The 17 North Parade subsidiary has already been home lately to some very crucial re-releases for VP Records, but none of these in my opinion can top the 4CD-boxes with George Phang's productions for his own Powerhouse label. For a short introduction of George Phang, his Power House label and Phang's collaboration with Sly & Robbie do check the review of "George Phang ~ Power House Selector's Choice Vol.1". I already pointed out in that review that the only way to do justice to these releases in a review would be by offering soundsamples of all the tunes. As that's not possible I'll just recommend this second 4CD-box with its nice cover and booklet as much as the "Volume 1" by telling you that "George Phang ~ Power House Selector's Choice Vol.2" offers great one-off recordings for George Phang by Winston Hussey, Gregory Isaacs, Conroy Smith, Al Campbell, Admiral Bailey, Sanchez, Tinga Stewart & Tiger and Cutty Ranks.

And more wonderful tunes by the artists who recorded regularly for George Phang like Frankie Paul, Toyan, Michael 'Lickshot' Palmer, Charlie Chaplin, Leroy Smart, Little John, Barrington Levy, Sugar Minott, Josey Wales, Yellowman, Tenor Saw, Nitty Gritty, Leroy Smart, Frankie Jones, Peter Metro and of course Half Pint. Once more all voiced over brilliant relicks laid by (mainly) Sly & Robbie of classic (especially Studio One) riddims inna dancehallstylee like 'Love Won't Come Easy', 'Mad Mad/Diseases', 'Mojo Rock', 'Mr. Bassie', 'Pick Up The Pieces', 'Please Be True', 'Pretty Looks Isn't All', 'Queen Majesty', 'Real Rock', 'Rockfort Rock', 'Rocking Time', 'Rougher Yet', 'Shank I Sheck', 'Solomon', 'Stalag' ,'Storm', 'Talk About Love', 'Throw Me Corn', 'To Be A Lover', 'Won't You Come Home', 'You'll Never Know' but also dancehall's first digital riddim 'Sleng Teng. This compilation, organizing another 80 tunes from the early days of dancehall by riddim, is the other half of the most complete retrospective of gems released on George Phang's Power House label, available at a very fair price making it a must buy CD-box.
