Raw instrumental funk from the mighty Soul Investigators – true trailblazers on the international funk revival scene! This Finnish combo started recording raw, searing takes on classic funk in the late 90s – and from there cut some incredible, and now quite rare funky 45s – and many of those stellar tracks are on the great Home Cooking set. It's a fantastic collection of deep funk instrumentals – and we couldn't be more thankful this group – who paved the way for the thriving, worldwide funky soul scene! Titles include "Home Cooking" (Parts 1 & 2), "Mo' Hash", "Greasy Pork", "Midnight Bar-B-Q", "Deep Fired Chitlings", "Momma's Gravy (Yum Yum)", "Electric Cooker", "Micro Popcorn", "Baby! It's Delicious" and more. This 2012 CD edition also has 3 previously unreleased tracks from the same 1999-2001 recording period: "Funcky Bagg", "Butter Buns" and "Round Two".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Heavyweight
Freestyle (UK), 2013. New Copy
A definite heavyweight set from Frootful – one that's every bit as funky as before, but which also shows the group picking up some new flavors too! At the core is some tight deep funk energy that makes the whole thing crackle – and there's also a great blend of different soulful ... CD
Saturday Shifting
Wah Wah 45s (UK), 2013. New Copy
Gene Dudley's a one-man operation here – but he handles a surprising range of instruments, and comes up with a groove that easily rivals some of the funkiest combos out there working today! In a way, Gene's a bit like Shawn Lee – one of the few folks able to get a real funk sound out ... CD
Mocambo/Legere (Germany), 2009. New Copy
A fantastically funky full length set from Gizelle Smith – a hell of a great singer who's really been winning our ears with her funky 45s – now stepping out with an even more badass sound in the space of this album! Gizelle's groove is right up there with the hippest female singers in ... CD
Tortured Soul
Timmion (Finland), 2013. New Copy
Smoking soul from Nicole Willis – one of our favorite funky females of the past decade or two! Nicole's been making great records for awhile, but she really knocks it out of the part with this killer set – grooving hard with the Soul Investigators, in a raw raw groove that really gives ... CD
Closer To The Moon
Real Self (UK), 2013. New Copy
Continuing genius from keyboardist James Taylor – exactly the kind of set that supports all the faith we've had in his music over the years! James steps out here in a vibe that's very different than before, yet every bit as great – still keyboard-heavy, with plenty of Hammond – ... CD
Power Struggle
Record Kicks (Italy), 2013. New Copy
Smoking Afro Funk from down under – played by a tight combo from Sydney who rival the best of the contemporary global underground! The horns here are very powerful – not a "struggle" but more of a blast of righteous energy that really puts the group firmly on the map – ... CD
Ubiquity, 2013. New Copy
A really wonderful collaboration between Shawn Lee and Adrian Quesada – and a set that maybe goes further than a lot of recent work from the artists on their own! Quesada's ear for the psychedelic mixes wonderfully with Lee's funky grooves – in a space that's as trippy as it is soulful ... CD
Play It Again
Keep On Boppin (Netherlands), 2008. New Copy
Funky grooves from Basque country – an unlikely location, but one that turns up some surprisingly great work from this sharp-edged little combo! The Cherry Boppers have a name that might be a little hokey, but they hooked us in right from the start with their tight version of classic funk ... CD
13 Degrees Of Reality
Now Again/Stones Throw, 2013. New Copy
If this is reality, lead us onward – as the set is a mindblowing batch of trippy psych-funk from The Heliocentrics – even more offbeat and experimental than before, in ways that make the combo the true heirs to the legacy first begun by Stark Reality! The album's definitely funky at ... CD
Crossing
Daptone, 2012. New Copy
Sublime work from one of the coolest funky combos around – a group who aren't content to just hit the same funky styles as other outfits – and one who really stretch strongly in their pursuit of new sounds! The set's definitely funky – especially on the drums – but there's ... CD
Budos Band III
Daptone, 2010. New Copy
A great third album from Staten Island instrumental funk titans The Budos Band – who've brought eclectic inspiration all along and have always colored from a much broader palette of styles than most of their peers – going even further this time out and delivering their best yet! The ... CD
Faithful Man
Truth & Soul, 2012. New Copy
Smoking soul from the mighty Lee Fields – and a set that really has him getting back to his roots, as well! The record's billed as a follow-up to the previous My World – but it's got a style that's much more deep soul, much more southern-tinged than that great record – a ... CD
