Well, I just walked into my local record store and there it was. It's quite
recent (sticker on the front has "MAY 1992" on it, but it existed before then
I think). Apparantly Kevin Godley thought up the idea of going around the
world and gettin musicians to add bits to a tape until they had an entire
recording. Artists include:
Afrika Bambaataa, Laurie Anderson, Avelha Guarda Da Portela, Bagamoya
Players, Cedric, The Chieftains, Clannad, Johnny Clegg & Savuka, Cy Curnin,
Terence Trent D'Arby, Dred, Marc Ducret, Peter Gabriel, Bob Geldof, ****DAVE
GILMOUR****, Egberto Gismonti, Kevin Godley, Eddie Grant, The Great Muungano
Cultral Troupe, Richard Guilliano, The Gypsy Kings, Rupert Hine, Chrissie
Hynde, Howard Jones, Salif Keita, The Kodo Drummers, Helen Labarriere,
Leningrad Symphony Orchestra, Ray Lema, Roger Ludvigsen, Maria McKee,
Milton Freedom, Nu Sounds, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Remmy Ongala & The
Super Matimila Orchestra, Geoffrey Oryema, Hermetto Pascoal, Penguin
Cafe Orchestra, Mari Boine Persen, Courtney Pine, Hossam Ramzy, Enrico Rava,
Lou Reed, Robbie Robertson, Michaeal Rose & Junior, Ryuichi Sakamoto,
Clara Sandroni, Shakespear's Sister, Steve Stevens, Dave Stewart and the
Spiritual Cowboys, Sting, Joe Strummer, Steven Van Zandt, Suzanne Vega,

(phew!). It's in the form of a giant mega-mix, with piece fading into piece
often with many overdubs of vastly different things at the same time. The
piece I'm listening to at the moment sounds like Clannad, with african,
possibly middle-eastern backing vocals, and Peter Gabriel's vocals, no it's
faded into another female singer. Now the main singer is, um, non-western
(can't place the language).

Mostly it's good, and includes some utterly classic bits (e.g. Laurie
Anderson). Some of it sucks though. Some of the keyboard work is *VERY*
Floydian (SOYCD type).
