Brothers On The Slide – The Story Of UK Funk 1969-1975

CD (Item 586489) Sanctuary (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD


A long-overdue set – one that finally gives credit to the huge amount of British funk artists from the 60s and 70s! A few of the names on this set are ones that you'll recognize – and given that some of the artists in the package sold a fair bit of records in the US, we can bet that there's a few here that will have you saying "No really – they're British?" And to that, we can only reply "yes indeed" – and give thanks to compilers Bluey, Quentin Scott, and Jon Newey for reminding us that back in the day, England was a pretty well trusted outlet for harder-hitting soul music! In fact, given the post-colonial shifts of the time, and the range of West Indian and African influences that were percolating on the London scene, it could almost be said that the grooves here were even farther-thinking than those in the US. But as you'll also hear on the set, the main focus here is on tight, in-the-pocket funk tracks – those that stand neck and neck with the best American funk hits of the time – and including more than a few that have been samples heavily over the years! CD features 18 tracks in all – with titles that include "Funky Like A Train" by The Equals, "Super Bad" by Jabba, "No Way" by Gonzalez, "Uphill Peace Of Mind" by Carol Grimes, "The Vulture" by Labbi Siffre, "Ole" by The Funkees, "Comin Atcha" by Madeline Bell, "Woman To Woman" by Joe Cocker, "Sideway Shuffle" by Linda Lewis, "Person To Person (demo version)" by Average White Band, and "Brothers On The Slide" by Cymande.

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.
