German funk galore – a huge batch of 70s gems we'd never find in years of digging on this side of the Atlantic! The grooves here are all pretty darn great – kind of a harder and heavier take on the In Kraut vibe – with vocals on some tracks, but a decided emphasis on kickass drums, rumbling bass, and wicked instrumental licks – all used to really cook up the tunes in a way that's different from American funk of the time – but equally groovy! The set list is possibly even more tight than the first volume – and like before, this one's got full notes on all the cuts – painting a full cultural picture that really helps us enjoy the music. Titles include "High Snobiety" by Sigi Schwab, "Rice & Beans" by James Last, "Get Up Stand Up" by Malcolm's Locks, "Mandrake" by Les Humprhies, "Geld" by Joy Fleming, "Back Talk" by Jurgen Franke, "Understanding" by Don Anderson, "Betwixt & Between" by Fredy Brock, "Sehnsucht" by Kati Kovacs, "Sunny" by Jochen Brauer Sextett, and "Evening Air" by Peter Thomas.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
