      Not a patch on the first volume

      This album is in a similar style to the first part of the Las Vegas Grind collection but seems like it may be the scraps - it pales in comparison. The Las Vegas Grind compilations are volumes of music that was played often live in strip joints of Las Vegas in the 50s and 60s, the music often had naughty undertones and most of the tracks weren't considered viable commercial music.

      There are a few decent bluesy garage tracks but on the whole the music seems a bit daft, neither as naughty with the subject matter as the first installment nor does it possess equally as impressive musicianshp. Strangely enough the recordings are better but it doesn't improve the mediocrity audible on the album.

      I had high hopes for this but it seems that trying to get 2 compilations out of the same theme in the same era was pushing it just a bit too much. The poorer songs on the album tend to either lack direction and seem to float around or are too repetitive, it seems that their lack of commercial possibilities also meant that there may have been no one structuring their music as some tracks just have a bit of a messy jam feel to them. By all means, get the first but I wouldn't bother with this volume!
