2011 collection, an installment in the best-selling Super Funk series, containing 20 tracks of super-rare funk, 13 of them previously unreleased. Of the seven issued titles, Betty Gouche's is one of the most in-demand records of the moment. Also highly regarded is the Jim Pipkin, James Brown-alike 'Walking the Duck', while the Eternal Flames' record would set you back hundreds of pounds. The other four are in-demand and none could be bought for less than £100. The unissued tracks include an instrumental version of the break-beat classic 'I Got Some', perfect for producers wanting to swipe the beat. There's a strong chunk of Gospel funk from Dorothy Norwood, gems from the Music City and Dave Hamilton vaults and a scorching slice of southern fried sister funk 'Talk Is Cheap' by an unknown Soul singer.
