5.0 out of 5 stars Funk Heaven 19 May 2006
By DW - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you like the Keb Darge, Sound of Funk and Luv N' Haight compilations, you'll think you've died and gone to funk heaven with Midwest Funk. There's no disco or other weak material. Just solid soul-funk.

Get it and get funktified.

5.0 out of 5 stars Right up there with the best ! 11 Mar 2008
By Eddie Landsberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In recent years a lot of DJs have been going through their bins, dusting off the rarest of the rare vinyl they can find and releasing funk to a funk crazed listening public... one at present more than willing and able to go beyond the standard fare of James Brown, P-Funk and Kool and the Gang albums found at most stores... Much to my delight almost none of these albums fall short of their claims of funkyness... in fact, most go beyond expectation... MIDWEST FUNK: Funk 45's from Tornado Alley is the latest ditty added to my own bin, and I must say, one of the best to date... (I read one review calling it the funkiest album of all time... I'd say that after giving a listen the arguement is pretty strong in its favor!)

As for the sound... its very interesting... a mixture of raw and gritty southern funk (remember Texas Thunder Soul - - how about Archie Bell and the Drells ?) meets the bass and horn bumpin' east bay funk... Though some cuts have a bit of a low budget feel (*actually the album is very niceley mastered!)... there is also a strong sense of production tightness and the party and groove in all reign high... with one tight band after another whipping it... and each with their own sound No, this is definitely not a "hear one, hear them all" type production... Its a battle of the bands in an age when funkyness as well as individuality counted!

As for faves... too many tied for first in this album of wailing twangy guitar, ultra greasy organ, funky drummers and fired up horn sections... all in all I'd say if you don't get this album, you simply haven't gotten the funk ! - - and by the way, the album is GOOOOOOOOD straight through... all grease, no fillers !

Six stars...! ! !

I can't rave enough about this series. All the artists for their contribution, along with the Jazz Man/Now Again label should get a Grammy for this. From the superb reproduction of the original mono sound, from the choice of material, from the muted colors of the photos used, to the color of the graphics, the liner notes, everything was done by people with the sharpest of the sharpest artist's eye. It does not matter which you choose, Midwest, Florida, Carolina or Texas, they are all incredible. My hat off to the label, too, for not issuing this in a cheapo box set. Just buy them all. This music has put me in other worlds. The next best ones are Searching For Soul and Getting It Off.

5.0 out of 5 stars AN OASIS OF FONK!!!!! 23 Jan 2007
By Martin L. King - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
this keeps me movin' TELL HER has been sampled on many occasions and i can see why. i am a sucka for that type of lyrical dynomite. MR. MACHINE is another one i love. it has that james brown feel. the singer on that..........i just love his delivery of the lyric. i dig SOULFUL PROCLAMATION, SAVE ME, and that one that tries to sound like CISSY STRUT. shoot, from beginning to end, it is a nice fonky ride. i hate getting off when it ends, so i just rev it up again, ya dig me!!!!
