5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic album! 26 Nov 2012
By Clare
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was very excited when I heard this was coming out, and managed to buy a copy at the Manchester album launch party. I'm already familiar with most of the songs from the Club nights, and I've been lucky enough to have caught The Excitements, Federation of the Disco Pimp, The Haggis Horns and Speedometer with Martha High live at these gigs over the last year or so (with other artists, like Smoove & Turrell and Lack of Afro, on my list of those I'm still desperate to see). The other songs I've heard played on the radio show.

I've only been listening to funk and soul music for a few years, so I won't say much about each track, and the clips from the full playlist are available to listen to here. I love the variety on the album, and I was really happy with the track choice for each of the artists. There are some amazing covers of classic funk songs, so it's hard to pick out my best tracks, but 'The Clap Hands Song' is my favourite to (attempt to) dance to, followed closely by 'Rocket Man', which appeals to the Red Dwarf fan in me. And Al Wilson's classic 'The Snake' is one of my all-time favourite songs, which I will never, ever tire of listening to. But there's not a single track on here I'd want to skip over.

Playing the album straight through, as I've done a few times now, really does capture the atmosphere and energy of the Club, and it's correctly advertised as a party album. It's a proper feel good CD, and I know I'll be playing this a lot! Especially in the car on the way to work, as that's when I most need to be reminded of the amazing weekends I've had. Even if you're not into clubbing, it's an excellent compilation of great quality music, so there can't be many people this won't appeal to. I really like the way the CD is presented too.

Craig Charles is one of the biggest advocated of funk and soul music in the UK, so it was surely only a matter of time before he put together a compilation of some of his favourite tracks.

This is an absolute belter, containing tracks from the likes of; Alice Russell, Smoove & Turrell, Lack Of Afro and The Bamboos. 19 tracks of hard hitting funk and soul drenched in breaks and powerful vocal hooks!

If you like funk and soul, you need this.

3.0 out of 5 stars more jazz and reggae than soul & funk? 6 May 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Not quite what was expected. Quite a few instrumental jazz and some reggae tracks. even a swing track. Just to note that its nothing like the tracks currently played on the Radio 6 Sat night show.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great compilation of Soul 'N' Funk sounds. 6 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you like gutsy, sweaty, dirty, grindy dance sounds. Then you'll love every track on this compilation, it starts like a race gun and doesn't let up.

Arrived on time, bought item due to good recommendations on Amazon. I only gave this cd 3 stars as I thought there would be more Northern Soul like his radio shows. Good seller A+

Was expecting a more smoother style of soul not like Motown also like my funk a bit more jazzy with a Nile Rogers style guitar sound, but that's just the style i prefer. Read more
