This compilation of soul, funk and acid jazz from the 60s and 70s is so fine I can totally forgive the inclusion of a few rather obvious selections (the Curtis Mayfield, Gil Scott-Heron, Ann Sexton and Bobby Womack tunes).

Compiled by Chas Chandler - no relation to the late Animals bassist and discoverer of Jimi Hendrix but clearly a man who knows his soul - this is full of obscure classics both by well-known artists - e.g. Ike & Tina's "Cussin', Cryin' And Carryin' On", something they knew a lot about - and by genuine obscurities. Very few tracks are merely good, the overall standard is incredibly high and the stuff you don't know (unless you're a serious soul/funk buff, which I'm not) stands up really well next to the famous tunes. Chas Chandler has also written informative little notes about each tune. All in all a really top quality compilation, strongly recommended to both serious and casual fans of this stuff.

There really is some great stuff on this compilation, if you are a Soul and Funk fan, and you will probably find something here you are unfamiliar with, because the compilers have gone to a lot of trouble to find some obscure stuff.

This is a mix of Soul and Funk, with several cuts from the Curtom label for example, and while there are some well known cuts, from Curtis, Gil Scott Heron, Bobby Womack, the really impressive inclusions are tracks like "Its' a New Day" from a long ago deleted (and only) Skull Snaps album and "Thinking Black" from Ike Turner.

If you have always stuck with the more commercial side of Soul/Funk, do yourself a favour, get this and open your ears to the ones that never made it - not because they weren't good enough, but because they didn't get the push that would have taken them to the heights.

Well what can be said about this CD. It quite literally blew me away. After a trawl through some of the older vinyl that I own, along with the better charity/ record shops in London I wanted to get bakc into the Soul and true Funk scene. Then one day I realised, in doubt thanks to Quentin Tarantino, I fancied something a bit more contemporary and interesting. This is it! From the very first track, whether just got in from a night out; with your better half or just out in the car. The grooves are good - makes you smile and The Daddy (or Mummy ;-)!) Recommended!

An awesome mix of soul and funk! What makes it great is that there are iconic tracks by big names mixed with plenty of hard groove instrumentals and some obscure and more hard hitting ghetto numbers which don't make it on to more heavily advertised and commercial compilations. Now I just wanna ride in the 'Big Tomato' with my flares and aviators on, and drop by on Huggy Bear.

Great set, but BEWARE: Incorrect tracklist above! 18 Dec. 2009
By BOB - Published on
Verified Purchase
A fabulous set of tunes from that era, in great audio. HOWEVER:

There are nine tracks listed on the slipcover which are NOT on this set.

Stranger, the slipcover list does not match the tracklist printed on the J-card.

Even worse, the tracklist on this Amazon page also has the incorrect lineup!

Here are the corrections:

Disc 1:

9. Joe "Cornbread" Thomas - Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)
is actually "Big" Al Downing / Cornbread Now

11. S.O.U.L. - The Jones (Part 1)
is actually Ripple / A Funky Song

15. Richard "Groove" Thomas - Flyjack
is actually Gloria Taylor / Grounded (Part 1)

18. O'Donel Levy - Bad Bad Simba
is actually Charles Rouse / In A Funky Way

Disc 2:

1. Patti Jo - Make Me Believe In You
is actually The Meters / Live Wire

10. Dawson Smith - I Don't Know If I Can Make It (Part 1)
is actually Joe Tex / Wooden Spoon

13. Ramon Morris - Sweet Sister Funk
is actually Brightlights / Motor City Funk (Part 1)

15. General Crook - Fever In The Funkhouse
is actually Bettye Lavette / Do Your Duty

16. Reuben Wilson - Superfly
is actually Larry Ridley / Well, You Needn't

I'm very surprised that no one else has pointed this out in the previous reviews, because somebody seriously FUBR'd this set.

Just make sure you're not buying this set for a track which isn't actually included!

Off the radar awesome funk 28 Dec. 2004
By musichead - Published on
This is a great way to sample a large range of funk. This is REAL funk, besides the same James Brown and George Clinton songs you've heard over and over. Not to say that those two guys aren't important to how funk came about but they are just the snowflake at the tip of the iceberg. This collection (and I highly recommend the second collection as well) will give you a feel of what exists under the tip of the iceberg. Great, great selection and hours of stellar off-the-radar funk. Do yourself a favor and discover funk once more.

Pure Gold 5 Feb. 2005
By Jonathan Dunsmore - Published on
This is one of the better compilations I've picked up in awhile. Definetly the best of what's going around now. All the songs are deliciously juicy. The tempos vary but it's all head boppin'- ye know when the groove gets in you? I knew a few songs off the album before I listened to it and the rest of the album is great. Almost every tune is madness.

a very rewarding listen! 4 Mar. 2004
By fobbyjao - Published on
this double cd is packed with soulful funk and funky soul. every track is good, if not great; no skippers. the booklet also contains background info on all of the artists. this compilation introduced me to many obscure talented bands. even experienced vinyl diggers will find a few new gems among this album's 37 songs.
Update to tracklisting 3 Oct. 2013

I just ordered this CD and potential buyers might want to know that the track errors noted in previous reviews have apparently been corrected. The CD matches the disc art and the Amazon trackisting. So if you're looking for "Fever In The Funkhouse" or other rarities missing from earlier editions- they are here!
