The Soul Fire label was active between 1999 and 2003 and released mainly sleazy 45's.
The first disc of this double offering was originally released on vinyl only showing the best cuts the label had to offer. The CD release added a second disc and 16 more cuts.
There's only a couple vocal songs on here courtesy of Lee Fields. The rest are funk workouts or cool slow jams.
You'll find much the same players under different names such as El Michels Affair, Bronx River Parkway, The Soul Diggers, Third Eye, Bama & the Family.
Modern Funk is an accurate description and a welcome addition to your future party sounds.
Oh yes, and this. I'm docking one star for the lack of extra information on the sleeve. No bios, not even writing credits. That could've been better.
