London Is The Place For Me 1 & 2


Double pack re-issue of the 1st two acclaimed London Is The Place For Me compilations. Comes in custom packaging. 'an exquisitely poignant, evocative record', Daily Telegraph 'wonderful... album of the year', Sunday Times 'simply a classic album. Music by the people, for the people,' The Voice. '... a witty and joyous testament to the creative power of popular culture and a document of more innocent times. It constitutes one of the best starting points for that rich, unfinished history of the black British diaspora and its intricate interweaving with British life that remains to be written' (Stuart Hall, The Guardian). '... Not only is it a momentous record of real historical significance, but it comes in a finely produced sleeve with evocative photographs, background notes and recording details that bring the performances on the disc to life even more... a unique and marvellous compilation that lays open a whole era' (Chris Searle, Morning Star). 'superlative', Mojo 'sensational', The Observer '*****' The Times, Metro 'sheer joy from start to finish', Sunday Telegraph
