"There's nothing of great historical significance here, just Tucker Martine wandering round Mali in 1998, recording everything from snatches of radio to the sound of Dogon Country at night. Beautiful!"

"Sublime recordings from the early part of the 20th century. The stand out is the hilarious 'Old Time Cat 'o' nine' by calypso master Lord Invader. There's loads of other magnificent performances."

"Rich and raw Irish music recorded in ex-chieftan Matt Malloy's pub. The ambiance is electric with glasses breaking, cheering and musicians chattering as they play. Some heart-achingly beautiful tracks"

"Rain Forest tribes singing, drumming and dancing. This is part of an expedition undertaken by the Library of Congress. An utterly spellbinding set of recordings from a place where music is everything."
Music for the Gods

"Gloriously rich trance music from Gamelan orchestras, dance ensembles and master musicians. Listening to this, it's easy to see how this music inspired John Cage."

"Alan Lomax again. These polyphonic styles of singing just don't exist in Italy any more. Partenza is astonishing, I couldn't believe what I was hearing the first time I put this track on."

"The master again, documenting his, at the time, very dangerous trips to record African-American musicians. Heart-breaking and inspiring, this is magnificent writing."

"Contains various essays and writings from Lomax. Veers from very academic and dry in some essays, to passion-filled passages about song collecting in Spain and despatches from Voodoo ceremonies."
