I'm pretty partial to the genre called Country Funk but apparently not hardcore enough.
Familiar with most artists on this compilation, I bought it especially for the names I was unfamiliar with.
The biggest surprise (and dare I say the best song too) was finding former teen idol Bobby Darin (Bob Darin now) on here singing Light Blue. Killer song.
Tony Joe White, Jim Ford, Bobby Charles, Link Wray, Bobbie Gentry, Larry Jon Wilson. The best in the genre. Only Joe South and Billy Joe Royal seem to be missing.
But what about Gritz, Cherokee, Gray Fox or Dennis the Fox?
And still their songs on here belong on this comp seamlessly.
Light in the Attic records who compiled and released this treasure of Country Funk sure are in the running for one nomination or other.
Excellent job, you guys!
