Comment:

Regular listeners of my mixes will know I tend to throw in a couple of Soul Stompers in each of my Mixed Genre mixes. I hadn't as yet, though, attempted a full-on Soul-Funk mix, so a couple of days back I decided to rectify that wrong. It soon became apparent there were too many tracks I just had to include so the Single disc became a double. So here it is, 50 cuts so infectious you won't know what day it is. So let me remind you, it's Funky Sunday. So do what Gilbert did & get down!
Just a quick note: The Tyrone Davis track appears on a mix of mine for a third time ( fourth if you count The Wonder Years 1969 ). Apologies, but it's just so damn good. Oh, and if you haven't worked out already, that's an altogether different `Tool' on tk1...

Thanks for the links! I Especially like the 2nd half. You are right about that Tyrone Davis tune; definitely great; as is the closer by William DeVaughn.

I'm definitely going to wrigle by butt to this juicy fruit -- as soon as I download it that is (it will only take my computer about 10 hours on my speedy dial-up connection). This does look phenomenal. So much cool stuff: the Sylvers, Nicole Willis, Trammps, YHU, Alzo & Udine, Commodores, Sly Stone, Tyrone Shoelaces... Everything you do is gonna be funky!

This 'un is going into heavy rotation. Serious soul Sammy and, as Anthony says, there are too many favorites to list.

Super! Always loved that Arthur Conley track (one used to be the bad boogaloo). Top picks among ones that were new to me: Betty Wright "Shoorah, Shoorah" and NW + SI "The Invisible Man." A major accomplishment, my man.

Was going to ask if that "Maceo" was THE Maceo of the Famous Flames, but after listening I gotta say it is.

More funk than you can shake a stick of gum at!!
Mix of the Week hands down. I would have chosen it myself but I could not find the secret door to the cabal. I'll have to ask either DJ Karen or Mark P. Did you know that chewing gum can enhance the breasts?

good lord, Sam this is good. I've only made it through disc one so far, but will put #2 on tomorrow, can't wait. favorites a'plenty: Tool, Alzo & Udine, Ronnie Hudson, Ike & Tina, Marlena Shaw, The Meters (what a glorious organ!), Incredible Bongo Band, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings. yes, that's quite obviously a different Tool, and I'm betting your Esther Williams isn't the synchronized swimmer I've seen in the movies. let me be the first, er... the twenty-first to congratulate you on Mix of the Week for this incredible hunk of soul.

I'm gonna put your comment tally into triple digits if I don't stop soon. but wanted to chime in about disc two. loved the Eugene McDaniels->Darondo->Chakachas bit. the Nicole Willis & the Soul Investigators and Betty Wright tunes also stood out. One of your best collections, Sam.

I'd love to trade for a copy of this mix. I've posted a couple of older funk mixes that you might like. I also have a ton of older funk and soul tracks that I'd be happy to swap, so please let me know.

Cheers!

This may be the best mix ever made. These things are so hard to quantify (he he). I will not warble on in florid scriptoform, no not I.If I had made this, I would remain smug for a ludicrous length of time. Yes, yes I would. Go on Sam, bask in it -- you deserve to. It's freakin' marvelous!

I did my first soul/funk mix myself yesterday and I'd love your feedback since you're the expert on the matter in here. Check my profile.
