The World of Travel

A simply excellent LP this one  released in 1973 – an age before Sublime Frequencies performed the same (perhaps more detailed) crate digging – an audio snap-shot of times gone and places I personally wish to explore more …    I must confess to being addicted to these long-forgotten recordings, preserved in long forgotten slabs of wax – and this one in particular satisfies more than most ..  everything on here is good – but the track ‘Music from Iraq’ with Abdul-Karim Al Azawi playing the Tabl to very fine effect, is stunning – a snippit to drop mid-dubstep set – and if I believed in the concept – a staple-sample moment if ever there was one …!

This KPM library record from 1984 might not be of the finest vintage or the most stylistically desirable (it’s a comprehensive series of 146 short music cues, composed by Dick Walter) but it does at least prove that library albums can still be found out there in charity shop land.
