Volume one was one of our favourite comps ever- this is another genius set capturing a decade when african-american music was exploring myriad new directions against the backdrop of unprecedented social change.

Prepare to go on a journey for heart, body and brain that melds the classic with the obscure to mesmerizing and surprising effect. It’s the work of meticulous curators who have imagined a place where, for example, the disintegration of mc5’s ‘starship’ and the beatific incantations of sonny sharrock can coexist in a pure celebration of sound. and if you can stop having fun for just one second, there is the sense that one of the most compelling cultural narratives of the 20th century is unfurling before your ears. The major players include john coltrane, the temptations, isaac hayes, chairmen of the board, sarah webster fabio, and the byrds. An album everyone should own!
