As always there were a lot of quality releases to choose from on Record Store Day this year.
The pick of the bunch for us was Soul Slabs Volume 2 from Colemine Records. Following on from Volume 1 which was released in 2017. This latest instalment features 27 tracks from the Colemine Records catalogue. We’ve been playing many of the tracks from this 3 album boxset on the Music for Modern Living Radio Show over the past few months. So it’s good to have them all collated together along with some new tunes to us.
A full tracklisting is below but some of the standout tracks include modern day classics by Kelly Finnigan, The Flying Stars of Brooklyn NY, Ikebe Shakedown, Orgone, Durand Jones and The Indications, Jr Thomas and The Volacones, Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio, Soul Scratch, Ben Piriani and more.
If you didn’t manage to pick up a copy on the day make sure you head on down to you local Record Store an see if they have any left. You won’t be disappointed!
