Stones Throw label boss Peanut Butter Wolf has created a mix in conjunction with the launch of new boutique label Five Day Weekend. 45 Live is a 19 track voyage through the archives of labels such as Enjoy, Sleeping Bag, Fresh, Cold Chillin, Strong City, Nia and Idlers, about which Mr Wolf says "As a kid growing up in San Jose, CA when all this stuff was coming out, I was hooked and half a lifetime later I still am." The box set collection of 7" vinyls are to be released 21 September. Click here for more info on the release and a track-by-track breakdown by Mr Wolf himself.
