Bay Area Funk - Funk & Soul From San Francisco, Oakland And The Bay Area 1967-1976 Vol.1
(Luv'n'Haight/Ubiquity Ref. LHCD043 / LHLP043, 2003) Selected by Marcus Buchanan

Les californiens de Ubiquity/Luv N' Haight/Cubop sont excusez-moi du peu les spécialistes du rare groove dans le coin de San Francisco. Alors quand ils se mettent en tête de collecter vraies les raretées funk et hard soul de la baie de SF de la période 1967-1976, nous dénichant au passage des perles issues de vieux 45t de deep grooves, heavy funk et autres riffs psychédéliques totalement inconnus ici, on se jette dessus de suite. Quand on sait qu'il a fallu des années pour trouver tous les ayants droits ou leurs descendants afin de présenter dignement ces gateaux fourrés à ras-bord de pur latin rock soul blues jazz funk d'époque, on laissera tomber pour cette fois la compile Dj Abdel et les autres âneries de funk eighties rutilant et horripilant habituelles.
