Philly Retrospectives Volumes 21-23 (1989-2000)

Bringing more obscure underground dopeness today, it’s volumes 21-23 in my Philly retrospective series. A few of the tracks featured here were never officially released and some of them are radio rips. Read the nfo files if you want to know particular details. I love this Philadelphia project. If you’ve been following the series you know it runs deep. If not, do yourself a favor and start here. Collectors stay tuned, volume 28 is not far away. That’s the ‘final’ Pa compilation., but as I explained with the New Jersey series, there is never really an official ‘end’ to them. These collections are a longtime and ongoing labor of love.
