Track 15 - Take Me To The Next Phase Pt.1 / The Isley Brothers

Plenty of funky classics feature on Volume 4 with "The Payback", "Got To Give It Up Pt.1", "If You Want Me To Stay" and "Hollywood Swingers" among the tracks that have been sampled or used in television and film many times before. Bootsy Collins makes an appearance on the wah wah and horn groover "The Pinocchio Theory", "Shake Your Rump To The Funk" never fails to please and The Isley Brothers are a welcome addition. This compilation has a consistency to it that is somewhat missing from Vol.5 and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The remaining volumes will be posted in the next few days.
