Review

`There's no resisting the clattering rhythms and unfettered emotions of songs such as Betty Harris' evergreen `Mean Man'. In the words of Gus "The Groove" Lewis: "Lay back, relax, and let the groove move you". *** -- Q Magazine

The fact of Dean Rudland and DJ Andy Smith being involved with this project should be enough to whet the appetite of even the most seasoned record buyer, with Rudland having an acknowledged history of compiling quality driven compilations and Smith having shown his technical prowess and musical ear through his 'The Document' mix series (1998 (Volume 1), 2003 (Volume 2) and 2009 (Volume 3). If, however, you are expecting a similarly 'mixed' project then you may be disappointed. Instead you get a single disc featuring 23 tracks drawn from 1958 to 1972 (one apparently published in 1987), with short liner notes written by Rudland and Smith. Rudland writes of his discovering Lee Dorsey, and through him the wider "window into the amazing sounds of New Orleans...a city...(that) made every record with a touch of funk".

The disc opens with the bouncing wide rhythm and tight drum licks of 'Lover & Friend' (1968) by Eddie Bo & Inez Cheatham, a record that harnesses a powerfully raw vocal to a driving force that screams for the dance floor. 'Mean Man' (1968) by Betty Harris is an example of a vocalist delivering a strong melodic vocal over a short and tightly delivered groove. The effect of rythmn continues with 'Let The Groove Move You' (1967) by Gus 'The Groove' Lewis, with its driving, highly percussive drum track, whilst 'Boogaloo Mardi Gras' (Part 1 & 2) (1966) features some wonderful guitar work, an instrument that has almost completely disappeared from contemporary black music.

Impressively even compilation without any real bummers, and six
fantastic funk/soul/r&b nuggets from Eddi Bo & Inez Cheetham, Gus
The Groove Lewis, Zila Mays(VOW!!!A bad slice of sister funk!),
Eddie Lang, Eldridge Holmes and Roger & His Gypsies.
Just as good as you would expect from Rudland and Andy Smith.
Rudland being responsible for numerous excellent collections and
liner notes on funk, soul and jazz compilations, and Portishead's
former tour DJ Andy Smith, who made the cool and diverse "The
Document" album a few years back.
If you like the "New Orleans Funk" compilation from Soul Jazz
Records then this should go down well.

Funk, like rock n' roll and R&B can have a pretty loose definition these days. For me its the sort of stuff James Brown kicked out in his middle period - massive grooves often on a single chord rather than traditionally structured songs.

But Funk means many things to many people.

Virtually anything can be funky whithout being funk - from Hammond-driven jazz to disco through classic soul.

I'd categorise most of the tracks here as being song-based soul music just on the cusp of mutating into that groove-based funk that James used to play.

The song remains king but my word those bass lines and horn fills are catchy.

But regardless of your definition this is tremendous stuff. No filler whatsoever. Deliscious and nutritious.

This is the sort of thing they heard over the radio in Jamaica and tried to copy, ending up with reggae.

I recently ordered this baby, as I've been getting back on the New Orleans tip (Thanks Treme'). Now, as everyone else says, it's a mighty fine comp, a bunch of the tracks I already have, so yeah delicious stuff. But, the main reason I got the comp is for 'Boogaloo Mardi Gras Pts 1 & 2' but it appears to be, I assume pt 1, clocking in at 1:15, I don't think they fitted a part 2 in there and that's the bit everybody wants. Am I covering old ground here? The other thing, although it also may be old news, 'All I Want Is You' Mays, Zilla & The Blues Caravan, killer track, I've played it a million times - it's not Betty Harris ??? It's on the BH Charley comp, what gives?
Anyhoot, lots of fun.
Thanks for the speedy delivery.
