Psych Funk Of Black Merda

(reissue)
Late October, 2014 (delayed)

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 11

A collection of ultra rare material from the mighty Black Merda and affilliates – including early work credited to The Soul Agents (a pre-cursor to Merda) and solo credits for lead singer VC L. Veasey! Psych Funk is a very apt description to pretty much all of the music in the set – with that sinister guitar groove, funky bass and rollicking drums. The vocals range from the soul funk school – especially the couple of tracks sung by Linnie Walker (the sister of Black Merda members Charles and Anthony Hawkins) – to more psychedelia-learned phrasings – not unlike early Parliament! Tracks include an alternate versions of the Black Merda tunes "Cynthy-Ruth" and "Reality", "People Let Me Know" and "Darn Well" featuring vocals by Linnie Walker, the Soul Agents excellent funk version of "Foxy Lady", and the VC Veasey tracks "Do Nothing Wrong" and "Original Man".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A wealth of funky instrumentals – never issued before!

Funky Delicacies, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Great stuff – and the only truly funky album that Ike Turner ever recorded!

Excellent compilation of tight funky New Orleans tracks by the great Eddie Bo.

Excellent work from New Orleans soul legend Allen Toussaint – and a set that may well be his funkiest album ever!

Polydor, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
One of Roy Ayers' biggest albums ever! The whole thing's an incredible album of mellow jazzy soul – and it shows Roy at the crossroads, perfecting his earlier funk style with a sweet mellow R&B edge, getting a bit slicker, but still staying on the righteous path, and opening up a whole ...

Casablanca, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
Ahhhhh . . . By this point, George Clinton and the P-Funk team were on top of the world!

People, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
An oft-overlooked gem from the JBs – their last album for People Records, and a stone funk classic that's every bit as essential as the others!

Chocolate City
Casablanca, 1975. New Copy (reissue)
An amazing album that's probably one of the most unified albums that George Clinton ever recorded!

The funkiest album ever recorded by Lyn Collins – a stone solid set that really lives up to the legacy of her funky 45s!

An incredible album – a landmark piece of funk that nobody should be without, funk fan or not!
