What long forgotten but great funk would you recommend to folk who're looking for a change from JB, P-Funk, Kool etc. Some excellent stuff I've come across quite recently which I thoroughly recommend to funk fans..
Sound Experience - The Soulville Collection. All that's available now but top quality up tempo deep horn-y and slighty rockish grooves
Rhythm Makers - Soul on Your Side. top track 'Zone' which has a cracking bass line
The Kaygees - big combo fronted by Kool's younger bro. The album to get in Keep on Bumpin & Masterplan which is like early Kool & TG
Mandrill - truly great in parts, less so in others but the Fencewalk anthology is a cracker
Ripple - not much of their stuff available but the comp I Dont Know What it Is But It Sure Is Funky is worth getting
Soul Searchers - pre Chuck Brown & the.., the one to get is Salt of the Earth.
Trouble Funk - THE go-go band. if you cant afford the Droppin Bombs anthology go for the 2008 reissue of Drop The Bomb. Party music doesnt come any better.
