In hindsight the 1980s were at least as radical and influential as the 1960s and 70s as far as Black American music (i.e. Dance music) is concerned. The thing is, it didn't necessarily seem like it at the time...

Mid- decade, the evolution of Hip Hop and Rap out of early New York Electro music continued apace and the first few primitive sounding House records were beginning to emerge from Chicago and Detroit. But neither genre was anywhere close to mainstream acceptance or particularly popular amongst traditional Black/funk/soul music fans

Further south in the nation's capital, Washington DC, it was as if Electro and House had never happened. The local Black music scene was centred heavily on live orchestral funk. However, there was a modern twist - the bands would play non-stop for hours on end (literally) and hold the same beat, a steady 4/4 rhythm with the bass drum emphasising the 1 and 3. The music literally `swung'. This was embellished with a riot of percussion (congas, timbales, cowbells, you name it), ear-splitting bass synth and the kind of call-and-response vocals that had pre-dated Rap further up the coast. In Washington DC it became known as Go Go music

Being basically a live phenomenon, the translation to vinyl and beyond was slow and painful. However, once the first few Go Go records arrived in the UK on import in '84 or `85, Black music fans - who just couldn't or wouldn't relate to what was happening in Chicago and New York - welcomed them with open arms. The tough, live sound even found favour beyond the confines of the UK underground club scene, bursting into the pages of the notoriously sniffy British music press.

I was looking for some Trouble Funk
there is no comprehensive best of
only second-hand 12" singles
I have some GoGo vinyl from the 1980's
there was nothing new on cd until now
this is a good compilation of big-up boogie sounds
most of these tracks I had not heard before
if you like this you will also need
Paint The White House Black
now I need a 100w ghetto blaster!

5.0 out of 5 stars Old school funkay 26 Oct. 2013
By KublaiKhan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I really love this CD! I disagree with the other reviewer--the CD is not at all "a bunch of the same." Nice variety, and they are not songs that you find on all the other compilations of old school funk music. That's part of what makes it so special--rare songs that are not so easy to find elsewhere. Highly recommended if you're into funk music.
