Various 'Can You Feel The Beat - Funk 45s and Other Rare Grooves' 2xLP
Funk was the syncopated groove that emerged in the mid-sixties through hits from James Brown and Dyke and The Blazers. It was a natural development out of rhythm and blues. Thousands of local bands tried to emulate Brown’s success, and in the process created a plethora of rare and sought after 45s and album cuts that have been mined by DJs and producers to fill floors or provide breakbeats. Whilst the 20 tracks on this compilation would cost you thousands of pounds to own on their original issue, that isn’t really the point. Instead you get to listen to magnificent grooves such as Mickey and The Soul Generations explosive Iron Leg, Andrew Brown’s blues tinged You Made Me Suffer or the message music of 24 Carat Black. Compiled by DJ and award winning compiler Dean Rudland, with stunning artwork from his long-time collaborators The Unknown.
