Is the "London' one anything linked with reggae? A vol. 2 to the Unity copmpilation maybe? that would be killer.

I LOVE Honest Jons I mean. They've released albums such as KTW Dub, Black Slavery Days, Light of Saba, Wareika Hill Sounds EP and so on ... all of them are classics!

The first "London Is The Place For Me" volume was early calypso music made in Britain, so presumably the second volume will be more of the same (perhaps from a later time period?).
What about the half that's never been told?

SLS...not sure I checked these release notes whilst trawling the dusty groove website. The lost Tunde Williams LP was put out by HJs earlier this year. I expect its going to be a 70s afrobeat journey.....but I hear SOundway are preparing a new Mulatu LP....
