The CD and digital versions of The Midlands Roots Explosion: Volume Two is now available via Reggae Archive Records.
Following the release of The Midlands Roots Explosion: Volume One last year an even stronger selection of tracks has emerged.
Volume two starts off in exactly the same way as its predecessor with Handsworth's biggest musical exports, STEEL PULSE and “Bun Dem”, originally released in 1977 on the Tempus label and produced by the legendary DENNIS BOVELL.
Reggae Archive Records is set to release The Midlands Roots Explosion Volume Two on 20 May.
The album will be available on double vinyl in a luxurious gatefold sleeve, CD and digital download.
The first volume was released last year and saw the culmination of many years work spent tracking down artists and tapes to shine a light on one of England's greatest, yet most overlooked musical scenes.
Reggae Archive Records is shining the spotlight on some of Birmingham’s reggae acts with the release of The Midlands Roots Explosion Volume One later this summer.
The album will be released on 29 June, available on high quality double vinyl in a deluxe gatefold sleeve, on CD and as a digital download.
The new record is the first in a series of compilations that hope to showcase some of the unreleased, forgotten and barely known musical gems from what was such a vibrant scene.
