The second volume of Salsoul's 12" Gold Master Series contains five cuts that were either "previously unissued" or "previously unavailable" (whether or not there's an actual distinction between the two forms is unknown), along with a handful of previously released (or previously issued) selections. There have been scads of Salsoul compilations throughout the years, and this one's far from definitive (it certainly isn't designed that way), but it's another way for Salsoul heads to get a fix. Highlights: Loleatta Holloway's "Hit and Run," Aurra's "Make Up Your Mind," First Choice's "Hold Your Horses." Keep in mind that plenty of Salsoul compilations have been released since the mid-'90s, so the rarities might not be so hard to come by anymore.
