I have just found out that the West Coast label Love N'Haight are to issue their 50th album in April which will be Bay Area Funk Volume 2. It looks another goodie and will sit nicely along side Volume 1 which was issued in 2003.
Bay Area funk expert Justin Torres has once again written the sleevenotes which if they are anything like Volume 1 then we are in for a treat with information based on interviews with the artists and archive photos.
You can check out the full tracklisting at Ubiquity Records.
One of the 45's included on the compilation is the Relatives "Lenient With My Love" on Archway. This is a 45 I picked up from a Norfolk dealer back in the 70's and have always loved. The offbeat groove always captured my attention with its heavy bass runs. Hopefully, we will now be able to find something out about the group.
