FMF x COS: World’s Funkiest Covers Contest

Today I have a special treat, I’ll be giving away a CD copy of the highly praised World’s Funkiest Covers from Cultures of Soul. I’ve written about it before, and it’s now finally available through better local record stores. The contest starts now, and will end on Tuesday December 6th.

All you have to do is follow Flea Market Funk on Twitter:


…..and check my Twitter stream for the question, then direct message me with the answer.

Here’s a track list of what the winner will be hearing:

1. Johnny Jones and the King Casuals – Purple Haze (Jimi Hendrix)
2. Mighty Mo and the Winchester Seven – The Next Message (Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five)
3. Afrosound – Jungle Fever (chakachas)
4. Fruko y sus Tesos – Bang Bang (New Swing Sextet)
5. Nostalgia 77 – Seven Nation Army (The White Stripes)
6. Ray Barretto – Pastime Paradise (Stevie Wonder)
7. Mongo Santamaria – Cloud Nine (The Temptations)

9. Ebony Rhythm Band – Light My Fire (The Doors)
10. The Johnny Frigo Sextet – Scorpio (Dennis Coffey)
11. Antibalas – Rat Race (Bob Marley)

Heavy, heavy covers! With listening parties all over the US, including a West Coast with O-Dub from Soul-Sides, this record has been well received.

I will pick one correct answer at random, and that person will win a copy of this great piece of music history, plus a few FMF Jimmy Smith stickers. It’s that easy. Looking forward to this. Stay tuned and Keep Diggin’!
