Eclectic Mainline – 11th January 2012

Folk like myself, Simon Ashberry and Phil Cope have a proclivity for making lists when it comes to music we like.  If I were to make a list of my favourite compilations when the sun sets on 2012 for the final time, then World Routes On The Road would surely be pretty high on that list.  It’s a 2xCD set comprising tunes recorded round the world by the BBC Radio 3 team that produce the World Routes show.  I played a couple of tunes from it tonight, and will continue to do so for the next few weeks.  Here is a sample of what it contains:

    Finally got the HMHB then , Alb. I know it’s heresy but it’s not as good as CSI Ambleside, is it? Still they are national treasures and in a sane world Nigel would be poet laureate
