Black Music Explosion: Soul and Funk Classics from the Soulful 70's

What an album! A solid collection of rare, collectible and hit Northern Soul and Philly Sound.

Funk was a heavier, more radical expression for a time during the 70's when funk took soul, ripped it apart and put it back together - the wrong way around. It took the all-important beat and switched it from the up to the down, from the high hat to the bass-drum, from the 2nd and 4th beat to the 1st and the 3rd beat.
For a short, glorious time in the 70's, soul shook hands with funk and we all took notice...
