Announcing our Record Store Day 2018 release, Soul Diesel Vol. 2, which picks up where the first strain left off, taking you further into the smoldering hot soul-jazz soundscape with long out of print sides from Billy Butler, Melvin Sparks, Idris Muhammad, Merl Saunders, Cal Tjader, and more.
This second volume of searing grooves features audio remastered from the original analog tapes and pressed on 180-gram hot orange opaque swirl vinyl. Acclaimed fine artist, Danielle Garza (@ellierex) contributed original, psychedelic paint-marbling to complete the trip.
