Gilles Peterson - Brownswood Bubblers 3

Gilles Peterson has maybe the best job in the world. He's a British DJ with the most popular show on BBC radio, and a record collection so large, he's bought a whole house to store it, which he calls Brownswood. He's in demand around the world for his distinct musical taste, based on 60's and 70's soul music, and has helped launch artists like Jamiroquai, Gang Starr, Lupe Fiasco, and Roots Manuva. That throwback musical sense is showcased here in this phenomenal collection of soul and jazz from bands I've never heard particular, "Where Would You Be" is some sublime Sam Cooke-like shit. Why don't we have this kind of dude in America?
