CD Reviews

From the funk and Soul era
Andre M. | Mt. Pleasant, SC United States | 08/10/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This one covers 1973-74, as funk and disco were becoming a part of Soul music. "Soul Makossa" livened up many a party at the time. "Jungle Boogie" (a distant cousin of "Soul Makossa") was a crowd pleaser from Kool and The Gang's "Wild & Peaceful," Lp, which was a prized possession in African-American neigborhoods at the time. William DeVaughns anthem to positive thinking "Be Thankful for What You Got" requires some repeated listening to fully understand, due to his thick-tounged delivery and the Chi-Lites, seldom heard "Stoned Out of My Mind" is about love, not dope. So it's okay to play this one around your kids."
