Various 'Backstreet Brit Funk Vol. 1 - compiled by Joey Negro' 2xLP
A collection of rare and very sought-after underground British disco, funk and soul tracks avoiding the obvious hits that have been on a million cd’s already. Many of these tracks never went beyond a very small local release but have since become very collectable - buying this lot would set you back somewhere in the four figures.
Both Vol.1 (2010) and Vol.2 (2018) of the Brit Funk albums tell the story of the underground scene from the late 70’s through to the mid-80’s in the UK when punk and disco were giving way to a new blend of jazz, soul and funk, heavily influenced by the American big hitters of the day but re-worked by the UK pioneers for the British dance floors.
Both volumes contain a unique selection of high quality music, which will have a shelf life lasting well beyond the currents trends and fads. All tracks have been Cedared and re-mastered to a very high standard and now sound better than ever before.
Joey Negro re-edited some of the tracks for the original album, updating them with a fresh new approach. The 2CD which has been out of press for months has also been reissued to coincide with the LP release.
