On Your Marks, It’s Funk Marathon Stage 1


This is volume one from a six part series. I put these together years ago. The material is mostly 70’s funk, with a few exceptions here and there. You’ll recognize some well known samples, but there is also a fair amount of obscure music too. The idea with these long-play funk mixes was to fit as many dope tracks as I could onto a 700 megabyte cdr. I wanted all day compilations for driving, working and generally just grooving. There are distinct sections in each volume, so check them out thoroughly.
