Format: Audio CD
After a few missteps in previous music products, The Ministry of Sound (MoS)is finally starting to step up to the plate and swing with a much better bat. I've reviewed a few of their albums in the past and have been as positive as I can, but now they're getting serious with this new compilation. According to MoS, these 60 tracks are among the best of funk and soul, and all of them are considered classics. I was ALMOST with them 100% this time around again, but let's look at the positives and the negatives.

The positives:
Each CD has 20 tracks (with almost an hour of music on each one!), and the majority of these songs take me back to my AM radio here in Chicago. From Curtis Mayfield to The Delfonics, and from Issac Hayes to Shuggie Otis, this collection had me grooving along. It is a fun collection to simply throw on and party to, and if you're ever feeling funky, throw this on, jump into your 1975 Cadillac Eldorado convertible and fly down the highway! From Aretha Franklin to Arthur Conley and Booker T & The MGs made this a really worthy collection - I mean, who throws really obscure stuff like Gil Scott Heron's 'The Bottle?' I was, for lack of a better word, blown away by almost all of their choices! I say almost...

The negatives:
It's so minor I guess it can be considered nitpicking, but a few of the choices by the 3rd CD had me scratching my head yet again as MoS went in another strange direction. It simply took me away from the good foot to another area altogether. Those songs were as out of place as anything else, and it definitely knocked me off my groove.

As I have also mentioned in a previous review of a MoS record product, their inclusion of more 'modern music' versus the 'true classics' makes me wonder who's doing the selecting. Blue Boy?

shed loads of content, but like so many other compilations, at best you've got about 30 per cent really worth listening to.

This is a seriously good compilation. Be warned though, if you buy it on CD and rip it to your computer CD3 had its own spelling of 'Funk Soul Classics' and you might want to go in afterwards and correct the spelling of 'Fu*k'!

Ahh! A trip down memory lane. Plenty of singing foot tapping and dancing. If this album doesn't get the party going then....well.....
