What It Is! Funky Soul And Rare Grooves (1966-1977) - Various Artists on Limited Edition Colored 25 x 7" Vinyl Box Set

25 Slabs of Serious Funk from the Vaults of Atlantic, Atco, Warner Bros. & Josie Records Housed in a 7" Record Carrying Case Box!

Singles include the Original A & B Sides with All Original Labels & Sleeves!

Funk emerged in the 1960s, a scorching sound that amped up the legacy of R&B and doo-wop in spirit and sonic intensity, and became the precursor of hip-hop - which in fact revived funk for a new generation via sampling. While major artists topped the charts with funk hits throughout the ’60 s & ’70s, there were, “hundreds of smaller songs,” notes music journalist Oliver Wang in his liners, “for whom ‘airplay’ rarely got better than hissing out of a rusted jukebox...or crackling through the static on AM radio.”

What It Is! celebrates this heady, groove-heavy strain of “gut bucket funk” that remains a major force in American music. A 25 x 7" vinyl compendium that would take incalculable hours to collect in dusty bins at disappearing record shops, this box is culled mostly from the treasure-filled vaults of Atlantic, Atco, Warner Bros. and Josie Records. It’s an unprecedented “shadow history of funk,” pulling together rare sides from well-known artists and definitive funk grooves from lesser-known but supremely gifted masters of the art form alike!
