Any Major Funk Vol. 7

Here is the seventh CD-R mix in the Any Major Funk series. It might have been called Any Major Disco, but that would have been (equally) misleading, with expectations of Saturday Night Fever, Munich Machine or, eek, Ethel Merman doing disco. So these mixes are not quite funkadelically funky, but the funk and the brand of disco spearheaded by Chic are the influences that dominate these mixes.

And because these mixes, all of which are timed to fit on standard CD-Rs, previously came without covers, I have homebaked a selection, a collage of which you will see at the end of the post.

I”m posting this mix on the 33rd anniversary of the Comiskey Park disco records burning action, on 12 July 1979 ““ as chance would have it, also a Thursday. I wrote about it previously in “The Disco Inferno”.

    The link to Any Major Funk, Vol. 4 is dead.

    Thank you for this series, I somehow missed all of the other posts. Disco still sucks but I like the funky stuff, and I will admit that Chic (and Donna Summer) were very good at what they did. I’ll be downloading all of these and I only see four or five songs that I don’t like so I compliment you on your good taste.

    Our lass would disagree with you there most vehemently, Andy, disco, erm, rocks (sudden “Rock and Roll Could Never Hip-Hop Like This” earworm). I disagree too, just not as vehemently.

    However, normally me downloading a new mix from the Dude is a cue for rolling eyes in our house – well, if it’s country – but this went down really well. Dude for the win.
