Please be aware that there is an extra track on each CD making a total of 60 tracks overall, these are as follows:

CD1 Track 10 - Cholly (Funk Getting Ready To Roll) by Funkadelic (1978)
CD2 Track 03 - One Nation Under A Groove by Funkadelic (1978)
CD3 Track 16 - Oh, I by Funkadelic (1981)

Strange they should all be Funkadelic tracks? Maybe they were waiting for the copyright and forgot to update the tin and sleeves.

Anyway, this should stop you spending hours trying to work out what these extra tracks are and which track on each disc is the one missing in the liner notes and track listings.

This is put out by the same people who gave us the Superfly Soul series, which is quite simply one of the best funk series ever unleash. Superfly Soul is OOP and I urge Metro Music aka Union Square Music to re-release it.

In case you missed Superfly Soul - or even if you have it - this tin box duplicates some and adds some new tracks. The sound quality is great. Often CDs in tins are lousy, often remakes of hits, but this is the real deal. It looks cheesy, but you get great music, great sound quality, cardboard jackets - on black velvet, I swear to god...

Now the bad news: this label has now stooped to putting out the Simply Funk, Simply Blaxploitation , Simply Disco, which uses awful noise reduction....it is a shame to see such a promising label be reduced to that. Get the Metro Tins: Essential Blaxploitation, Essential Funk, Birth of Soul, Soul Legends, etc and avoid their Simply series.

If you are fond of funky music, you'll love this excellent compilation. All the records are just perfect. I'm sure you'll enjoy them all the time. Sound and fidelity are equally good.
