VA - Funk Of '75 (20 Groovy Funksters From 1975)




Well - here is a mixtape I made with some groovy and soulful funk from 1975. This was not a try to do a serious overview of the funk scene from 1975 - it's just a simple mixtape with some favourite tracks, that's all, nothing more or less. But, I think the tape went pretty groovy!

01. Black Blood - Avenue Louise
02. The 9th Creation - Bubble Gum
03. Roy Porter Sound Machine - Party Time
04. Hudson County - Bim Sala Bim
05. Debbie Hines - Get Off Your Butt
06. The Dutch Rhythm Steel & Showband - Funky Stuff
07. Peoples Choice - Nursery Rhymes
08. Lillian Hale - Don't Boom Boom
09. The Funky Boys - Solid Funk
10. Ronnie Laws - Nothing To Lose
11. Funkhouse Express - Disco Kid
12. Exit 9 - Fly
13. Johnny Hammond - Shifting Gears
14. Gonzalez - Rissoled
15. Freedom Express - Get Down
16. Carol Grimes - Uphill Peace Of Mind
17. Sugar Billy - Keep Movin On
18. Jim Gilstrap - One More Heartache
19. Thom Janusz - Crystals
20. Mandrill - Livin It Up

Enjoy!

  6. Congratulations for your fine taste on so many different music styles and many thanks for this and other compilations you have made. "Nursery Rhymes" by People's Choice is bombastic and a true "raw funk" gem, but ALL the tracks in their "Boogie Down USA" album and in the next album "We Got The Rhythm" contains tons of groove and mellow grooves!

    Cheers from Tarragona
