In hindsight the 1980s were at least as radical and influential as the 1960s and 70s as far as Black American music (i.e. Dance music) is concerned. The thing is, it didn't necessarily seem like it at the time...

Mid- decade, the evolution of Hip Hop and Rap out of early New York Electro music continued apace and the first few primitive sounding House records were beginning to emerge from Chicago and Detroit. But neither genre was anywhere close to mainstream acceptance or particularly popular amongst traditional Black/funk/soul music fans

Further south in the nation's capital, Washington DC, it was as if Electro and House had never happened. The local Black music scene was centred heavily on live orchestral funk. However, there was a modern twist - the bands would play non-stop for hours on end (literally) and hold the same beat, a steady 4/4 rhythm with the bass drum emphasising the 1 and 3. The music literally `swung'. This was embellished with a riot of percussion (congas, timbales, cowbells, you name it), ear-splitting bass synth and the kind of call-and-response vocals that had pre-dated Rap further up the coast. In Washington DC it became known as Go Go music

Being basically a live phenomenon, the translation to vinyl and beyond was slow and painful. However, once the first few Go Go records arrived in the UK on import in '84 or `85, Black music fans - who just couldn't or wouldn't relate to what was happening in Chicago and New York - welcomed them with open arms. The tough, live sound even found favour beyond the confines of the UK underground club scene, bursting into the pages of the notoriously sniffy British music press.

I had heard about Go-Go in passing but had never truly understood what it was. A little bit of investigation and a need to increase my funk collection, lead me to this Washington based collection. In terms of music quality, I found it standard fare. Save for the fact some of the tracks can last up to 10 minutes, I didn't find too many stand out tracks from a style of music that is probably stuck in a bit of a time warp, playing like it's the 1960s in the 1980s. Mind you, it is still a quality collection of great funk, and if it is your cup of tea, you won't be disappointed in terms of the artists and music they play
