4.0 out of 5 stars Too much funk for one person to take! 5 Mar 2008
By N Lyle
Format:Audio CD
After listening to this double CD pack crammed full of classics and lesser known gems I've come to the conclusion that I need help! The funk has finally hit the fan and I have become completely funked up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Vital Soul & Funk tracks from the 1970s 16 April 2014
By Donald E. Gilliland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
First of all, ignore the lame album title and even worse cover artwork; this is a terrific compilation of soul and funk music, mostly from the 1970s, but there are also a handful of tracks from the late 1960s and one song (by Material, with Nona Hendryx on vocals) from 1981.

Although there are many popular artists on this collection, I like the fact that the compilers did not choose the obvious or more popular tracks by those acts, but instead picked more in the way of rarities, or at least lesser known tunes. For example, the James Brown song, "People Get Up and Drive Your Funky Soul" is taken from the soundtrack to the film "Slaughter's Big Rip Off"; the song by The Isley Brothers, "Nothing To Do But Today," is an older album track; from Gil Scott-Heron we get the lovely but rarely heard "Back Home:"; and the Curtis Mayfield track is "Billy Jack." About the only huge hit that's included is "You Can Make It If You Try" by Sly & The Family Stone." As someone who owns a ton of compilations and individual artist CDs, I love the fact that this collection has so many songs that I don't have already.

There are also several songs from New Orleans acts that help spice up this collection, including a few by the great Eddie Bo. One song, "I've Got What You Need" by Mary Jane Hooper, is an obscure number from 1968 the Eddie Bo wrote and produced. We also hear Bo's band The Gaturs on "Gatur Bait", plus a duet he did with Inez Cheatham, and yet another song he recorded with the Soul Finders.

There are also some funky, but fairly obscure instrumentals by the Ohio Players, Kool & the Gang, The Meters, the Commodores (this track, "Rise Up," was written and produced by Jerry "Swamp Dogg" Williams), and Earth Wind & Fire. Other treats include Jesse Anderson doing a cover of Curtis Mayfield's "Readings in Astrology," Ray J (another New Orleans act) with a cool cover of Dr. John's "Right Place Wrong Time," and Leroy Hutson sounding like George Clinton on the supremely funky "Blackberry Jam."

The CD set comes with a booklet that has short descriptions of each track. Any fan of 1970s funk and soul will find a lot to like on this 2-CD set. Well worth getting, as are some of the other volumes in this "Sessions" series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some great, greasy, fat funk! (4.5 stars) 14 Mar 2005
By C S M - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
There are a bunch of songs on here from artists I'd never heard of before, but it didn't matter! I bought the double CD, put the best tunes onto an 80 minute CD, and sold the original to a used CD store. It made me realize how good the best songs from this CD are! Even the James Brown song didn't make it to my compilation CD. Don't be put off by the inclusion of artists you haven't heard of -- it's worth the purchase!
