Gatefold double LP version. Following the phenomenal success of Italo House (ZEDD 031CD/LP/X-LP) and Remixed With Love (ZEDD 030CD/LP/X-LP), Z Records returns with another humdinger of a compilation to start off 2015. Supafunkanova Vol. 2 was compiled by Joey Negro and Sean P, who together have curated many previous albums including Disco (Not Disco), Destination: Boogie (ZEDD 009CD/LP), and the ever popular Soul of Disco series (ZEDD 007CD/010CD/022CD). The dynamic duo continues to dig deep, compiling high quality albums filled with lesser known disco and boogie. As the title suggests, Supafunkanova focuses on the funkier end of the '70s and '80s, showcasing some of the bumpier grooves recorded in the disco era when even James Brown had to take notice of the Saturday Night Fever (1977)-inspired disco explosion. It will come as no surprise to hear some particularly hard to find gems have been unearthed here, and ones that aren't just rare but genuinely merit being reissued. The first installment was released back in 2007, and the duo has been working Vol. 2 for some time. It takes a while to finish these albums -- tracking down the owners of these musical gems, finding the right image for the sleeve -- but it's finally come together, and its release coincides with the repackaged reissue of Supafunkanova Vol. 1, available on double CD and double LP (ZEDD 012CD/LP). Once again Z Records gives outstanding value with ten tracks on the double LP version. Highlights include Airplay's boogie synth-infused "Drive Me Insane" and the "White Horse"-ish "Cool Out" by Magnum Force. Things get more DC go-go style on Stimulus's "Super Stimulus," ex Skull Snaps member Sam Culleydelivers the up-tempo jazz funk track "Walk," and the soulful, Teena Marie-ish "Sound Reason" by Splash gets an exclusive Joey Negro edit. Also includes tracks by The Blue Denim Band, The Sunburst Band, Star Quality & Class, Brenda Harris, and Nice and Tight Band.
