    Looks good. I'll order it tomorrow. Who put it together? Is it a legit comp from masters? The only familiar track to me is the nursery rhyme one done by the late sax player from War, Charles Miller.

  • I just saw this yesterday, was kind curious of it. What years and styles?

    styles are kind of all over the place from raw funk to sweet soul.. juno uk has some soundclips here

    It's kinda random and I don't believe it comes with any real liner notes or has been researched. Anyone know if it's legit?

    I heard the soundclips awhile back but was kinda unimpressed, especially for a comp that calls itself "Funky L.A.". I mean, there's just a lot of higher quality stuff to draw from.

    Maybe the clearance money spent explains the cover art.

  • Doesn't this include somethingby the Caprells, who I'm pretty sure were from Philly? Was this researched by the same people who put the Vibrettes in New Orleans??

    Minor correction. It looks like the Caprells were from Pittsburgh, PA and recorded in Philly. Still not LA, funky or otherwise...

    This track is goo but neither soulful or funky. It's kind of free sounding with a Last Poets style spoken word thing going on.

    Can anyone provide a tracklist?

    EDIT: I should of checked the link

    1. Wardell Howard - Down On My Luck Howard - "Down On My Luck"
    2. Charles Miller - Black Nursey
    3. Marie Adams - Get Up & Do It
    4. Bill Spencer - The Jacksons (Part 1)
    5. Bill Spencer - The Jacksons (Part 2)
    Side 2
    1. Blockbusters - Moody
    2. Soul Primers - Can't Resist (Part 1)
    3. Soul Primers - Can't Resist (Part 2)

    Considering the number of half-assed comps out there, this must be unfathomably bad.
