Do it sound good? Do it feel good? Well if it sound good and it feel good then it’s musical, ain’t it? And if it look good too, then, it’s a collector’s 45 box set of some of the most famous singles ever dropped on the minister of the new super heavy funk’s very own People’s Records imprint ain’t it? In a deluxe limited edition embossed box set no less. Yes, it’s deluxe reissue label Get On Down with For The People Pt 1 – featuring massive, classics from the big man himself (Escape-ism pts 1 and 2) plus numbers from Maceo & The Macks (Cross The Tracks/ Soul Of A Black Man), Fred Wesley & The JBs (Same Beat pts 1, 2 and 3), Lyn Collins (Think (obviously)/ Ain’t No Sunshine) and The Devils’ X-Sorcist and Hip-hug Her. Yours for quite a princely sum, admittedly – but you can’t put a price on the funk.
