The Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club Vol.5Ladies and gentleman – Volume 5 of my Funk & Soul Club compilations is something of a milestone – so let me take you through just some of the highlights in my latest trunk of funk which also includes some 100% exclusive tracks not available anywhere else:

The Traffic have a knack of rendering well known sounds into a re-grooved grooves – and their contribution is a crispy, deep fried instrumental version of the Rick James classic Super Freak! The Andy Tolman Cartel make musical time travel a reality – because when I’m listening to You What! I’m transported back to the early 70’s and chasing crooks down alleyways because I’m in a TV cop show!

The recently departed Charles Bradley – the screaming eagle of soul, was a man who had it tougher than most. He spent decades as James Brown impersonator, a homeless person on the unforgiving streets of New York City before signing Daptone Records aged 62. I have included his beautiful track Change For The World as my tribute to him. Tanika Charles gorgeous Endless Chain proves that Canada’s soul scene is a firing as anywhere else right now. Stir into the mix The Niteshifters’ slice of NY style delicious disco Show Me What You’ve Got and a new exclusive Body by Kylie Auldist, we have all your disco demands covered.

Carleen Anderson is a genuine legend, James Brown said She’s not just good, she’s phenomenal and Begin Again from her recent remarkable solo album Cage Street Memorial, is a beautiful gospel and jazz tinged slice of acoustic alchemy that will sooth your soul.

We give you gritty organ grooves from The Scone Cash Players, The Filthy Six and legend Brian Auger, rocking rhythm & soul from The Hawkmen, ultra rare afro funk from Ginger Johnson & His African Messengers, neo Northern from Nicole Willis, stonking rap & soul from The Allergies and Lack Of Afro too.

I have gone all out to bring together the baddest, most boom bap beats, the deepest funk, the sassiest soul and gorgeous grooves to put a shake in your shimmy and a wiggle in your walk here’s to volume 6! – Craig Charles
