Oh yeah, a bunch of funky odds and ends. The songs below were tucked away on a post at DK Presents, which has been dormant since 2011. Culled from what they're calling 20 Lost Funk Gems. Although they're not all what you'd probably consider straight up funk, they are funky and most of them are alien to me, so yeah, I'm on it. Gotta learn something today.
The band above is Rasputin's Stash, a bunch of Chicago area studio guys. I read somewhere that Beck sampled their song "Mr. Cool", which means absolutely nothing. The intro is a crack up, particularly at the end when the guy mutters "Oh, d'yeahhh". And, I'll tell you, this guy Mr. Cool thinks he's some pretty hot shit, but "no jive, gimme five"? I cry bullshit on that, There are holes in his resume, not the least of which is claiming to be the first man on the moon,...in a satellite. But, the horns, the organ, and the fuzz, make up for the implausibilities. It is a funky hoot. The best of the lot though is the Sahara All Stars' "Take Your Soul", an insanely thick seven minute groove that you don't want to end. Serious,
