Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

World 2001 has a mainstream label's muscle pumping hard behind it, but it is also proud to please the seasoned global trawler. Veteran DJ Charlie Gillett has cherry-picked 30 tracks from nearly as many countries, reflecting the broadly appealing range of his BBC London Live radio show. Gillett was first on air back in the early 1970s, and was one of the key movers behind the forging of the world music shopping-category in the 1980s. His choices are nowhere near obvious, and new addictions will result from spinning the two discs in this set. There are some flabbergasting revelations, such as Momo Wandel Soumah's "Toko", treading very slowly, with gravelly vocals giving way to inspired flute and tenor saxophone solos, or Alemayehu Eshete's "Betchayen Tegodahu", a timelessly lo-fi Ethiopian ska-funk slink, complete with magically ululating vocals. Susheela Raman's "Mamavatu" has certainly become a grower in recent months, a melody with substance, her ornamented voice backed by the detailed guitar flourishes of Sam Mills. More familiar names include Radio Tarifa, Los Lobos and Taraf De Haidouks, the latter Romanians relishing the sound of a harshly dragged bow across frayed gut-string, toothless vocals responding to a growing momentum. --Martin Longley

Who needs Santa Claus? Charlie Gillett has brought Christmas early to this house! World 2001 is a fabulous smorgesbord of styles and traditions desgned to please even the fussiest of world music fans. From the heartbeat behind Ka Karanga Te Tinana by Wai from New Zealand, to the trancelike Sema by Acid Queen, a Tanzanian/Norwegian collaboration (I kid you not!) Charlie has certainly shown me inside a range of music I wouldn't otherwise have know where to start with. Buy it! You won't regret it!

World music??? Hmmmm, I don't think so, after all I came in to look for classical music.
Well, everything worth a try at least once anyway.
Post arrived, pop in the CD and WOW, this is absolutely amazing, the breadth and colours of musics contained in this CD is simply unrivalled.
Believe me, one song and you'll be hooked, it got percussion, trumpets, guitars and gravelly voice to mention but a few.
This is the kind of CD that you buy and you play on dinner with your friends and improve your social standing instantly.
BUY BUY BUY, before everybody else listen to it and you'll be left wondering where you can get the CD.
BUY!!!!!!!

just imagine how much brilliant music is produced around the world that is never heard in europe and america. charlie gillett sifts through all of that, plays it on his bbc show, and then by gauging the listening audience's response, collects favorite cuts on 2 discs, more than 30 songs. gillett is a great tour guide who doesn't steer you wrong. call it an introduction to new or overlooked artists. call it a collection that even if you knew the artists represented, you would have trouble collecting plus-30 obscure recordings. either way, if world music is what turns you on, stop here first and stop back every year. The subsequent yearly versions of this disc are just as valid.
