...Is the only track missing from here which would suit the summery theme of it so well! Sly and the Family Stone, Hot fun in the summertime for those wondering.
Great compilation of tracks here, to give your party/everyday life that little extra funk and soul lift.
A huge Stevie fan, so Higher Ground had me on the good foot in no time, and I'm glad to see the classics - Commodores, Aretha Franklin (Rocksteady sounds remastered it seems to my ears), James Brown, Maceo and the Macks.
Some excellent other choices as well - Temptations 'Psychedelic Shack', one of my favourites but which I've never seen featureed on a funk compilation before, Marvin Gaye with 'I Want You' and 'Inner City Blues' rather than 'Got to Give It Up', Chic's 'I Want Your Love'. And some I'd never heard of before, though I'm an ardent funk follower/soul subscriber - the Equals 'Funky Like A Train', American Gypsy. I tip my hat to the compilers!
Downside? Well, not a disco fan so I skip over the Barry White and Bohannon. But apart from that, it's all very very good.
Go forth and buy it!
