    a few

    Thought I'd chip-in on this one:

    Duralcha - Ghetto Funk. Love the stoopid vocal grunts in this one.
    The J.B's - All aboard the soul funky train. In fact any J.B's is worthy of this list.
    Marvin Gaye - Got to give it up (part one). Classic!
    Curtis Mayfield - Mighty Mighty (Spade and Whitey). Great live track - to me this is a classic.
    Sam & Dave - Hold on I'm coming.

  • A few more...

  • On a soul tip...

    ...you can't go wrong with the Reverend Al Green - "Let's stay together", "L.O.V.E.", "Tired of being alone", any of them really

    The funkiest moment ever recorded...

    ...would have to be about 20 seconds into the first track on the album

    Man-Child by Herbie Hancock

    It's called Hang Up Your Hang Ups and when the drums come in and things really start rolling...

    My Top 5

    It was hard to put them in any kind of order, but this is the way it went down:

    1. Curtis Mayfield - Freddie's Dead(I first heard the beat on the gangsta rap-group 5150 song Steady Stayin' Paid)
    2. Sugar Pie Desanto - Git Back (from the Bay Area Funk vol 1-comp.)
    3. Sugar Pie Desanto - Straighten It Out With Yo Man (from the Bay Area Funk vol 2-comp. Sugar Pie's voice is incredible and the choir-part in this song is very funky)
    4. Ohio Players - Funky Worm (This one doesn't need no explanations, I think)
    5. Curtis Mayfield - Pusherman (I first heard the Ice-T-version I'm Your Pusher, and I got to say that the original version is much much better. Don't get me wrong, at first I really warmed up for the Iceberg's version

    Changed my mind

    Herbie Hancock's still the man, but I have to revise/add to my post above:

    The intro to the Incredible Jimmy Smith's live recording of Root Down (and Get It) is unbelievable. And he's really only known as a jazz musician with some funky tracks!

  • O'Jays - Darlin' Darlin' Baby

  • fav soul track at moment

    came across 0-0-0-h child by the 5 stairsteps. love this track. a sample of it is used in 2pac's 'keep ya head up'. have heard the song in quite a few films including 'boyz in da hood' and 'crooklyn'. check it out on the 'crooklyn' soundtrack - thats where i finally found a copy to download. well worth it! zephora x
