Anywhere On This Road - Sound of the World

(Warner Classic)

Pioneer DJ Charlie Gillett became the world music guru. His wacky annual compilations are a veritable Who’s Who of contemporary music from all known parts. This selection of 34 artists from 36 countries is his last, as he died unexpectedly in March leaving millions of fans of his BBC World Service and Radio 3 shows bereft.

As significant as John Peel as a taste-maker, this is an arresting selection moving from the Czech Republic’s DVA to New Zealand’s Fat Freddy’s Drop with 32 stunning stops in between.
