Since 1993, Soul Patrol Records have established themselves as an indisputable reference when it comes to "Funky-Soul" music. Almost a trademark within the genre, it made its name providing compilations of obscure tracks originally released on 7-inch records. Soul Patrol pays tribute to artists who, while they were unable to earn a living making their music, certainly deserve to be considered iconic in the realm of Funk and Soul. Today, Soul Patrol strikes stronger than strong with Funkhouse Express which features ten rare tracks from the 60's & 70's. Like the previous compilations, Funkhouse Express highlights some that are gems that are now re-discovered, some that are surprises and some that are "ear-openers" such as The Pacers' "You'll Never Know," the ultra-efficient "Why Won't You Say" by The Chantells, and "We're Gonna Make It" by New World. Welcome to the Black Power sound, when Soul music reflected political violence and misery and where dignity and freedom reign above all. Limited to only 500 copies this LP is a true classic and we guarantee that it won't leave your record player!
Hard-edged grooves from Soul Patrol Records -- their umpteenth comp of this nature, and every bit as funky as the others! As before, most of the cuts here are from the funky 45 underground of the late 60s and early 70s -- the kind of deep funk numbers that the overseas collector set was digging many years back -- heavy drums, blasting horns, choppy guitars, and all the things that make funky grooves so great! Titles include "Ghost A Go Go" by Richard Rome, "Spin It Jig" by Smokey Brooks, "Follow The Rainbow" by Thomas East, "House Of Fun & Love" by Sweet Mixture, "Mother Duck" by The Georgia Soul Twisters, "Guts" by The Prolifics, "Jason Pew Mosso" by The Interpretations, and "You'll Never Know" by The Pacers.
