Get this super Limited Edition Box Set Before They Disappear !!!
Twenty-Five slabs of serious funk from the vaults of Atlantic, Atco, Warner Brothers, Reprise and Josie records. Limited edition box set featureing twenty-five singles originally released between 1968-1977.
Funk emerged in the 1960's, a scorching sound that amped up the legacy of R&B and Doo-Wop in spirit and sonic intensity, and became the precursor of Hip-Hop: Which in fact revived funk for a new generation via sampling. While major artists topped the charts with funk hits throughout the '60s and 70s, there were hundreds of artists that never got their due. What Is It! celebrates this heady, groove-heavy strain of 'gut bucket' funk that remains a major force in American music. This 25 single boxed set that would take some serious cash to collect, if you could even find them in the dusty bins at disappearing record shops, is culled from the vaults of Atlantic, Atco, Josie and Warner Brothers Records. It's an amazing set, pulling together rare sides from well-known artists and definitive funk grooves from lesser-known but supremely gifted masters of the art form alike.
