FUNk1

Raw funk from the mid 1960's to the early 1970's. This sound is still being recorded today by various groups around the world! This is a period when the effects of standardization were either nonexistent or very weak. Most the various competing sounds were locally developing in uniquely different urban centres throughout the United States, the U.K. and Nigeria. We feature many examples of such. All the same the profound influences of JAMES BROWN and GEORGE CLINTON could be heard everywhere by the early 1970's. We've also included examples of that also!
