What it is! funky soul and rare groove (1967-1977)
Sounds of the 70s recommends this great 4cd box as a splendidly packaged christmas gift of juicy rare groove, digitally remastered
extract from the publisher website (Rhino):
"A four-CD, 91-track compendium that would take incalculable hours to assemble from dusty bins at disappearing record shops, What It Is! is culled mainly from the treasure-filled vaults of Atlantic, Atco, and Warner Bros. Records. It's an unprecedented shadow history of funk, pulling together rare sides from well-known artists and definitive grooves from less-known but supremely gifted masters of the art form.
Deluxe packaging houses a massive booklet with rare photos, liner notes, and track-by-track commentary."
Grab it for less than 40€ on amazon.co.uk
