Dan Hegarty returns from his highly successful debut, Buried Treasure, to present Buried Treasure Volume 2, a colourful smorgasbord of music contained within a book.

PRAISE FOR BURIED TREASURE
“Hidden treasures and bidden pleasures, a portal into people’s heads that leads us towards their musical memories and uncharted mysteries, the trackmarks of tunes by often-unsung high priests and priestesses of The Church Of Aural Sects, LPs that influenced and informed now re-visited and re-awoken. Thus it is here. Read the words and then drop the needle.” —BP Fallon, NYC
"A great reason to visit some great albums. Thanks to the passion in the writing, there is no excuse for not checking out some fantastic stuff that might have passed under your radar." — Dave Fanning, RTÉ 2fm
"Buried Treasure is an essential read… a unique ‘map’ to finding the ignored and lost great music that the internet doesn't tell you about." —Gavin Friday
