What an extraordinary compilation of funky tracks!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Stax of Funk: the Funky Truth (Audio CD)
Ace Records has done it again! This CD is but one in a long line of funky compilations excavating and reissuing tons of old, out-of-print, and occasionally never-before-released funk singles from the 1960's and '70's, and it's a scorcher from start to finish! Beginning with 'Do Me' by Jean Knight (refreshingly not 'Mr. Big Stuff') the groove starts to build, moving on to 'Watch The Dog That Brings The Bone' by Inez Foxx, and culminating in what - for me - is the standout track: Rufus Thomas' scorcher 'Funky Hot Grits'. It sounds like the musicians are having so much fun laying down these tracks that the entire CD just puts a smile on my face. Anyone into the rare groove scene and compilations by BBE, Harmless, and Ace Records will enjoy this disc immensely. Highly recommended!
