Various Artists Cold Heat: Heavy Funk Rarities 1968-1974 Vol. 1
- Words: Rico "Superbizzee" Washington
- Label: Now Again
So far, Now Again has done a badass job of scouring the cellars and attics of the nation on the quest for long lost and forgotten sides of garage funk and soul. And with enough cold-blooded funk to make the meanest, sharpest pimp drop his Yankee Doodle stingy brim, this compilation follows tradition. There are enough tape hiss-heavy scorchers by L.A. Carnival, Carleen & The Groovers, Amnesty, and others to fill that black hole in your soul. Only flaw: NA's hot recent single-the Detroit Sex Machines' "Rap It Together/Funky Crawl"-is noticeably absent.
