The first volume came out around a year ago. It is now being joined by the Chess Northern Soul Volume 2 7-inch box set.

One of two Chess collections coming your way, this one is a new collection of 7x 7-inch single compiled by Ady Croasdell, all with replica UK Chess livery (black/silver and black/gold in a black and yellow label sleeve) and in a presentation box with an 8-page leaflet featuring detailed notes by Mr Croasdell. There’s also a download card if you want digital copies.

As for the music, thats another 14 floor fillers, some of which are making their vinyl debut. Those are My Square by Jackie Ross from 1965, Terry Callier’s You Were Just Foolin’ Me from 1968, an alternative take of Must I Holler by Jamo Thomas and Sugar Pie DeSanto’s Talkin’, Dreamin’, Boastin’.

The full track listings are below. If you want one of the sets, it is released on 19th August and available to pre-order now. Amazon has it up for £74.45.
