    why is every copy of "sweetback" so ring worn? Every one I've ever seen looks like that! weird, huh?

    the Ubiquity dude auctioned his off a while ago and his was pristine...but that is the only one I have seen not ring-worn, then again, I have only seen mine and one other.

    My list are truly my faves, but I also threw them in as a list of foundational material for any jazz funk enthusiast.

    for an obscure one, one I just picked up on reissue, real nice library jazz funk:

    mine are my favs also, not just flossin raers...I just got the roy but I have listened to it SO much since I got it, it instantly became a favorite..so fuggin good. George's "The Bump" is my fav jazz funk tune of all time...so far out. I got one of the ubiquity comps 5 or 6 years ago with "Sweetback" on it and I wore that thing out...his solo on there is so perfect. The Jimmy McGriff might be the only interchangable one on there...maybe with the Charles Kynard s/t on mainsteam...but whatta cover!



    that library looks cool, what year is it from?

    I think 1970
    the reissue is from 1999 - totally different(and much plainer)sleeve.

    I certainly didn't mean to imply that you were flossin'(not that there's anything WRONG with that) either,that Roy Meriwether sounds like a honey! Nice score.

    No can we get some other strutters to chime in? Surely these are not the be-all-end-all!

    that crybaby-organ solo on "Girl You Need a Change of Mind" is a real face-melter.

    Marc Moulin "Aria" / "Humpty Dumpty" / "Balek"
    Kool & The Gang "NT" / "Chocolate Buttermilk" / "Give it Up"
    Ramsey Lewis "Back in the USSR" / "Mighty Quinn"

    and how can we forget:

    "Nautilus" / "Take Me to the Mardi Gras"

    LOU DONALDSON: HOT DOG (one of my all-time favorites...)



    JIMMY MCGRIFF: SOUL SUGAR

    A lot of these are 2 trackers, especially the Ethiopian Knights haha. But badness nonetheless IMO.


    1967 might be a bit early but Where It's At is funky as hell.


    Na ta ka




    underrated?? title track is hip hop brainfreeze.




    Dizzy - Ozone Madness & Mancini - Barettas Theme

    This is pure niceness from top to bottom. Talk about your Monk Higgins productions, this may be my favorite of his.

    Can't believe no one posted this one yet:



    Completely unf**kwitable from beginning to end.

    I got this one laying around the house, but never gave it a proper listen. I'll have to bust it out tonight.

    A couple of these have been posted already, but these are my favorites:





    You're confusing "jazzfunk" with "spiritual jazzfunk".



    Ask Bizzo.

    spiritual jazzfunk".

    Ask Bizzo.


    My bad. I meant this is my favorite jazzfunk LP:
