Sister Funk 2 – The Sound Of The Unknown Soul Sisters – Compiled By Ian Wright (UK pressing)

CD (Item 537555) Jazzman (UK), 1960s/1970s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

A second great serving of all-female funk – and a collection that's arguably better than the now-legendary first volume in the series! Ian Wright's definitely outdone himself here – and the selection of work here is really really wonderful – with hardly any familiar names at all, save for a few smaller soul stars who are represented by some pretty obscure tunes! The vibe is hard and gritty throughout – but also plenty soulful too – and Ian doesn't sacrifice quality of the tune in pursuit of a rare piece of wax, so that the work is all top-shelf all the way through – a collection of female soul and funk artists who easily rival the biggest names from their generations! As usual with Jazzman, the whole thing's done with notes that are as careful as the track selection – and the CD features a total of 20 tracks that include "The Dance Man" by Keisa Brown, "Watch The Dog That Bring The Bone" by Sandy Gaye, "The Queen" by Big Ella, "Baby You're A Jive Cat" by Sheila Wilkerson, "Heartbreak Hotel" by Barbara Trent, "What I Did In The Street" by Barbara King, "Follow The Wind" by Coletta Woodson, "Sweet Sweet Baby" by Dolly Gilmore, "Take Me Baby" by Althea Spencer, "It's Not Too Late" by Cheryl Johnson, "If You Want Your Man" by Cheryl Dorsey, "I Don't Want Your Love" by Barbara Howards, "Muddy Waters" by The Fabulettes, and "Love Came Into My Life" by Florence Trapp.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Playoff (France), Mid 70s. Used
Classic funk all the way through – a killer collection of some of the best-remembered tracks from the 70s – all of which still have a hell of a lot of power all these many years later! This isn't a batch of obscure funky 45s, but nor is it the top 40 hits of the soul charts either ... CD

This very hip series just got a whole lot hipper – thanks to the selection talents of Brazilian soul legend Ed Motta – who serves up a huge host of rare tracks from Brazil! Ed's always had a deep love of the AOR sound of the 70s – and he's not only a great soul singer on his own ... CD

Stellar soul from Isaac Hayes – just the sort of overblown masterpiece that made his early solo work on Stax Records so great! The record features only 4 long tracks – all of which go on in that slow-building style that Ike forged at the time – a mode that takes a few simple ... CD
