Real World 25
3 CDs, 38 tracks trace the rich and diverse history of one of the major 'world music' labels.
From the polyphonic singing of Sardinia to the gospel music of Alabama; from modern Indo vocals experiments to the women of Finland, from traditional Tanzanian harps to global fusions fostered by Real World's studio encounters, this collection will keep you fascinated for many, many hours.

The set is a beautifully packaged clam shell box with 3 CD wallets, 28 page booklet containing the story of 25 Years of Real World Records, and a collection of Real World Tales with contributions from musicians, producers, designer and managers.

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
