Boomkat Product Review:
"After a box of thought-to-be-lost Deep City master tapes turned up in Miami in January 2007, the idea of an Eccentric Soul: Deep City sequel reared it's head. Instead, Numero's next release The Outskirts Of Deep City fills in the spaces left by the original. As well as seven previously unissued tracks, there are thirteen other related gems from the Solid Soul, Sun Cut, Reedsville, Lloyd and Concho labels, plus four LP only bonus cuts. LP comes in a gatefold sleeve, the CD has a 32 page booklet, crammed with a wealth of unpublished photographs, appendix, bibliography and discography. With unheard cuts from Clarence Reid, Helene Smith, Betty Wright, Frank Williams & The Rocketeers, Johnny K Killens & The Dynamites, James Knight & The Butlers, Deep City Band, The Rising Sun, The Rollers, Perk Badger, Snoopy Dean, Nasty Dog Catchers and Lynn Williams."
