2. The Best Of Good Love Gone - 24-Carat Gold from the Numero issue of previously unreleased material
3. Roforofo Fight - Gilles Peterson's Havana Cultura Feat. Mayra Caridad Valdes in which the Fela standard gets the Egrem house treatment via Brownwood
4. Pray For Rain (feat. Tunde Adebimpe) - Massive Attack, a big collaboration and a gentle song
5. Fine - yU from the Brownswood Bubblers 4 compilation all cut and pasted
6. Ha Dvash - Fool's Gold, a hybrid Hebrew Afro-blues track rooted in the Sahara
7. Safari Salvaje - Los Rápidos from the wonderful second volume of Cuban funk Si Para Usted Vol. 2: The Funky Beats Of Revolutionary Cuba
8. Meu Mundo - Otto, from the 2009 album Certa Manhã Acordei de Sonhos Intranquilos - enchanting as always from Recife in Brazil with blends of regional rhythm, rock and electronica

14. The Rider - Nick Cave & Warren Ellis soundtrack sounds from the Aussie riders

16. It's A Dream - Little Ed one of the many outstanding tracks on the Numero Light on the South Side compilation of bluesy funk from Chicago
17. Not Tomorrow - Living Colour 2009 saw a focussed album from Vernon Reid's Living Colour and this is just one of them
18. Ebo Lala w/ Seifu Yohannes - Mulatu Astatke at last the much anticipated Mulatu retrospective sees the light of day
