Various Artists: We Got The Fund; The Best of Funk (BMG Special Products).

BMG has a well-earned reputation for low-priced, well-packaged compilations of hard-to-find goodies. We Got The Funk continues this trend with a cross section of 1970s and early 1980s hit singles (Tom Browne's "Funkin' For Jamaica (NY)") as well as influential but lesser-known album cuts and instrumentals (Nite-Liter's "Con-Funk-Shun," The Breckerer Brothers' "Skunk Funk" and Bernard Wright's "Funky Beat"). Treats by the mostly forgotten Quazar ("Funk 'N' Roll (Dancin' In the Funkshine") and the legendary The Memphis Horns ("What The Funk") alone are worth the purchase price.
