This collection is subtitled "Raw Funk of '67-69!," and it lives up to that billing, with 22 hard-hitting funk tracks from artists who will be unknown to all but hardcore funksters. Well, maybe Andre Williams will be familiar to some, but that's it. This is funk with a pretty rippling and fast-tempoed guitar, horn and rhythm section, along the lines of the late-1960s James Brown band (as heard on both vocal and instrumental recordings) in particular, and also in the vein of less famous outfits like Dyke & the Blazers.It would be a great party disc for those who want to simultaneously get the guests dancing and impress all record collector friends in the room. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide

Thanks for this great re-up! You Have great taste (well, similar to mine!). It is a shame about dead links, if it's not too much of a pain can you please re-up Pow City Fabulous Shakers Soul Party?
Thanks again for all your effort. Cheers Paul
