AllMusic Review by

The second volume of BBE's long-running Stop and Listen series was put in the hands of Jasper the Vinyl Junkie, a U.K. DJ who follows in Dr. Bob Jones' footsteps with an equally diverse (if a bit more uneven, from a quality standpoint) selection of tracks that spans several decades of club-oriented music. Similar in format to the other volumes of Stop and Listen, Jasper merely picks the tracks and sequences them, with no proper mixing involved. The highlights here include Steve Arrington's "Summertime Lovin'," the P-Funk All Stars' "It's Too Funky in Here," Organized Konfusion's "Walk Into the Sun," and Maceo Parker's "Soul Power '74." For better or worse, none of the picks are obvious.
