I especially like the Real World-sampler albums by "Various Artists" with different sounds, styles, rhythms artists and - especially very cool collaborations by musicians from all over the globe.
Maybe we can collect some special albums here - also a recommendation to others. Maybe You also saw them live.
North America, South America, Asia 1, Asia 2, Europe, Oceania, Carribean, Africa and the Indian Subcontinent - all become one at the Real World.

Geoffrey Oryema 2 first albums were released on Real World and they are great.
I also enjoy listening to "Arcane" and "Plus from Us".

Any samplers or compilations were incredible. I managed to somehow save I Real World Notes CD but all other ones have disappeared, except fopr Big Blue Ball.
When I had a large RW CD collection ages ago, my favorite was "Dead Men Don't Smoke Marijuana", which was the only CD done by that African gentleman as he died during a WOMAD gig soon after recording.
I also enjoyed Sheila Chandra, Geoffrey Oryema, Afro Celt Sound System and a Tibetan woman who's name suddenly escapes me.

there are too many excellent albums - one of my favourites are:
"TRISAN" - a very cool project recorded during the 1st Real World Recording Week in 1991 - featuring Guo Yue (China) on the flute, Joji Hirota (Japan) on percussion and Pol Brennan (Ireland, an ex-member of the band "Clannad").
Great Voices are:
Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan (Pakistan)
Sheila Chandra (India/ UK)
Iarla O`Lionaird) (Ireland, "Afro Celt Sound System")
. . .and for Rraven:
Yungchen Lamo from Tibet :-]

As Cimber says - alsmost too many great albums to name.
Would love to hear the one Rraven mentions. . .
I tend to hear BBB a lot as it appears on my MP3 all the time - I think my shuffle likes it! and of course Passion and SMB are 2 favourites.
At the moment I have Justin and Juldeh's 'Trance Sessions' on - soulful and mesmerising stuff.
Others not yet mentioned:-
Talented, inspiring artists

AHH! That's her! Cheers, Cimber.
Also, Nusret Fateh Ali Khan (produced by Michael Brook) "Night Song"
Guo Ye "Music, Food & Love"
Hassan Hakmoun "Trance"
And it was SE Rogie who did "Dead Men Don't Smoke Marijuana."

here are some 24 uploads with clips by Real World Records on youtube:
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
I do like early recordings by:
Terem Quartet (Russia)
Marie Boine (Samiland/Scandinavia)
Ayub Ogada (Kenia)
Papa Wemba (Congo)
Remmy Ongala (Tansania)
U. Srinivas (India)
Toto la Momposina (Columbia)
Holmes Brothers (USA)
Real World - it says that on SMB and its singles.
OK, I love poor old Nusrat as well.
His voice was a miracle, like PG is.
Other RW artists: hic sunt leones. I tried. It's not my thing.

Cheers, Caste. The print is so small on my SMB insert that I can't read it (ulp.) All I remember was in earlier CDs like "Passion", PG was listed as "appearing courtesy of Virgin Records/Geffen Records".
