The Beach Diggin’ compilation series is set to enter it’s fourth edition. As always, the tag ‘Hand picked by Mambo & Guts’ signifies the mark of some stellar jams and a compilation tailor made for the beach with a mohito in hand. Vol. 4 is available through Parisian label Heavenly Sweetness on digital now, CD for 26th August, and vinyl for 16th September.
A quick look on Discogs reminds us that the Beach Diggin’ Vol. 2 is still listed at ‘sought after’ with an inflated price tag to match. The second compilation did, after all, contain Let Your Love Flow from Sonya Spence (among others!), a track of near cult status that blew up in all the right places and created a demand far beyond it’s availability. Incidently, to those after the Spence track, the opportunity recently arose to own the track on Jeremy Undergrounds ‘Beauty’ compilation – worth snapping.
Back to the Beach Diggin’ Vol. 4, the past success of the earlier compilations haven’t watered down their subsequent efforts, sticking to the core themes and doing them well. Opening with whistful jazzed-up albatross guitar number from the Boris Garber Happening, paying a visit to some synthed up disco tunes and passing by some Brazilian latin-soul, once again Beach Diggin’ offers up the chance to get some nice rarities in the collection. Snap the opportunity! – purchase here.
