Right from the first defiant beat of Ann Sexton's 'You're Losing Me' you know the direction where Stone Cold Funk is taking you. Certainly, there are enough fat tunes here to fill the hippist students' party twice-over, yet Stone Cold Funk's real strength lay in the intimacy of the song writing. There's a rawness, an honesty, that draws the audience onto the mean streets of an early '70s black Harlem. Whether its Sexton's powerful ballads of unrequited love or Aaron Neville's sublime recounting of inner-city poverty, songs of personal hardships endured dominate Stone Cold Funk. This wonderful compilation affirms the importance of funk in black culture. Funk is quintessentially upbeat and optimistic, and whether your life is debilitated by dead-end jobs, abusive boyfriends, cash problems and worse, you know that if you get the funk out you'll make it through 'til tomorrow. There's not a duff track here, although The Ohio Players 'Mother-in-Law' steals the show. 'Satan should be her name,' indeed!

ok, so you've listened to james brown, and you've felt the funk. great. and while nothing is going to be as funky as the true master himself, where do you go when the godfather leaves for eighties-ville? back to the seventies of course! and here is one of the finest collections of funky cuts you'll find. there's not a dud on the disc. that's what's going down in groove town...

I've been searching around for a selection like this for a long time...a mix of some classic funk anthems,
things I know and love, alongside little known rarities from artists who never quite reached the heady
heights of fame back when funk was at its peak. So, this is a dream-come-true in a compilation!
Starting off with Ann Sexton's 'You're losing me', a brilliantly tight number, with the passion and anger
in the lyrics straining against the cool and compression of the backing track - which made me later
track down Ann Sexton's brilliant Anthology in an attempt to hear more of her work. Some excellent cuts
from Ripple, Sir Joe Quarterman, a personal favourite of mine, and SkullSnaps. The Ohio Players always
either get represented by 'Love rollercoaster' or 'Fire', so it's refreshing to see 'Mother-in-law'
one of their earlier tracks, showcasing their fire and tightness even in their early days. 'Got to Getcha'
was new to my ears, as was 'Tropical' by the Africa Music Machine and the military, yet anti-war vibe to the amazing Meters' 'Keep on Marchin'.
A fantastic collection, overall - just an hour plus of some excellent cuts and grooves to have been produced during the Funk era, a CD you'll play again and again and find out it only gets better with time. And with a
ridiculously low price like that, you would be crazy not to purchase it!
