Uptown's Block Party, Vol. 2 is an excellent retrospective of the urban R&B label's first ten years, boasting hits like Soul for Real's "Candy Rain," Heavy D's "We Got Our Own Thang," Guy's "I Like," Father MC's "I'll Do 4 U," Jodeci's "Come and Talk to Me" and Mary J. Blige's "You Don't Have to Worry." It's a concise and entertaining overview of one of the finest urban labels of the late '80s and early '90s, and any new jack and hip-hop fan should purchase it and its accompanying volume.
