Fantastic Funk


Depois de todos os Zappas, e dos Genesis, nada melhor que um sonzinho para dançar um pouco. Segue um álbum, com algumas raridades para você chacoalhar a vitrolinha...






Goldmine/Soul Supply is the U.K. label that put together the stellar Sound of Funk series, compiling a host of terrific deep funk rarities for the groove-obsessed collector. Fantastic Funk, Vol. 1 is a worthy addition to that legacy, gathering 16 more obscure, infectious funk singles from what seems like an inexhaustible supply. Unlike many deep funk comps, there's a hefty preponderance of vocal performances on this one, which helps give it a bit more personality. Many, many bonus points are awarded just for the inclusion of deep funk legend Lee Fields' "Funky Screw," a would-be dance craze every bit as priceless as its title suggests. Elsewhere, Julia DeWitt gets into an endearingly involved monologue on the cheating tale "If You Want Your Man," which features the oughta-be-a-classic line "Now who in the world ever heard of a nurse's aide convention?!" There's also a solo cut by Sam Moore of Sam & Dave, "Can You Dig It," which interpolates a bit of "Soul Man" in what seems like a desperate bid for recognition. Terrific grooves abound throughout the set, supporting lyrics about love, philosophy, and just plain dancing. More proof that Goldmine is perhaps the most reliable deep funk reissue label around.
