoulders above what we had listened to before and a lot since. This is not just nostalgia, but a recording that gets stronger with every listening. The voices of Les Troubadours du Roi Baudouin reach such an addictive high, that it's difficult not to sing along, although I haven't got a clue what the words are! The absolute innocence and freedom that the whole album reflects, leaves the listener in no doubt that they have just heard one of the most uplifting albums that they are ever going to hear.
