I'm usually not a big fan of funk, and even least of compilations. However, every track on this one is worth its share of gold. Robert Perllman does have the beats indeed.
Favorite track: Look At Your Brother.
"Perlman's got beats and it ain't no secret." - The Beastie Boys
This lyric might have slid right by you while you were listening to Ill Communication, but the Beastie Boys were not playing when they said that. Robert Perlman, a native New Yorker, was way ahead of the curve and would stockpile an arsenal of heavy duty vinyl way before the 45 record craze took over. This compilation of over a dozen tracks represents a taste of the fruits of his hard work uncovering these often overlooked gems.
Including some personal notes from the artists you can find on this compilation.
Thanks to Robert Perlman, Tobias Kirmayer at Tramp Records, Mike Mariconda, Jamison Harvey at Flea Market Funk, David Salas, Shane Hunt, David Brown, Bud Ross, Brittney and Georgia Allen, Shana Byas.

Early Yann Tiersen vibes: when it's joyful and sad at the same time. The sax sings pure and beautiful. The play on words is on point, but the rhythm actually has its personal warm feeling and wood-sound that takes you away to fantasy village dances.
One of those pieces you put in loop for days. Andrea Calligaris
