Comment:

Not many surprises here (thus the Funk 101 label), but that's kind of the point; it's an introduction to 70s funk, made for a friend who claimed not to know anything about funk. The cuts are in rough chronological order. Yes, I did list Parliament and Funkadelic as two different bands, but technically they were, if only for legal reasons.

the meters are SO essential...more of them wouldn't hurt! :)
