There is so much good music in the Document Catalogue and these samplers are an excellent way of taking a shortcut into the biggest catalogue of vintage blues,
jazz, gospel, boogie-woogie and country music in the world. Maybe you already know something about Document, maybe (to use a music biz term) you are just "scratching the surface". Either way, here is a clip, a snippet, an appetizer made up from great tracks found within the catalogue.

The songs and music will bring you the full spectrum of human emotion; from humour, often with tongue firmly placed in cheek, to sadness, sometimes reaching a spiritual, emotional level. The music found on Document is about so many different things; things that we will recognise, regardless of our nationality, religion, colour, politics, education, class or wealth and that is because it is unashamedly about real life as you and I have known it, either for a moment or a lifetime.

"You can hear a certain type of record playin'. You can be feelin' very normal, nothin' on your mind, period. But it's somethin' on that record hits you.
It's somethin' that you have happened in your life." - John Lee Hooker.

Shortcuts Volume 2 features artists such as the bluesmen Muddy Waters, Bukka White, Skip James; to the old time countrystars Frank Hutchison and Fiddlin` John Carson amongst others.

Each CD booklet will provide an introduction to Document, full track details and original discographical details and references to Document CDs that each track is taken from.
