Once again, some kind of noise reduction has been used on this. Go do some comparative listening, these tracks are not rare. Most, if not all, are available in much better sound quality.....This was put out by Motown/Universal. Motown used this type of noise reduction on their Singles Box to great detrimental, although The Singles Box is not as bad as some.. A few people even noticed it if you dig in the reviews. They clearly know what they are doing, as it was NOT used on the Cellarful of Motown series, thank heavens. .....I hope this is not some kind of trend....what are the people thinking that put this stuff out? I am going to keep reporting this until it stops....Some people can actually hear what they are listening to...The effect of this comes in degrees. It pushes the music into the background so it comes out sounding like what might be called "AM stereo." Use this noise reduction a little more and the loud parts will distort out....

This is a double album that features both well known funky hits such as "Here Comes the Judge" and lesser known tracks such as "Is That Enough" from Her My Dear By Marvin Gaye. There are a number of examples of good quality early disco/proto-disco tracks such as "Girl You Need A Change Of Mind" that Motown produced in abundance. To hear Ball of Confusion by the Undisputed Truth for the first time showed the breadth of this collection. An excellent album in its own right.

Clocking in at an impressive 135 minutes and with most of the tracks sourced from the early Seventies, this is another quality budget Motown compilation. There's nothing here as funky as James Brown's work from the same period (how could there be?!) and a few of the songs are not, as funk goes, that funky. Nontheless, there's still much to enjoy here. Highlights include Gordon Stapes' Blaxploitation classic 'Strung Out' that feaures cool sweeping orchestrations drifting in and out of the mix. Undisputed Truth's cover of 'Ball of Confusion' is 10 minutes of tripped-out psychedelic soul and Odyssey's 'Our Lives Are Shaped By What We Love' has a breezy West Coast vibe. 'T Plays it Cool' highlights how versatile a songwriter and composer Marvin Gaye was and Syreeta Wright's vocals on 'To Know You Is To Love You' are sublime as is the extended outro jam (and Stevie Wonder's synthesized vocals!). Recommended.

Absolutely great selection, very loosely 'Funk' but a great listen from start to end! CD2 especially hasn't left my car stereo since this arrived. I am a big Motown fan and this goes down with some of the best compilations of their music I've heard.

a great collection if you apply the term funk loosely
I suppose a slinky backbeat can be funky
one of my all time favourites by the undisputed truth is here
I have always liked that syreeta song
some obvious bombs from stevie wonder and marvin gaye are not included
with higher ground and got to give it up this would be worth 5 stars
this is the main problem with budget compilations
