Much anticipated 2nd singles comp from Truth & Soul - Volume 1 never saw release on vinyl, so this deluxe 2xLP covers the ground from TS-001 to TS-018, which happens to include a whole lot of sick tunes. All the T&S faves are here, from vintage reissues like Tyrone Ashley ("Just A Little While Longer") and Black Velvet ("Is It Me You Really Love") to current champs like El Michels Affair ("C.R.E.A.M."), Bronx River Pkwy ("Deixa Pra La") and Lee Fields ("My World"). Also includes Timothy McNealy's killer Al Green cover "I'm Glad You're Mine," plus four previously unreleased tracks from El Michels Affair, The Fabulous Three, Funky Music Machine and The Evil D's which aren't available on the CD version. This label is pumping out some of the funkiest, most soulful music around today - pay attention! Comes in an embossed sleeve with artwork by Rostarr. 27 big tracks total. Recommended.
