Ever fancy flicking through Gilles Peterson’s record collection?
Well, Brownswood Recordings set up a special pop-up record shop in conjunction with Record Store Day to sell Peteron's enforced vinyl cull and records generously donated by celebrity ‘fans’ including Thom Yorke, Erykah Badu, Four Tet, Zane Lowe, Rob Da Bank, Jamie Cullum and more.
I wasn't in the market for those items or the really rare soul, jazz, groove, funk, and African records but manged to pick up enough for a Hectic Hour with the last track being by Rocketnumbernine (Kieran Hebden mix) that was dedicated to the memory of Steve Reid.
As all record sale proceeds went to the Steve Reid Foundation and the next day Gilles did the London Marathon, if you like the mix, consider a donation at GP's Just Giving page http://www.justgiving.com/GillesPeterson/1
