Love Power Peace: Live At The Olympia, Paris, 1971. CD (1992)
Cold Heat: Heavy Funk Rarities 1968 - 1974, Vol. 1 buy CD music Recorded live at The Olympia, Paris, France on March 8, 1971. Includes liner notes by Daddy Cool.
Recorded in 1971 at L'Olympia in Paris, France, LOVE POWER PEACE is the only live recording with the original JB's backing James Brown. The hardest working man in show business and his original band go full force with jams that capture the genuine sweat of the Godfather Of Soul shuffling across the stage in a gold lame fury, flanked by half- naked dancers. With original JB's such as MC/organist Bobby Byrd and bassist Bootsy Collins, you can hear the superior musicianship that is required to keep time with James Brown's frenetic pace. Drummers Jabo Starks and Tiger Martin would play both kits at once to get the groove on, making abrupt tempo changes, as in the transition between "Brother Rapp" and "Aint It Funky Now," illustrating both their talent and the tightness of their groove. Blasting through a number of Brown's greatest hits--"I Got You (I Feel Good)," "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" and "Georgia On My Mind"--this release is a chunk of funk/soul history spotlighting Brown in his prime.

|Funky 16 Corners CD (2001) |
Cold Heat: Heavy Funk Rarities 1968 - 1974, Vol. 1 CD music This outstanding collection of funk singles compiled by Stones Throw Records includes 16 songs recorded between 1968 and 1974 by obscure underground groups from America. One of the strongest crossover funk labels of the last decade, Stones Throw pays due respect to modern music's forgotten grandfathers on this most grooving recorded history lesson of impeccable quality. Anchored by the Highlighters' classic "The Funky 16 Corners," whereby the Indianapolis group upped the ante in 1969's craze for bands counting "corners" (read: hit me three times!) by breaking the recorded benchmark with 16, this compilation leans heavily on the James Brown sect and celebrates the lesser-known groups of the genre, who with high talent and low budget put to tape some of the most raw funk ever captured to date. Representative modernist Cut Chemist of Jurassic 5 even gets an interpretation slot with "Bunky's Pick" on one of two bonus tracks. Every track is essential to the record and every groove a lost gem. An informative 16-page booklet with full-color photos is included. ~ Nic Kincaid
Recorded between 1968 & 2001. Includes liner notes by Egon.

Fire on the Bayou CD (1975)
Cold Heat: Heavy Funk Rarities 1968 - 1974, Vol. 1 songs The Meters released FIRE ON THE BAYOU shortly before embarking on the Rolling Stones' 1975 tour as an opening act. Essentially a love letter to the band's New Orleans hometown, the album also heralded the arrival of fifth member Cyril Neville, younger brother of keyboardist Art. His additional vocals added a soulful edge to songs such as the brassy "Out In the Country" and the crackling "Talkin' Bout New Orleans." Other numbers honoring the Big Easy include the choppily funky title track, a peppy cover of Jody Levens' "Mardi Gras Mambo," and the rollicking "They All Ask'd for You," a novelty song based on an old New Orleans lullaby.
Elsewhere, The Meters travel down some interesting creative avenues, notably in the cool ambiance of "Middle of the Road," an instrumental honoring guitarist Leo Nocentelli's jazz heroes, and a rhythmically rich cover of Argent's "Liar." Much of FIRE ON THE BAYOU is defined by all five members randomly slipping in and out of the rhythm, resulting in laid-back funk such as "Love Slip Upon Ya" and "Can You Do Without?" Less than two years after this seminal album, the Meters broke up; the Neville Brothers emerged from their ashes.
Worldwide CD debut of New Orleans funk classic originally released in 1975. Includes one bonus track 'Running Fast' (Long Version). 2000 release. Standard jewelcase.

|Texas Funk 1968-1975: Black Gold From The Lone Star State CD (2005)
Cold Heat: Heavy Funk Rarities 1968 - 1974, Vol. 1 album for sale As proven by the various locales that leading funk purveyors hailed from (Funkadelic from Detroit, Ohio Players from Ohio, Sly Stone from San Francisco, etc.), you cannot pin down one specific U.S. area as a hotbed -- or birthplace -- of funk. It appears as though every area had its own leading funk act(s), and Texas was chock-full of them, as evidenced by the exceptional compilation Texas Funk: Black Gold from the Lone Star State 1968-1975. Issued as part of an ongoing series by the Jazzman label (which specializes in compiling obscure funk standouts from specific areas -- Midwest Funk, etc.), Texas Funk is a gold mine for funk fanatics worldwide. Few, if any, of these artists will be well known to anyone outside of the Lone Star State, but it quickly becomes apparent that all these artists mastered the grooves from their James Brown records. Quite a few artists here replicate the style and approach of the Godfather of Soul to a T, namely the Latin Breed's "I Turn You On" and the Majestics' "Funky Chick," but others inject their own "thang." Standouts include Sunny & the Sunliners' "Get Down," Timothy McNealy's "Sagittarius Black," and the Vern Blair Debate's "Super Funk" (the latter of whose bandmembers also appear on the album cover) -- all of which could have easily fit on the Shaft soundtrack or an episode of Chico and the Man. And if the outstanding music wasn't enough, the CD booklet is 23 pages long -- crammed with pictures, info on each band, an intro by DJ Shadow, and also explorations of each Texas area that spawned funk bands. Texas Funk is an essential purchase for fans of first-wave funk. ~ Greg Prato
