Heavy funk in a variety of cool colors - the first-ever collection of work from German sound library labels Golden Ring & Happy Records - and a real revelation to our ears! Grooves are plenty heavy throughout - lots of funky drums and burning basslines - with instrumentation that runs the gamut from choppy fusion to soundtrack-styled funk - often with lots of keyboards and guitar in the mix! The labels are almost a refuge for players who'd previously cut more famous funky work at the MPS label - artists who include Peter Thomas, Klaus Weiss, and Sigi Schwab, all of whom make some key appearances here - moving at the same great funky jazz pace they were hitting earlier in the 70s. Other artists are more obscure, but equally great - and the set's a true treasure trove of funky grooves you'll be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. Titles include "Present News" and "Jumping Balls" by Klaus Weiss, "Sound Colours A" by Peter Thomas, "Getting High" and "Get The Groove" by Sigi Schwab, "Mr Marco's Blues" and "Chicago Song" by Ralph Marco, "Open Up" and "Pick It Up" by Frank Mantis, "Late Train" and "Dark Alley" by Ken Aldin, and "Just Funky" by Klaus Weiss. © 1996-2009, Dusty Groove America, Inc.
