Do we need to write a blurb piece about Gilles Peterson? Really...? No, we don't. However, we would like to say he compiled this Top 5 exclusively for issue #1 of the Soultearoa Shakedown. Niceness. Thanks Gilles.
Issue #2 of the 'zine will be available for FREE at the next NZ Soul All Dayer event - also FREE, from midday til midnight, Saturday 17 August, at the Britomart Country Club.
