Psych-funk, satellite soul, and cold war disco...
Rare & obscure funky licks from the ex-Soviet Bloc including Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic, ex-Yugoslaiva and the German Democratic Republic.
Features Herbie Hancock style funk workouts, psychedelic sixties pop, prog-disco, satellite-soul and
Hendrix style funk rock from some of the biggest names in these countries during the 60s & 70s.
The Iron Curtain may have isolated these states from the rest-of-the-world yet whether slipped under
the curtain as illicit imports or manufactured in limited quantities and released domestically, records
by artists such as James Brown, Average White Band and Graham Central Station found their way to
this part of the world.
In the 60s and 70s the Eastern Bloc countries had no shortage of talented musicians hungry to experiment with these new funky sounds they were hearing and Eastern Bloc Funk Experience collects together tracks from these pioneering musicians.
Whether it s string-laden cinematic grooves, synth and guitar heavy psych-funk, jazz-tinged rare-grooves
or whacked-out funky disco, Eastern Bloc Funk Experience shines a light on these new kids from the eastern bloc .

Top Customer Reviews
The music is not straight forward Funk, it's mixed with Disco, Jazz Fusion, Psychedelic Rock, Progressive Rock and Soul, as for the tracks Yuriy Gurzhy and Phil Meadley chose the best tracks that anyone would want in a compilation, there is not a dud track in sight, after one spin it blew my mind.
As for the sleeve notes Phil Meadley commentates on each track, he also spoke to the artists but most notably he tells you in detail what the regimes were like to their people and what impact it had on the artists featured on here, there is a slight credit flaw, the excellent "Agent 008" track was released by the Jazz Funk Polish band Piotr Figiel Ensemble not by Zesp.
Even if you do not understand what they are singing about on these songs let alone pronounce the song titles and some of the artists names if you like the kind of genre on this CD I very much highly recommend you purchase this,
