In issue 14 we look at the exciting things afoot at the Real World. We look at the release of the Rabbit Proof Fence soundtrack, 'Long Walk Home', the imminent release of PG's 'Up' and therefore preparations for a long awaited tour.

We're also celebrating 20 years of WOMAD (Already!). With a packed release schedule on RW Records to cap it all, it's been difficult to fit everything we wanteed to tell you about this issue.

We have features on the new releases from Misty In Roots and Joseph Arthur and previews in Records News to keep you informed about the myriad of other releases to look forward to. Andy Morgan takes a look at WOMAD from it's inception 20 years ago and Annie Mentor keeps up up to date on the valuable work of WOMAD Foundation now.
