Funk 6 – Various Artists (Goldmine Soul Supply-GSLP 45)

I would have bought this on the strength of the cover alone, but this is a stone cold, super bad compilation of James Brown-inspired rough 1970s (and, I’m guessing by the raw sound, late 1960s) funk.  Though reminiscent of their Eccentric Soul series, a Numero Group comp this ain’t:  There is no information save for the titles, artists and writers.  Like Numero, however, this is seriously obscure, crate digger’s dream stuff: while I don’t claim to be a funk expert, I simply don’t recognise any of these performers, excellent as they are. Maybe you can recognise them here, where you will also note that the record was re-issued with a much less striking sleeve, perhaps to make it fit it with the rest of the series on CD.  Goldmine maintained some pretty high standards, given that this is the sixth installment; if the rest of the series is as good as this, I would highly recommend seeking them out.

Oh, can anyone tell me what the first word in the horizontal subtitle is?
