Few possess the musical knowledge and crate-digging skills of LoveVinyl's Zaf, whose 2012 collection of private-press disco, funk and boogie, Private Wax, was arguably one of the best compilations of recent years. Here, he returns to the world of ultra-rare records - specifically, those pressed in tiny quantities and often distributed by the artists' themselves - for a belated follow-up. As you'd expect, highlights come thick and fast, from the urgent, 12-minute disco-soul hustle of Lou Johnson's "Keep That Fire Burning", and the synth-driven soul sweetness of Englightenment's "Burning Flame", to the sparkling electrofunk brilliance of Karizma's "Will You Dance With Me", and the blue-eyed disco bliss of True Feelings' clavinet-laden groover "Love Me, Love Me". It is, though, all pretty darn tasty.
