It isn’t often that we focus an album from a label not directly affiliated with Stones Throw or Now-Again, but this comp Psych-Funk 101 was just too up our alley to let slip by. Egon helped out with the licensing of some tracks for this album, the definitive survey for students of the global phenomenon of psychedelic funk music, covering the “golden years” of the movement, from approximately 1967 until 1980.
Think about it for a second – what musical forces were greater than that of funk and psychedelic music in the late 60s and early 70s? These forces, combined by bands happy to incorporate folk music and improvisational elements from other musical forms, lead to an amazing body of work still being unearthed by researchers the world over – and still capable of inspiring new investigations into shapes of rhythm.
