Editorial Reviews

Two CD set. On BBC Live Sessions, radio DJ Gilles Peterson showcases an eclectic roster of live artist tracks from his Radio 1 show, including Beck's melancholy 'Round the Bend' and Beth Gibbons' after-hours, Lady Day-flavored 'Romance.' Peterson's guest roster favors low-key Soul-Jazz like Roisin Murphy's 'Sow Into You' or Amp Fiddler's 'I'm Doin' Fine,' with frequent forays into Hip Hop territory like Common's 'The Corner.' But he also refreshingly blends experimentalists like Bjork, whose reworking of 'Who Is It,' from her Medulla album, is a highlight, and contemporary Jazz, in the shape of the Heritage Orchestra's 'Telescopic,' into his wide-ranging mix. 27 tracks. 2006.

I stumbled upon this artist from listening to an internet radio site. I first heard a couple of this song on the site and fell in love. However, the deal breaker was when I heard Frontin, by Jamim Cullum, however this was originally preformed by the Neptune's... This song is the bomb. After listen to the entire cd I feel in love with I'm doin fine by Amp.

Overall, this cd is a true treasure. If you want to be the envy of all of your friends, buy this CD.. You won't be disappointed. I'm at a point in my life where I'm looking for new and unique sounds and trust this is the album. The first cd is more like light rock, and punk. Whereas the second cd is more neo-soul...

Trust and believe you won't be disappointed.

I've owned this CD for about six months now, and the more I listen the better I like it. In fact is has become one of my favorites. It is an eclectic compilation of live sets taken from Giles' radio program. If you are familiar Giles' stuff you know that he has an ear for the brilliant, yet obscure - artists, and tracks, that is. I mean he has Beck, Bjork, and the Roots, just to name a few, on this collection, along with a bunch of artists I've never heard of! Let's just say he ranges far and wide with this one.
IMHO a success. I'm looking forward to the next "Sessions".

Seriously, I hated that I had to wait but coming from over the pond, I cannot complain! Great quality. Everything that was promised was delivered. I am very serious about my albums and CDs as well as tapes and other vintage forms of media....I was pleased with my copy of this record.
