Playlist | Bellowhead choose 11 tracks

Brilliant 11-piece Bellowhead have put together an 11-song playlist of their influences and loves. It’s a great mix, from tracks we listen to all the time at FFS HQ, to gems we’d never heard before. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

  1. Rahsaan Roland Kirk – Pedal Up
  2. Hank Jones & Cheick Tidiane Seck – Tounia Kanibala
  3. Pilot – Auntie Iris
  4. Michel Camilo – Why Not
  5. Tom Waits – Telephone Call From Istanbul
  6. Raphael Saadiq – 100 Yard Dash
  7. Weezer – Buddy Holly
  8. Arvo Part – Credo, from Berlin Mass
  9. Quincy Jones – Ai no Corrida
  10. Ralph Vaughan Williams – Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis
  11. Sly and the Family Stone – I Want To Take You Higher

Here’s a handy Youtube playlist so you can listen/watch all in a one-er.
