Any Major Funk Vol. 1

December 26th, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

This mix might come in time for your New Year’s Eve party: great disco/funk tracks from the glory years, 1978-82. The songs should fit on a CD-R.

I’ve tried to stay clear of the usual fare offered disco samplers, so no synth-driven Euro disco, no Bee Gees, no Alicia Bridges, and damn well no Village People or Boney M. This mix is not supposed to encourage the “hilarious” donning of Afro wigs, white suits and other such hi-jinx as doing the Travolta SNF pose. This is for people who take the funk and disco seriously and groove to it joyously.

1. Odyssey – Going Back To My Roots (1981)
2. Cheryl Lynn – Got To Be Real (1978)
3. Raydio – It’s Time To Party Now (1980)
4. Billy Ocean – Stay The Night (1980)
5. Shalamar – A Night To Remember (1982)
6. Skyy – Here’s To You (1980)
7. One Way feat. Al Hudson – Push (1979)
8. Positive Force – We Got The Funk (1980)
9. Fat Larry’s Band – Act Like You Know It (1982)
10. Jimmy ‘Bo’ Horne – Spank (1978)
11. Sharon Brown – I Specialise In Love (1982)
12. Tom Browne – Funkin’ For Jamaica (1980)
13. The Whispers – Let’s Go All The Way (1978)
14. Hi Gloss – You’ll Never Know (1981)
15. Sister Sledge – He’s The Greatest Dancer (1978)
16. Webster Lewis – Give Me Some Emotion (1979)
17. Leon Haywood – Don’t Push It, Don’t Force It (1980)
18. Rodney Franklin – The Groove (1980)

    I’ve been listening to this for weeks! Every track is totally awesome… And the mix is great – it’s definitely more than the sum of its parts. Thank you so much. How about “Any Major Funk Part 2”??

    Hi DudeI confess that I actually found Any Major Funk II first, which is wonderful, but this is sublime.Every single track is worth listening to and I just can’t stop playing it.Please consider releasing volume 3 soon (and could I humbly suggest Gary’s Gang – Let’s Love Dance Tonight + Gonzales – Haven’t Stopped Dancing Yet might be worth considering).Thanks for all your hard work.RobinPS. Is there a story behind the Steely Dan title?
