Description

Extremely funky and danceable! LP with style-defining groovemonsters.

Funk had its heyday in the sixties and seventies when James Brown, Kool & The Gang, Isaac Hayes, Sly & The Family Stone or Earth, Wind & Fire regularly conquered the charts and ecstasized everyone in the clubs. But that was not the end of the radio chapter.

On the one hand genres like Afrobeat (Fela Kuti) or Fusion-Jazz (Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock) are inconceivable without Funk, on the other hand James Brown, Wild Cherry, George Benson or Rick James served as role models and sampling sources for Hip-Hop (Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, Snoop Doggy Dogg, Warren G, Nate Dogg), Disco and House. Funk also left a more than perceptible trace in rock music (Gang of Four, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Faith No More, Living Colour).

In other words: Those who like you and your music history will be delighted with the compilation "Funk All Stars", because genre classics like "Move On Up" (Curtis Mayfield), "Get Down On It" (Kool & The Gang), "Everybody Dance" (Chic), "Soul Power" (James Brown) or "Ain't Nobody" (Chaka Khan) literally make the whole pop culture ring. Everyone else is simply happy about an extremely groovy LP with funk highlights for eternity.
