Exclusive Blend Volume 2 / Various
(Jewel Case Packaging)
2007 reissue of this collection of rare music library recordings. Volume 2 sees Blow Up's founder and DJ Paul Tunkin entering the vaults of de Wolfe, Amphonic and again KPM. As with a bulk of Exclusive Blend 1, many of these tracks were receiving their first commercial airing on this album's release. The album also introduced James Clarke's Wild Elephants to the world, which was subsequently picked up by Gap and used on the 1999 'Khaki a Go-Go' worldwide campaign. As a thank-you from the writer it was re-titled 'Blow Up A-Go-Go' and became the title track for the successful V2 / Blow Up compilation 'Blow Up A-Go-Go! Dancefloor Classics from the Legendary Blow Up Club'. This album includes tracks from many great music library theme writers including Keith Mansfield, Alan Hawkshaw and Syd Dale, and includes the Alan Moorhouse Hammond heavy classic "Soul Skimmer" and the spaced out tribal funk of Nick Ingman's "Tripwire".
