Posse, Are You Ready? (Vol. II) - a 1979 - 1985 rub-a-dub mix by BMC

Late august this year I dropped my first rub-a-dub mix in a long time: "Posse, Are You Ready? Vol. I". As promised, when there would be enough interest, I'd drop a Vol. II soon. Well, here it is! Got great response to Vol. I that even went to the negative side with someone selling CD's of it on ebay (!!!, and ebay did nothing with my claims to remove it, ahhh, frustrating) and people requesting me to upload the tunes seperately for them to download (forget it, that is so not my intention with these mixes!!!!). Luckily, most response was just positivity on the vibes and the selection.

Vol. II has the exact same recipe as Vol. I: early 80s tunes by a whole variety of singers and deejays and no vocalist appears twice, all tracks taken from vinyl, so expect some crackle and pop here and there. Mix in the usual BMC style: no full tunes, one continuous 60 min. mix with some added soundsamples.

Yo star you should upload a high quality version of this to Mediafire or something so it can be downloaded... while you're at it you could do the same for Vol. 1 so I don't have to keep listening to my crappy Soundcloud rip lol.... Respect
