I’ve been mucking about with Spotify.

I’m not completely sure if it is that useful and I can’t really see a great deal of difference from Last FM Radio.

The playlists do seem like a good way of sharing stuff you’re listening to and, hopefully develop it a bit.  Unfortunately music in Spotify is limited to say the least. In my first attempt at a playlist I’d say about 50% of the stuff I wanted to use is missing.

Anyway I bring you the gift of Funk. It’s a collaborative list so feel free to add stuff that you think might fit. Please don’t dump whole albums in there. I’ve tried to plan this a bit with songs that do fit together.

The list is:-

Spirits Up Above – Rahsaan Roland Kirk
What-cha Feel is What-cha Get – The Wallace Brothers
This Time (I’m Gonna Try It My Way)  – DJ Shadow
Save Me – Wanda Davis
It’s Just Begun – The Jimmy Castor Bunch
Give Up The Funk (Tear the Roof off the Sucker) – Parliament
Miss Kane – Donald Byrd
Superstition – Stevie Wonder
Power of Soul – Idris Muhammad
Color Me – People in the News
Higher Ground – Stevie Wonder
Cosmic Funk – Lonnie Liston Smith
One Nation Under a Groove – Funkadelic
Reasons – Minnnie Riperton
Spear For Moondog, Part 1 – Jimmy McGriff
Omuti Tide – Fela Kuti
Up for the Down Stroke – Parliament
Pick Up the Pieces – The Funk Groove Connection
Afro Strut – The Nite-Liners
Hang Up Your Hang Ups – Herbie Hancock
Luv N’ Haight – Sly & the Family Stone
Starsky & Hutch – The James Taylor Quartet
If There’s Hell Below (We’re All Going to Go) – Lou Donaldson
Funky President (People it’s Bad) – James Brown
