Funky Asbury Park Mix

Funky Asbury Park

Last month I gave you the Saturday Night Waffle Mix, this month I’m throwing out a special nugget in light of the Asbury Park 45 Sessions at the World Famous Asbury Lanes on May 11th. Here’s the Funky Asbury Park Mix, a little gift from me to you here at FMF. Thanks for the support thus far, I really appreciate it! Thanks for all the kind words, suggestions, and for making this little thing I call Flea Market Funk a daily stop on the intranets (as my good friend Funky 16 Corners calls it!) for so many of you. I promise more good times are ahead, and if you’re in the Central NJ area next Friday night, I urge you to come out and see how we do it live.

On this particular mix we’ve got good representation, from the sweet Soul of The Persuaders, to some not so commercial tunes by the Meters, Kool and the Gang, and Curtis Mayfield. I’ve also thrown in a Stax gem from Booker T. and the M.G.’s, as well as some reissue/ reworked funk courtesy of Kenny Dope, a strong reissue from the geniuses at Luv N’ Haight Records, and some obscure Holland cats covering James Brown. But wait, there’s more. If you listen to the aforementioned tracks, you also get some Lou Courtney, Eddie Harris (plug me in!), and a dusty groove on Archives Records. Here’s the lineup:

The Persuaders – Love Gonna Pack Up and Walk Out/ Win or Lose
Soft Touch – Plenty Action / Luv N’ Haight
The House Band – (Givin Up Food) For Funk/ Dynamite Soul
Joe Tex – Papa Was Too/ Dial
Booker T. and the M.G.’s – Soul Clap ‘69/ Stax
Sammy Gordon & The Hiphuggers – Breezin’/ Archives
Curtis Mayfield – Mother’s Son/ Curtom
The Meters – Hey! Last Minute/ Josie
C and the Shells – Funky Tamborine (Part 1)/ Zanzee
Eddie Harris – Get On Up and Dance/ Atlantic
Andre Williams – Cadillac Jack/ Chess
Kool and the Gang – Funky Man/ De-Lite
Lou Courtney – Do the Thing/ Riverside
Double Trouble – People Are Changing/ Sure Shot
Outro: Bud Harper – Mr. Soul/ Peacock

Funky Asbury Park Mix All 45, All Live, All Fun-kay!

Enjoy your weekend all, I’m hoping to dig out some gold at my spot tomorrow, and I’ve got a few good ones lined up for review this week. Until then, enjoy the mix and Keep Diggin’!
