5.0 out of 5 stars Funkin' out in every way!, 16 Jan 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Funk Drops 2 (Audio CD)
What can i say that hasnt been said before? Funk music remains, in my opinion, the most expressive, groovy, yet relaxing music ever! And this album is the best exemplar of these virtues! It has everything! Every track exudes funk to its very core; sweet, sweet, (oh man, they're sweet) riffs over fantastic rhythm parts with basslines to die for. Look out for track 13; King Curtis (The Daddy) and his band perform a 7 minute live improvistation that is so funky, the Aussies can smell it! The quality of the recordings is fantastic and the talent that is displayed here is, in my opinion, unequalled on most other funky compilations.
Funk Drops 2 is a must have for any funk-lover, music-lover, or eclectic out there. If you ready to embrace anything this year, embrace this.
I'm not gonna force you, but hey, you'll be the one missing out if you don't. As for me, well I have a dancefloor to be getting back to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gargantuan tunes. Unfathomably good, 23 Sep 2010

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Funk Drops 2 (Audio CD)
Having purchased a lot of these Funk compilation albums I can say with authority that this is the greatest. Tracks 12-14 (King Curtis, Baby Huey, Curtis Mayfield) are three of the greatest funk tracks in the history of the genre. I urge both aficionados and newcomers to purchase this album and disseminate amongst the masses because music this good needs to be shared.

Outstanding stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Killer Funk Cuts, 29 Oct 2002

This review is from: Funk Drops 2 (Audio CD)
this album has everyting, i dont know where to start. it is even better than volume 1 and at this price it is a steal.
for me the stand out tracks are 'king curtis', 'Society's Bag', 'Dr. John' and Kissing my love by cold blood has some heavy beats indeed. also have to mention 'the champ' by the mohawks as i dont think it has been on CD before now.
Some of the tracks aren't the most obscure and difficult to get hold of, but once its in yer player, its staying there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality Compilation, 22 Nov 2005
By 
Nick reed (London, United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Funk Drops 2 (Audio CD)
I bought this album mainly for "The Champ", but was very pleasantly surprised by the many other gems on here, and the consistency of quality across all the tracks. Highly recommended - one of the best compilations I own. King Curtis's Memphis Soul Stew is top notch, as is the The Noble Knights' version of Sing a Simple Song. Buy it!
