Under The Influence Vol.2 compiled by Paul Phillips [Z Records]

Under the Influence vol 2

My compilation CD Under The Influence Vol.2 for Z Records features some of my favourite lesser known Disco, Boogie and Soul tracks from the 70s and 80s that for one reason or another went under the radar at the time of release.

The vast majority of these releases went unnoticed other than in some cases exposure in their local area of release via local radio airplay and sales which in some cases would lead to a minor local hit.

The album is available on double CD, gatefold vinyl and download.
