Rare jazz, funk, and soul – all presented in a great tribute to one of the coolest clubs on the London scene of the 80s – the legendary Wag, home to a hotbed of rare groove activity in the years before the acid jazz years broke the whole thing wider – served up here in a special 4CD set that's overflowing with 53 classic cuts from back in the day! Even if you don't know The Wag, the set's a killer batch of funk from the 70s, with a few tracks from bracketing decades, too – all served up at a mighty nice price, given all the great music – and packaged in a special box with a huge booklet of notes on the club – which gets raves from folks as diverse as Joe Strummer, Paul Weller, Kid Creole, David Bowie, Norman Jay, and Prince.
