An incredible tribute to legendary New York radio DJ Frankie Crocker – served up with some of the best groovers from his landmark show in the 70s! The package stands well enough as a funky soul compilation on its own – and is a brilliant document of the New York sound a it moved into the disco years, especially in the way that groups were tightening things up a bit more than before, yet still keeping it real. As the set moves on, it showcases a few more club classics – of the sort that Crocker helped to break big near the end of the decade – but even these are far deeper than the kind of hits you might expect from a package like this. The set features notes on Frankie's career, and the individual tracks – and the CD features a few snippets of old radio ads for Crocker's show, plus 24 titles that include "She's For Real" by The Dynamics, "Forget That Girl" by Jeanne Napoli, "Party Music" by Pat Lundi, "Feel The Need In Me" by Genya Ravan, "Soul On Your Side" by Rhythm Maker, "3 Minutes To Hey Girl" by George Kerr, "Pillow Talk" by Bunny Sigler, "Make It With You" by The Whispers, "Casanova" by Coffee, "You're My One Weakness Girl" by Street People, "Tell Him For Me" by Louis Williams, "Brother On The Run" by Adam Wade & Johnny Pate, "Do What You Feel" by The Rimshots, "Going To See My Baby" by Fatback Band, "Looking For A Brand New Game" by Eight Minutes, "Let Your Heart Be The Judge" by Gods Gift To Women, and Frankie Crocker's own funky 45, "Ton Of Dynamite"!
