  • Description

    With this volume we celebrate 20 years since Fading Yellow Volume 1 CD - Fading Yellow created a genre all of its own and praised by many including Bob Stanley.

    "It's twenty years since I walked into a record shop in Stockholm and heard Disraeli's mournful, gently thunderous What Will The New Day Bring. I asked the owner what he was playing and he told me it was Fading Yellow Volume 2. He played snatches of Volume one. I bought both on the spot. Here was a new subset of music which I had always loved, without thinking of it as a subset. Fading Yellow magically bound the softer end of psych with singer-songwriters and beat groups; what they had in common - aside from woodwinds, harpsichord and cellos - was minor chords. The heart of Fading Yellow is rarely sad but always melancholy. Twenty volumes in and it still sounds magical."

    - Bob Stanley 2022.

    * The usual high quality 45's musically, this time from the USA and, as always, all the tracks doing their first entrance on any compilation.

    * Groups including Magic Ring, Second Helping, The Mother Love, Luv Birds, The News etc.

    * All late 60's popsike and other delights. Don't miss out on this wonderful volume.
