Various Artists Bay Area Funk 2
- Words: Justin Hopper
- Label: Luv N‘ Haight
Sometimes it seems as if rare funk weren't a limited-supply fossil fuel, but something that appears whenever Ubiquity subsidiary Luv N' Haight snaps its crate-digging fingers. How else could the world have previously missed out on pre-ConFunkShun band Project Soul's party groove "Ebony," or Northern soul diva Mary Love's chunk of funk "Born to Live With Heartache?" To be cherished above all others, however, is San Francisco T.K.O.'s driving soul-funk drug-ode workout, "Acid Lady"-worth the price of admission alone, and making this one of the funk comps in a year that will certainly see more than its fair share.
