Absolute funk

Absolute Funk vol 1, 1969-73 (body&Soul, Night&Day, 2005)



They certainly got the title right on this one -- as the set's overflowing with killer funk that's absolutely the best of the best! The 20 tracks on the set are all great, all legit, and all presented with a real love for a snapping funky 45 groove -- and from what we can tell, most of them have never been reissued before on CD -- making the set an even bigger treat to our ears. Great all the way through -- with plenty of hard numbers that include "I Kicked The Habit" by Sarah Simpson, "Everything's Gonna Be All Right" by Robert Moore, "You" by Spanky Wilson, "Do It For Me" by General Crook, "Sagittarius (part 1)" by Landlords & Tenants, "Funky Virginia" by Sir Guy & The Rocking Cavaliers, "Daddy Love (parts 1 & 2)" by Gi Gi, "I Got Hurt" by The Phillips Brothers, "You Stay On My Mind" by Lena Mone, "Sleep Walk (parts 1 & 2)" by Joe & The Everyday People, "Don't Knock The Cop" by Soul Patrol, and "Funky Walk" by Watson & The Sherlocks.

Absolute Funk Vol.2, 1967-74 (body&Soul, Night&Day, 2005)


Absolute Funk and absolutely funky -- a no-nonsense collection that really lives up to its name! Like the crack first volume, this second collection is filled with the kind of all-great funky 45 material that first got us looking past LPs years ago -- the kind of killer singles that really stood out way back in the day, revered for their hard and soulful grooves, and not just for the high prices they would later fetch on Ebay! This collection really gets to the heart of the funky 45 genius -- and treads ground that may be slightly familiar to the higher echelon of collectors, but which is still pretty great and relatively new to us -- and to the rest of the folks in the world who don't have weeks of free time to spend driving around looking for records! As with the last set, this one's all-legit, all-licensed, and produced with great notes throughout -- and features 20 tracks in all that include "Get Down" by Harvey Scales & The 7 Sounds, "The Tramp (parts 1 & 2)" by The Showmen Inc, "Ride On Iron Horse" by Marlboro Men, "What Would It Be Like (part 1)" by Freddie Wilson, "This Is My Thing" by Tommy Bass, "Sad Chicken" by Leroy & The Drivers, "Rover Or Me" by Good Time Charlie, "I'm The Man" by Chris Jones, "Funky Grandpaw (part 1)" by Incomparable Seven, "Stand Up & Be A Man (parts 1 & 2)" by Sundia, "The Commerce Thang" by Chamber Of Commerce, "Don't Change On Me" by The Zodiacs, and "Let's Do That Thing" by Flip Flop Stevens & The Famous Pop Tops.

Absolute Funk Vol 3, 1967-1976 (body&Soul, Night&Day, 2006)

Killer funk all the way through -- presented here with wonderful sound and a set list that includes plenty of unreissued rarities! This volume may well be the best in this already-great series -- as its got a totally hip, totally heavy feel -- one that goes out of its way to dig up funk tracks that are perfectly put together -- and not just tunes that happen to be rare! The vocals on many tracks are as great as the instrumentation -- matching the hard drums, scratching guitar, blasting horns, and rolling bass with singers who easily rival the best deep soul talents from the James Brown universe. And as with other volumes, the package is all legit, and presented with great notes on the material -- further emphasizing the careful production of the Absolute Funk series! Titles include "Cool Dad" by Ross Carnegie, "When You Git Through Wit It Put It Back" by City Council Ltd, "What It Is (parts 1 & 2)" by Apollis, "Changes" by The Visitors, "Super Sweet Girl Of Mine" by 5 Miles Out, "Is It Funky Enough" by Communicators & Black Experiences Band, "Clique" by Con-Funk-Shun, "Upstairs On Boston Road (parts 1 & 2)" by Sammy Gordon & The Hip-Huggers, "My Mind Set Me Free (parts 1 & 2)" by House Guests, "Crossin Over" by Carl Holmes & The Commanders, and "Tear It Up (parts 1 & 2)" by Billy Wade & The 3rd Degrees.

Absolute Funk Vol 4, 1968 - 1975 (body&Soul, Night&Day, 2007)

About as funky as you can get for CD reissues -- a massive batch of rare 45s, all brought together in a great collection that's supported with wonderful notes in both French and English! The Absolute Funk team have dug deeper than ever this time around -- and have managed to come up with a blistering batch of tunes that represent the cream of the crop of the funky underground at the end of the 60s -- tasty little goodies that strut, vamp, and soar with rough-edged instrumentation and gut-wrenching vocals! There's a real in-your-face quality to the sound here that's amazing -- a boldness that bursts forward from the very first note of the set, and which never lets up throughout. Titles include "Right On" by Barbara & Gwen, "Foot Stomping" by The Organics, "Forget About That Mess (parts 1 & 2)" by The Marvells, "Come On Let's Do The Breakdown" by Family Plan, "You Ain't My Brother" by The Soul Shakers, "Funky Four Corners" by Richard Marks, "Ridin High (parts 1 & 2)" by Bobby Cook Quartette, "You Lost Your Thing" by Hank Johnson, "The Funky Mule (parts 1 & 2)" by Marvin Holmes & The Uptights, "Mister Boogie" by Brother Soul, "Sugar Daddy" by Levert Allison, "Push & Shove" by Willy Willey, "Explain It" by The Tenderonies, "I Get A Groove" by Thomas East & The Fabulous Playboys, and "How Can I Hit The Ball" by Bill Wright

Youngsters with pale skin tend to look and feel ball gowns “washed out” in brilliant fuchsia, darker colors, and hefty plaid. ball gowns One example is, little ladies who merely can not resist ball gowns
