5.0 out of 5 stars Charlie Gillett - Invites you to a World Party 12 July 2010
Format:Audio CD
Many years ago I joined one of those book clubs which offered six books at a knock down price to hook you into some deal where you had to buy a further six books over two years. It was a total chore but as it turned out its only great redeeming feature was that I managed to get as one of the "six" a book by Charlie Gillett "The Sound of the City" that was a fantastic (and remains so) guide into the history of rock from what appeared to be the dawn of time until 1971 (It appears I was sent a rather old edition!). It contained massive insights and knowledge of the highest order into the evolution of rock and its social origins even though its judgements were not always on the mark and sometimes a bit quirky; for example was Neil Young "mostly morose and morbid"? But that was Charlie and like John Peel he was never happier than when he was able to champion something new, distinctive and most of all those musicians who were underdogs and whose access to the mainstream was at best restricted and at worse non-existent.

Gillett was an ever popular DJ who as early as 1979 began to feature music from around the world on his Capital radio show. Later in 1995 he returned with a show on GLR, Radio London's successor, and later began his World Service series in 1999 where in a weekly 26-minute world music show, broadcast on BBC he played music from every corner of the earth and introduced listeners to an eclectic range of brilliant sounds. Charlie passed away in March this year after a long illness and he is sorely missed but with this ever growing series of compilation albums the latest being "Sound of the World Presents Anywhere on this Road" his wonderful legacy lives on.

By S. Ball
Format:Audio CD
Charlie Gillett has been compiling his annual Sound Of The World compilations for a good few years now (and the World compilations before them), and was putting this one together at the time of his premature death in March 2010. I don't know if I'm being overly sentimental due to his loss, but this is my favourite of them all. The reason is simple - this compilation is much more worldwide in origin than some of its predecessors which felt very Africa-heavy. Some of the tracks on Anywhere On This Road, including the stunning title track by late North American singer Lhasa, Jaco by Yasmin Levy and the penetrating Ben Seni Sevdigumi by Turkey's Sevval Sam, stick with you for a long time due to the raw emotion they convey. Others, like DVA's Dua and Tinariwen's Tenhert are so infernally catchy they worm into your brain and will not leave. Yet others will have you shuffling around the room (Staff Benda Bilili's Moziki, Ojos De Brujo's Nueva Vida), and more can just be classified under the heading 'a great listen', such as Fat Freddy's Drop with The Raft, and Duoud and Malouma's Missy Nouackshott. These Sound Of The World compilations are more than just a World Music version of 'NOW Album', because NOW albums have half a dozen triumphs and a lot of filler, whereas these compilations feature gem after gem after gem. If you like to listen to new things, there's no better way to introduce yourself to such a wide range in 34 tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Charlie Gillett's last compilation 10 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A good mix, as always. Worth keeping because it's the last selection, chosen before Charlie's untimely death.
