* Compiled by DJ Supreme La Rock * All tracks re-mastered * 2xLP housed in deluxe Stoughton "Tip-On" gatefold jackets * New liner notes by Jonathan Zwickel with band interviews and rare archive photos In 2004, the first volume of "Wheedle's Groove" shone a light on the formerly unheralded soul scene in 1960s and 70s Seattle, followed by a new album in 2008, and then an award winning feature-length documentary film.

The on-going "Wheedle's Groove" series continues to present a vast chapter of the city's musical heritage that has little to do with long-haired rock dudes with guitars.

No - in the world of "Wheedle's Groove", platform shoes and pimp hats were the order of the day.

But unlike Volume I, Seattle's soul scene did not stop in 1975. A new volume, "Wheedle's Groove Vol.

II", documents the period from 1972 to 1987, when funk was superseded by disco and modern soul.

Compiled and sequenced by Seattle's DJ Supreme La Rock, this 18-track compilation will also introduce you to the long-forgotten blue-eyed soul boy Don Brown ("Don't Lose Your Love') and frustrated talents Push, overlooked for record deals on account of singer "Big Joe" Erickson's larger-than-life heft ("You Turn Me On').

There's Frederick Robinson III and his gospel-funk protest tune "Love One Another', Tony Benton of Teleclere being Seattle's answer to Prince ("Steal Your Love') and Seattle Mariners baseball star Lenny Randle recording a tribute to their infamous stadium.

Witness Septimus blends a live drummer with a Roland drum machine and cuts "Here I Go Again" on a disco-friendly 12" single.

Robbie Hill's Family Affair turn in the soul-jazz gem "Don't Give Up' and Cold, Bold & Together present the undeniable vocal beauty of 'Let's Backtrack.'
