Charlie,

It's always good to hear L. Cohen in my opinion, but something
that I've never heard properly is this song which must be somewhere in the BBC library. And that song is Anna Marly singing "La Complainte du Partisan" which Cohen translated and then rather movingly recorded as " The Partisan "

Charlie . . . I enjoyed the touch of nostalgia threading through Monday night's show. It got me thinking how much the world music slots on the radio are dominated by whatever the latest releases are.

I know how it is – so little airtime and more great music constantly falling through the letterbox. But more golden oldies, please, when you can.

Thanks

I just listened to your show, from this week & really liked it as usual.
I liked Ry Cooder. I like the things I've been able to hear from him. I have never heard that song before.
I like 17 Hippies.
Mbilia


Thanks for the Gorillaz. I've never heard that one before. It was good.

Thanks Roger for picking up on this - I have been trying to find the right balance, aware that for keen record buyers these shows are a chance for people to hear samples of the albums they may have read reviews of in fRoots, Songlines or the mainstream press. But too much new stuff can become a blur, so I will continue to drop in a few reference points from the past.

For some reason Leonard Cohen feels relevant now, although I didn't listen to him at the time that album I'm Your Man was released (in 1988). It's interesting to hear oud as the featured instrument on Everybody Knows - how many other America pop people ever did that?

We've had people asking about this one, so I checked with Proper distribution. It's not out til 4th February, but I'm told it will be worth the wait.

And I'm confident you'd also get people asking about this one ...

Moussa Doumbia " Keleye " out on Okiri.

Track 11 is killer stuff ( imo )

I'd also like to agree with the above concerns about the pressure from new releases. Over at wfmu, DJ Doug Schulkind got that station to introduce an " Old Box " alongside the one which contained the mountain of new releases. Assorted interesting records were left in there for a period by presenters so that their collegues could investigate.


What would I put that box today ?
This : Cuban Trios 1940 -1941 ( Harlequin )
Oh and this : Antonio Machin Volume 2. 1932-1933 ( also on Harlequin )

They're both available in a bargain sale at Sterns by the way, thanks to a load of stuff being returned by that Borders outfit in the US.

I'm currently hooked on a real killer track that's both old and new: 'Djiguiya' by Djelimady Tounkara & L'Orchestra Super Rail Band International – recorded in 1979, it's now available for the first time on CD on the 'allo Bamako CD.

The quality of the whole album is a bit inconsistent, but I think it's worth buying for this 9-minute funk groove alone.

Roger,

Fancy that !

Your current addiction is on the same tiny label that I misspelt earlier - Oriki from France.

I've just had a note to say that it is on a certain DJ's pick of the year too !

Small world.

I've posted my review elsewhere which people can easily find on the R3 messageboards.

I just wanted to thank you for the Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. It did seem to reach a breaking point at a rather convenient time didn't it. It was fantastic.

Thank you for doing your bit during this ongoing AK saga. It's much appreciated.

whs

Often when I get a new customer in the shop I show them the Stern's website; then, if they need further guidance, I show them this site (often with particular reference to the Live in London section) and the various Radio 3 programme sites. Today I showed someone the playlist for this programme & explained that Charlie was sitting in for Andy for two nights. "Ah," he said, with a glimmer of understanding, "Charlie Gillett is quiet and Andy Kershaw is loud".

Dominic,

Ah but a significant % of Andy's loudness is down to the effect that his sterling efforts on behalf of the tobacco industry have had on his vocal chords. Howver I'm pleased to report that AK's quieter side is still intact. While listening to an old mixed tape in my car during a drive to Douglas IoM recently, the gorgeous " M'boré " by Sona Diabaté cropped up ( possibly off a Radio 1 session ) It received a typically enthusiastic welcome from AK.





NB. Others should know that the wonderful Sona Diabaté album " Kankele-Ti ( Popular African Music, PAM401 ) is still fully available. I bought mine in Sterns, not so very long ago.

Would it be inappropriate to point out that one person's nostalgia is another's contextualisation? That was what made Peel so listenable in his latter years as he played tracks from the first half of his broadcasting career to new (and old) listeners.
