Various - The Craig Charles Funk and Soul ClubFreestyle
You can count on Craig Charles as a certified messenger of the funk and his weekly radio show on BBC’s Radio 6 is testament to that. Throughout the nineteen track disc, Charles compiles some of the heavy hitters of today as they carry the baton of tasty funk with gritty grooves. There are many prime cuts to savor like “Seven Nation Army” by Nostalgia 77 featuring the soaring vocals of Alice Russell. “A Time For” is another taste of slow burning funk courtesy of Lack Of Afro. For instrumentals there’s The Haggis Horns “The Bump” and “Shaft In Africa” from The Mighty Showstoppers just to name a few. Don’t have the time hand pick your funk? No worries, Craig Charles’s selections will supply all the funk you need.
