Is this the best Dusty Fingers compilation ever? If it isn't then it sure comes close. From the beginning of the thunderous, heavy "Confunktion" the tone is set for a wild ride of rare groove, breakbeats, library music and more. Well known classics such as "Yama Yama" and Michel Gonet's "Flower Dance" are complimented by library gems from Louis Clarke, Nick Ingman and Larry Robbins along with an array of other delights. Every track has something special which makes it stand out, usually it's a particularly tight drum beat nestled within some pleasant orchestration or crime funk. These 15 tracks only run for a total of 38 minutes and if you are like me then you'll be reaching for the "repeat" button so you can experience the exceptional grooves again and again.

I remember 'Confunktion' from an ad in the 70's
