Great new compilation of rare Miami funk and soul from the ever-excellent Numero label! After a box of 'lost' Deep City master tapes turned up in January of 2007, the Numero label were faced with an idea both fascinating and ugly: sequel. Instead of rehashing old news, The Outskirts of Deep City colours in the spaces left open by its predecessor. In addition to seven previously unissued tracks Numero have added related gems from the Solid Soul, Sun Cut, Reedsville, Lloyd, and Concho labels. Artists include Betty Wright, Helene Smith, Clarence Reid, James Knight and the Butlers, Snoopy Dean, the Rollers, Frank Williams & The Rocketeers, Lynn Williams, Perk Badger, and the Rising Sun!
