The Big Payback - Deep Funk & Rare Grooves Classics vol.1
(Clubmasters 1998) Selected by Jon Williams

Oh! La belle boî-boîte. 4 CDs de 'deep funk & rare groove classics' pour... 115 Francs! Voilà qui est parlé. Je vous rappelle que le débat sur les mp3, les copies de CD, la parano sur l'horaire de la partie de tennis du directeur qu'il va falloir décaler en raison de la recrudescence des graveurs de CD, etc., n'aura aucune raison d'être si on n'essayait pas de continuer à nous (vous) refiler au passage des CD à 140 balles! Hum... 10 francs à fabriquer + les droits d'auteurs... Ça vous coûte si cher que ça à vendre vos 'productions' (allez, soyons polis pour une fois), ou alors ça vous rapporte tant que ça? Le débat se situerait plutôt au centre de ça. Ah! Pas facile le métier de distributeur. Il y en a qui finissent dans le métro à débiter des canettes... Bref. 'Welcome to the groove of the 70's underground - The sound of basements in Brooklyn, radios in Watts, humpin' and bumpin' in the Bronx. The REAL funk from smallass independant labels from the heart of the ghetto. The Big Payback!' Le son est à des années des prods dance actuelles, bien sûr, bien crachotant et saturé. En reggae on appelle ça roots. Si vous ne le trouvez, ce coffret est édité par Clubmasters/Sound and Media Limited, si vous tombez dessus, n'hésitez-pas. Dans la même collection les coffret Soul et Northern Soul... bon, ben faut aimer la soul.
