"This extremely impressive compilation is an acknowledgement and celebration of Melbourne's vibrant and vital soul music community. Presented by two of the city's leading champions and proponents of all things soulful (Northside Records' and Triple R's Chris Gill and The Bamboo's Lance Ferguson) the eighteen track collection showcases some key local jazz, funk, R&B and modern beat-based outfits. Recent releases from artists such as Chet Faker and Kylie Auldist are highlighted, and featured alongside rare and unreleased songs from The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra and new spiritual jazz group Menagerie." That's right! 18 hand-picked tunes (inc. 4 previously-unreleased exclusives) from the cream of the Melbourne soul scene. Featuring THE BAMBOOS, SASKWATCH, THE CACTUS CHANNEL, KYLIE AULDIST, ELECTRIC EMPIRE, CLAIRY BROWNE & THE BANGIN' RACKETTES, HIATUS KAIYOTE, AKOLOTL, COOKIN' ON 3 BURNERS & more.
