I'd never heard of any of these singers and it was great to discover them for the first time. To be honest I don't know much about funk or soul but these tracks seem to cover a lot of diffferent styles from near-jazz to virtually disco-style. I'm looking forward to exploring further - starting with the follow-up album 'Funk Soul Sisters further adventures'

Really funky 2CD compilation of funk soul classics from women of the 60's, 70's and early 80's.

Unlike most compilations, there are no filler songs. Every track is worth the price, including some of the more rare songs included. Standouts are ''No Good at Falling in Love'' by underrated Queen of Funk Betty Davis, ''Jessie Joe'' from Jean Knight and a rare jazz-themed track called ''Memories'' by Material featuring a young, then unheard of Whitney Houston on vocals.

Definatly worth a purchase if you're a fan of funk-soul.

If you don't know the names on this compilation then follow DavidB by taking a chance on it. If you know the names you won't need me to talk you into the purchase at this price. Standout track (and probably best known) is Betty Wright's Clean Up Woman.

A corker of a compilation , however, at £199.99, I think I'll have to give it a wide swerve !
