Way more than just an anthology of work by Instant Funk – and instead a massive 2CD set that features all 6 of the group's albums for Salsoul! Instant Funk first came to fame as one of the key studio combos behind the sound of Philly
International in the mid 70s – but when the Salsoul/
Gold Mind imprint got rolling, the group moved over to that label and recorded a great run of hard-grooving albums! And while the "funk" in their name isn't the same sort as you'd imagine from deep funk or funky 45s, Instant Funk definitely have a tightly-crafted sense of musicianship that made them one of the best groups working on the east coast disco scene in the 70s – an ability to focus in on a groove and ride it out over a range of tasty riffs and changes! The massively overstuffed package begins with the first solo outing from Instant Funk in 1977, and runs right up to their lesser-known 80s gem Kinky – a whopping 29 long clubby tracks that include "Crying", "I Got My Mind Made Up", "Don't You Wanna Party", "Slap Slap Lickety Lap", "Witch Doctor", "The Funk Is On", "It's Your Love On My Mind", "Can You See Where I'm Coming From", "Looks So Fine", "No Stoppin That Rockin", "Blazin", "Don't Call Me Brother", "Passion", "Funkiest Party In The World
", and "It's Cool".
