I totally agree with all the previous comments but for me the ultimate track on this comp is 'I Need You' by 'Hollywood And the Heat' AKA Joe Smooth & Frankie Rodriguez. Absolute timeless classic!! Also 'Choice of A New Generation' by 'Rocky Jones' is worth checking along with numerous others!! Don't forget 'Promised Land' is on here too! This LP really does showcase a very special time in the early days of House Music's evolution. Essential:)

Some great tracks on this comp, I bought this back in the day...Joe Smooth's Inside My Mind is worth the purchase of this can also be found on Joe Smooth's first Lp

This compilation actually has quite a few exclusive or rather elusive tracks on it. Who is Andre Owens, i'd love to have a full length version of his 'Destiny of Love'. Secret Secret has it's only appearance here. Professor Funk's Box Head is exclusive to this album as is Blake Baxter's Work from the top of my head. All great tracks if you ask me, all published by Rocky Jones' Popstar, maybe he still has a vault of tapes somewhere. So, yes, an essential compilation.

Joe Smooth's 'Inside My Mind' is an outstanding slice of early deep house, and this exclusively featured track makes Jackmaster 2 an essential compilation. Also includes the original mix of 'Promised Land'. Superb in indeed...

My favourite record of all time - Jackmaster 2. I still have this record and will never part with it!

Love Invasion is one of the forgotten classics of the 80's house era. I first heard this on Westside's Jackmaster 2 compilation in '88 and played it non stop!!

I loved this track so much I covered it myself with our dance project Kandystand in an up to date style.

Fantastic soulful lyrics written by Gavin Christopher and Rocky Jones, and his sister Shawn Christopher brings her soulful voice to the vocals.

My only criticism is that the original track didnt sound mastered that well (could have done with a little more compression) but hey this was the pioneering 80's when gear was expensive...

20 years of house and tracks like this still sound fresh....
