It seems silly that I've come all this way and haven't posted a funk compilation before, so here it is! I tried not to spend too much time on this, just flicked through my itunes library and pulled out a bunch of my favourite songs. I think there is a good mix of instrumental/vocal and soulful/hard funk tracks with some well know numbers rubbing shoulders with slighter more obscure gems. I had fun putting it together so I hope you enjoy it!

Oh, fun, Mr. Craig! I have most of these songs scattered amongst many comps & drives, but am looking forward to your masterful segues :-)

Helpful hint to all downloaders - I've found zippyshare to be the best option, by far

I used "Tighten Up" on a compilation of (literal) Dance songs recently. You can check it out here if you like:

You might wanna check out my Fertile Crescent mix - it features some of the same artists as that "Obsession" compilation you uploaded a couple of months back. (I am one of 4 people who contribute mixes to the site...mine are posted by "Gearbox").

You're my favourite music blog! Thank you!
