So called "World" music has bored me to tears more often than not. Especially the kind featuring plaintive voices backed with acoustic instruments in weird rhythm patterns that I cant relate to. Just like most Jazz. BOOOOOOOOOOORing.
My favorite non reggae styles are Bob Dylan, Fela, King Sunny Ade, Franco, Rochereau, Kassav, early 80's boogie funk, some hip hop.
I believe I did Richard but that was a while ago - I'll have to check it out again now that everything is at my finger tips with the world of Rdio! What made you ask? That's an old thread and when I saw Grumpy's name I thought woah! Blast from the past.
Recently picked up a superb LP copy of Sunny Ade's Juju Music for $5 which is nice.
Was in Kelowna ona sales trip last week and stumbled across Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros live double album at a great price (record store day release) haven't listened to it yet.
Ha ha, I don't think I'd have the courage to review my posts! By the way, that live album from Strummer/Mescaleros is sensational. Can't have too many versions of White Man In Hammersmith Palais obviously, but there's even a version of White Riot. I guess Mick Jones joined him on stage for some of the numbers. Mark T
