Various Movements 2: 15 Deep Funk Pearls
- Words: Justin Hopper
- Label: Perfect Toy
In the flood of funk and soul reissue compilations of late, Movements 2 stands out because of its seemingly complete lack of focus. Rather than concentrate on a region, label, producer, city or sound, Tobias Kirmayer's second volume of funk is simply Kirmayer's picks. It contains neither the most obscure nor the most historically vital funk 45s, and will likely leave some hardcore collectors smirking at previously reissued tracks like Funky Nassau's "Bahama Soul Stew" and Carlton Basco's "Don't Chain My Soul." But the more casual funk fan will find Movements 2 refreshing for the same reasons: Every track is finger-burning hot.
