VA - This Funky Thing! 20 Raw & Funky Groovers 1967-1973



Well, this is the 1st of 2 mixtapes with funk from the golden years 1967-1973. It is a wide genre, and I choose to include some funky soul jazz, raw instrumentals, female popcorns, groovy gentlemen, funky R&B and a few in the blaxploitation way. This was not a try to do a fair overview of those funky years, just some good mixtapes for the ears. Sure I could have included Gil Scott-Heron and Fatback Band for example, but you can't include 'em all. James Brown and his diverse constilations, record lable and projects are not included, maybe because I heard them in absurdity. And, I will also share some mixtapes with James Browns singers, groups, projects and productions later on. Feel the funk!

  1. Thank you, Aaron. Your mixes are fun and a real treat. And now I see all in one package. Thanks. And don't ever stop providing dates. Recording or release dates are almost like having the record cover in hand. I know what I'm listening to and when it was recorded. Gives me more meaning to the songs.
