Funk Marathon Volume 4


My roomate hates hip hop. Once in awhile I give him a break. A long break., such as 9 hours and 46 minutes of solid funk instead. Anything is worth doing is worth doing thoroughly, like 141 continuous tracks in a row thoroughly. I’m a fan of all kinds of music save perhaps Verizon’s god awful smooth jazz while customers stay on hold for 20 minutes. I should get a new job as the hack who picks waiting music for the corporate world. People could rock out until the supervisor comes on to confirm that yes indeed, you really ARE shit-out-of-luck-sir. On a less cynical note, I figure you funk diggers will recognize some of the gems here. Hopefully you’ll come across alot of new cuts. Most of the selections here are 70’s tracks but there are a few earlier and later songs too. Turn this compilation up at the barbeque, on your headphones while you drift in cyberspace, while you hang onto the wheel 9 hours in traffic. If you love funk as much as I do Funk Marathon Volume 4 will keep you satisfied for a long time to come.
