Gilles Peterson // Must Have Album // #181
March 6, 2015
Each week, we will be sharing the top 200 Albums that every Gilles Peterson fan should have. The album this week is Round Trip by Light of the World.
This substantial jazz/funk/soul album was released on Ensign Records in 1980, and includes a noteworthy cover of Bob Marley’s I Shot the Sheriff. Light of the World, the early roots of Beggar and co. and Incognito were important predecessors of the British jazz/funk movement. Round Trip is a trouble free listen, which encapsulates early 80′s dance music in Britain, a sound which will most likely be familiar to many of you!
