There have been box sets on nearly every musical genre: Soul. Disco. Gospel. Doo-Wop. Rock & Roll. Swing. But no one has yet tackled the most influential music of the last 30 years – FUNK. Until now. Often dismissed as the danceable cousin of Soul and the ‘blacker’ version of Disco, Funk is now recognized as its own credible genre, with serious books on the subject – and legions of current bands in hip-hop, rock and fusion, from Red Hot Chili Peppers to Lenny Kravitz, Limp Bizkit to Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige to Madonna paying homage to the sound with covers, samples of favorite tracks and obvious influences in their own music. THE FUNK BOX is the best of the Funk from the heyday, 1970-1983, featuring hits from superstars and one-hit wonders alike. The thread connecting them all is the almighty groove – the one thing disco, synthesizers and commercial radio couldn’t kill. And the music on the 4-CD box sounds INCREDIBLE – all newly digitally mastered from best sources. FOUR FULL DISCS OF FUNK!!!
