    label: Blow Up

    Long due for a reissue, Volume 2 has been unavailable for several years fetching up to £100 on eBay! It has received much international recognition with DJs, collectors and plain old music lovers alike, introducing many to the twilight world of the unknown session man just doing his thang. Like its predecessor this album has gained a loyal cult following and was continually repressed after its original release. It remains a groundbreaking introduction to the world of the music library, the second in a series reflecting the diverse music that can be heard at London's legendary Blow Up club. “More excellent stuff from the Blow Up label.” - Time Out. “18 tracks of cool, punchy rarities. Dance music for Get Carter fans.” - Musik. “Hipper-than-hip selection of TV/film music from Blow Up” - Uncut. “More fantastic jazz oddities” - Loaded. Composer James Clarke says: "What [Paul Tunkin] has done is to mine a vein of commercial music that no one else has done. No one thought that library music, on its own, would have a commercial appeal. Paul thought that it would – and how right he was! It is an Aladdin’s cave of period treasures – entirely unique as genre, but musically very rich indeed." Track listing: 1. Blow Up A-Go-Go (pka Wild Elephants) James Clarke 2.
