CD Reviews

Vintage Funk from the Vaults of Westbound ! ! !
Eddie Landsberg | Tokyo, Japan | 10/22/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Its hard to believe that The Ohio Players and Funkadelic were once label mates... with the exception of the Junie Morrison connection. And like Funkadelic and a lot of other groups that left that label for bigger fame, the band might have gotten more polished, but NOT more funky.Listen to this album to hear a band less dominated by Sugar's trademark voice and the trademark ARP string ensemble, but a very urban sounding funk band crossing various musical thresholds... the horns are agressive, Junie's organ sizzles... the tunes bump, the album covers titilate (wonder whatever happened to the bald chick ?)... There's nothing soft... Tune like Pain, Pleasure and the Funky Worm make you want to bump. If you like this album, keep an eye out for Junie's solo albums (which seem to go in and out of print) and other groups from that label including THE COUNTS, Funkadelic, Eddie Hazel and occasional WESTBOUND compilations !"

"I Just got this from Amazon and was floored by the Funk.I have most of their stuff from the Mercury Era but this Disc is Just as Tight.The Grooves are Just as Tight.Funky Worm&Pain Are Slamming.this Band was as Bad as any Group from Back in the day.there music is Timeless."
A great collection from Dayton Ohio's preZapp Prodigies

"Novices to the funk music scene, take note. Purchase this and the CD "Ohio Players Gold" in lieu of the double CD "Funk on Fire" (Which is not bad, just, more or less, has OP at their peak and declining years) and get all you need to know about phunkay sounds. Granted, they bit a little morsel or two from James Brown, Parliament, Sly, but hey! What 70's funk band didn't, I ask you? This collection has the early Junie Morrison influenced cuts, "Pain", "Pleasure", "Esctacy", and the hard to find cuts "Funky Worm" and "Varee is Love"--a last dance cut at many a blue-lighted basement house party. Plus, it boasts a cover with OP's famous bald model--the one who was apparently the fantasy of many a school boy crush...the Mercury Records album models were ok--especially for "Honey"--but they just weren't like this bald one. Anyway, get it from Amazon.com, now, and have fun with those great sounds and great cover!"
