Vinyl LP pressing. 2014 release, the second installment in the Wheedle's Groove series documenting Seattle's soul and funk scene from 1972 to 1987. Unlike Volume I, Seattle's Soul scene did not stop in 1975. Wheedle's Groove Vol. II, documents the period from 1972 to 1987, when Funk was superseded by Disco and modern Soul. Heading into the '80s, artists in the Emerald City caught wind of the hip-hop and electro scenes that were growing in bigger cities across America, and gave the music their own distinct spin. Separated from the major centers of Soul music, Seattle was a scene that developed out of the gaze of the mainstream music industry, but one that moved just as fast. Seattle's size and location had a great effect on it's sound. Artists on the scene were accustomed to playing small, discreetly segregated club shows and pressing short runs of 45s for local radio stations.
