Info for Woodstock Two

After the multi-platinum success of Music from the Original Soundtrack and More: Woodstock that accompanied Michael Wadleigh's documentary film Woodstock (two million copies sold and it spent four consecutive weeks at the top of the Billboard charts, and even a Top 20 spot on its R&B chart!), Woodstock Two was inevitable as a sequel. Released as a double LP in 1971 with more stills from the film -- though none of the music here was included -- this set featured many of the same artists who'd appeared on the first volume, with two additions: Mountain, and Melanie. If anything, this set, more concise and more focused, is a better bet than its predecessor. Disc one is a stunner on more than one level. First, there are three tracks by Jimi Hendrix and his expanded lineup after breaking up the Experience (adding guitarist Larry Lee), and a trio of percussionists along with Mitch Mitchell and bassist Billy Cox. There's the killer 'Jam Back at the House,' which rolls in riffs and an instrumental array of tunes from his catalog including 'Rainy Day Dream Away'; there's a killer take on 'Izabella' that's raggedy but full of killer improvisation -- check the interaction between Cox and Mitchell -- and 'Get My Heart Back Together,' also known as 'Hear My Train A'Comin'.' These 20 minutes of music make it worth the purchase of this collection if you don't already possess the Jimi Hendrix Live at Woodstock disc.

Jefferson Airplane is also here with an extra 12 minutes of music. Judging by this contribution and the inclusion of 'Volunteers,' on volume 1, this ranks as one of their greatest live sets ever issued. They begin 'Saturday Afternoon/Won't You Try' with a medley of tunes from After Bathing at Baxter's, issued early on in their career. The vocal performances by Marty Balin, Grace Slick, and Paul Kantner are simply stellar, but Jorma Kaukonen's guitar as a guiding light also really shines here, and it screams on their other selection, 'Eskimo Blue Day,' from the Volunteers album, even if its basic structure aped Bob Dylan's 'All Along the Watchtower.' Disc one ends with the Butterfield Blues Band redeeming themselves with Little Walter's 'Everything's Gonna Be Alright,' after the indulgent debacle of 'Love March' on volume one.

Disc Two features a trio of fine cuts by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young including 'Marrakesh Express,' and a pair from Mountain: the stellar rocker 'Blood of the Sun,' and the more pastoral 'Theme from an Imaginary Western.' Canned Heat's 13-minute 'Woodstock Boogie' is a bit monotonous, but it's a blast all the same. The tracks by Melanie and Joan Baez included here add nothing to this set and should have been left off in favor of some other artists who weren't included on either volume, but that's personal preference. The Rhino edition of Woodstock Two contains new liner notes by Gene Sculatti, new photos, and completely remastered sound that's a grand improvement on any CD edition released thus far.

Recorded in August 15–18, 1969 Produced by Glyn Johns

Digitally remastered

A compilation dedicated to funk and pre – zouk period, which has never been documented before. It is compilated by specialists of the genre: Julien Achard (Digger's Digest) and Nicolas SKLIRIS (ex-Superfly Records).

After the success of Kouté Jazz, Heavenly Sweetness comes back with a dancefloor but not jazz compilation, enough to move your feet at through the whole summer ! 13 disco, boogie and Zouk tracks recorded in the 80’s in the West Indies.

The advantage of this selection is precisely that it reveals a broader spectrum than the zouk music style that are badly defined. Most of the tracks, were not much broadcasted even if interpreted by some big names in Caribbean music (Pierre-Edouard Decimus / Patrick St. Eloi / Eddy La Viny). They were too fast classified as Zouk. These Tracks reveal this will of singularity, this merger between traditional and other rhythms genres (funk, disco, afro-beat, Latin Brazilian ...), with the addition of new instruments such as synthesizers and drums machine in the creative process.

In many zouk’s albums, this period often included one or even several, tracks that were qualified as "proto-zouk" and "funky-zouk" or the "boogie-zouk" to emphasize the fusion of genres . But these tracks have remained unknown to the general public because only the "hits" were played on the radio, dance floors (the famous "tan" or “zouk”), clubs and bus.

This album contains no booklet.
