16 obscure but brilliant Disco, Modern Soul and Boogie grooves of which the majority have not been compiled anywhere else. The album begins with Cirt Gill's disco bomb Put The Music In Your Ear, a perfect tune to open this second Volume. Tony Swamy, originally from Georgetown, Guyana, South America, recorded his one and only 45 in 1978. German saxophonist / band leader Ambros 'Mabusso' Seelos is best known for his 1960s / 70s funk outings. In Orbit is an insanely groovy disco cut and with this compilation celebrates its debut on vinyl! The Gangbusters unreleased disco banger remained in the can for 38(!) years until Tramp put it out on proper 45rpm single (on clear wax!) in 2018. The contribution of The Mabin Brothers Band is quite obscure as is Love Me by Mr. Maurice, while Maxwell is best known for his funk classic Radiation Funk. Meltdown was recorded around the same time but remained unreleased. Harry Hann recorded Bump and Run in 1977 when The Bump was one of the hottest dances around. Tyree Glenn Jr. is no new name for the educated Tramp musicologist (check out Can You Feel It? Vol. 1 and the two recently released 7" reissues Jealous Love and Superbad). Jeremy Power's Ombre De Plaisir is sung in french, and what a "magnifique" Boogie-Funk track it is! Intercession was recorded in 1984 and is also a very fine midtempo Boogie track. Cecil Lyde is best known for his super rare, self-produced Stone Free album from which we pulled Money's Funny. The album finishes with four mellow tracks. First of all we have the wonderful Dear Wendy, followed by the equally great Lover's Fantasy. Grayson Street delivers the uplifting Medicine Man which has a similar positive vibe as the final choice for CYFI 2 by The Fantastic Shakers, Carolina's premier beach music combo. The Wrong Side Of Me with its catchy almost pop-ish arrangement closes out the set perfectly.
