V/A - Volume Two (UK CD & Book / 1991)



It seems as if there is a strong response to these compilations. Thanks for all your feedback Here's the next in the series.

I've collected 16 Volumes of these specific CD / Book releases, only find out there are 17 and a slue of others that follow in line with the 'Volume' name. I actually have others too. This was quite a UK force back when they were released and it was a bit pricey. Now you can get most of them for under $10. I always enjoyed the 'exclusive' mixes, remixes and new tracks.

Rhythmatic - Beyond The Bleep (UK Import CDS / 1991)




I bought this back in 1991 because I was all about anything that came out of the UK label Network. Rhythmatic was no exception and actually was one of my favourite ensembles at the time. It was a bit frustrating to see that this CDS was really only a promotional tool for an upcoming release. That being said, the two tracks are exceptional, with one being unique to this release.


01) Nu-Groove 4:38
02) Exclusive Splat Sample Mix (features 'Wind Me Up' & 'Nu-Groove') 10:54

V/A - Twin Tone Catalog Sampler (More Hits From Mid America) (Promo CD / 1992)




Every now and then, you have to enjoy a random various artists compilation / sampler promo! This one hails from the label Twin Tone based out of Minneapolis, MN. A lovely one at that with some quality tracks from bands gone by and some that still work it out! BTW, this was another good & cheap find from a local used music store. All art is included.

King - Steps In Time (CD [1985] / 1994 Expanded Re-Release)




Struck it rich again at the local Goodwill! This is the 1994 Oglio Records Expanded Re-Release (released on 7/19/94) of the classic 1985 original. It generally sells for about $6-12, but I got my (VG) copy for $0.99...and a 5% frequent shopper discount! Years ago this was fetching $30+ on eBay and Amazon,  but back in 2010 Cherry Red Records (UK) remastered and re-released it, so prices are moderate for a used copy these days. BTW, reselling mine on eBay soon! Look under the seller (DJRAF2003) to bid on this original re-release.

This posting and many others have used his stock as source material. I've included all the art work from both the US and Mexican release...and...I added the dicogs photos of the UK release.

So, I've been trying to get back on track with postings. I've seen all your great comments in the past few weeks and I will try to get at the requests that have been coming in. These next few posts go back to requests from sevearl months ago, so bear with me as I flip-flop all over the place within regards to musical genres. Either way, it's all good in my opinion. My musical tastes are everywhere and if you follow (or try to follow) this site, then I'm certain you're flavour is the same. Thanks to all who like the FB page and who post comments here!

Concrete Blonde - Joey (UK CDS / 1990)




01) Joey 4:08
02) I Want You 3:31
03) I Don't Need A Hero 4:25

Bonus

04) The Beast 4:23





I recently picked this CDS up on the cheap. The kicker is that the track listing on the art didn't match the CD. This art (from my orig.) shows 'I Don't Need A Hero' as track three. The CD shows the same, but the track actually is 'The Beast'. All art is from my original. All the tracks, other than 'The Beast' are from the 2010 Deluxe Remaster of the 1990 'Bloodletting' release.
