Further Information

“This Is Street Funk” is part of a new series aimed at vinyl buyers who wants a genre specific compilation to excite their ears. Two sides of fantastic music, at an affordable price, cherry picked from Ace and its associated catalogues. Compiled by Dean Rudland, who also writes the liner notes, “This Is Street Funk” brings you 14 tracks of hard hitting, heavy funk, and sums up the sound of 70s Black America. A combination of fatback drums, syncopated bass, rhythmic guitars and explosive vocals. The line-up of tracks includes classics from the Fatback Band and Millie Jackson, dancefloor favourites from Billy Garner and Billy Sha-Rae and screaming organ instrumentals from the Fame Gang and Larry & Tommy. This is fourteen tracks that defy you to start dancing.

Dean Rudland and the BGP crew at Ace Records do it again. Honing in on our needs to hear the good stuff here is pretty much an essential DJ and home-listening, shake yourself round the kitchen compilation of sought after but oh so get down funkified groovers. Rare BUT totally first listen and your hooked wonders! You need this comp!
