Product Description

Soul Jazz Records' second volume of New Orleans Funk carries off exactly where the last one left off. With Ernie K Doe's "Here Come The Girls" riding high in the UK charts at Xmas thanks to a Boots ad (and featured on New Orleans Funk Vol. 1), this timely new collection brings together another 26 sure-fire funky New Orleans classics and rarities (which now fetch hundreds of pounds!).

Featuring everyone from The Meters to Eddie Bo, Lee Dorsey to Betty Harris, this is a who's who of Windy City's most famous and most funky!

Mixing Funk, Soul, Latin and Jazz elements, New Orleans Funk is a unique combination of styles that draw on the unique culture of the city - Mardi Gras Indians, Saturday Night Fish Fries, The Second Line Strut.

The album comes with extensive sleeve-notes, exclusive photography and more, this is an essential guide to the musical landscape of New Orleans and together with Soul Jazz Records' earlier New Orleans' releases presents the definitive story of New Orleans Funk.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Kieran on 9 Oct. 2010
I came across the Soul Jazz albums by chance. I am a big meters fan but the other artists on these Cd's were new to me. When volume one arrived it was so good I immediately ordered the second and if it is possible it is even better. Every song is downright painfully funky, and guaranteed to get your head bobbin. It's such a shame some of these artists were so little known outside new Orleans, because this is really raw, happy, groovy yet beautiful music that would have rocked the world. Thank you Soul Jazz records for uncovering these gems for us

I had previously bought Volume 1 as well as Saturday Night Fish Fry and think that this is just as good as both those albums, if not better. In particular the opening track by Cyril Neville and the Inell Young tracks are fantastic slabs of funky soul. Highly recommended.

This is the sequel to the first collection of New Orleans Funk and Soul from that late 60s and early 70s period. The first one was great, introducing me and probably many others to artists and a style of 'loose' and rythmic funk that differs from the standard funk tracks. The second volume is definitely impressive, picking up where the first one left off, with both previously mentioned artists and 'new' ones also. I personally found the first one better, but this is by no means a weak collection, especially with extra funky tracks like 'Gossip' and tongue in cheek tracks like Big Shot. As ever with Soul Jazz, extended notes are provided, meaning you will be as fully up to date with all the tracks included and feel all the better for it!
