Funky Ghetto Getdown!

"This upload features tracks from Marvin Gaye, Edwin Starr, Earnest Jackson, Willie Hutch, Curtis Mayfield and more. SoulSistas And SoulBruthas! As we approach the heart of election season here in the USA, I'm reminded of how SOUL and FUNK music back in the day was so influenced by what was going down politically. The economics and every day experiences of the 'hood' were expressed as much in the music as was LOVE or having a good time. Not sure if that exists too much any more. Here's a selection of tunes loosely based on this theme. Some serious tunes here, but a real sense of joy in the quality of the musical expression as well."
