Synopsis

Product Description
What the critics say: Genius compilation on the so far little know funk sound of Poland in the 70s! All Polish artists, you can tell the influences of black America but all given a Slavic twist. Kicking off with a track that Pablo fans may recognize, and continuing through funk, soul, disco and bossa styles this LP, compiled by the Polish DJ Team Super Soul Service will satisfy everyone but those with the dustiest knees! (Fat City, UK) A unique compilation of '70's rare groove from Poland, first time these are available after their initial release! A mix of jazz, funk, fusion, brazil type of sound & electronic output. Compiled by the Soul Service DJ Team from Poland. The record comes in a gatefold cover with linernotes on all the tracks. Check! (Rush Hours, Holland) Listeners familiar with our regional funk Jazzman albums from the US will be interested to see a similar album espousing the strength and diversity of funky jazz recorded behind the Iron Curtain in '70s Poland. Includes stuff from the highly-regarded 'String Beat' album, Novi singers and many others that are, as expected, completely unpronounceable. (Jazzman Records, UK) The Polish Soul Service DJ team have been digging in their crates and the archives of Poland's record labels to bring us this unique compilation of 70s rare grooves from their homeland. A mix of jazz, funk, fusion, Brazilian style grooves and electronic music, the album serves up a host of rare music from the East. For the majority of tracks, this is the first time they have been made available since their initial release! (Piccadilly Records, UK) A definite "unique selection" of grooves here -- not just because the rare tracks are all from 70s Poland, but also because most of them have never been reissued either! The package is a wonderful introduction to the kinds of grooves we've been digging from Poland for years -- that mad mix of jazz, funk, fusion, electric, and vocal elements that somehow managed to flourish wonderfully during the 70s years of Soviet control -- a real musical marvel, considering the setting -- and because of tight border control, very few of these tunes ever made it out to the west! The track selection differs a fair bit from the kinds of full length Polish jazz albums that have been released to date -- as many of the titles here are groovier, funkier, and more electric -- and in case you're wondering, there's also very little crossover with the Compost Polish jazz set from a few years back.
