Various Carolina Funk: First In Funk
- Words: David Ma
- Label: Jazzman
- XLR8R Rating: 9/10
From the folks that brought you Midwest, Texas, and Florida Funk, Carolina Funk offers up even more lost gems. This time, the obscure recordings have been scoured from the southeast, featuring unknowns like The Ultimates, The Black Exotics, and Wally Coco. The 22-tracker is a vibrant, sweat-drenched listen from start to finish. Roy Roberts’ “You Ain’t Miss It” and Frankie and The Damons’ “Bad Woman” are spirited, upbeat recordings that would make James Brown proud. The release comes packed with a full-color booklet explaining the tattered history behind the music and its makers. The sound quality is superb, the energy is through the roof, and the artists are all heart. This right here is real funk.
