With the second in the Funk Spectrum series Keb Darge calls upon the one and only Kenny Dope Gonzalez to help him compile yet another inspirational funk album.

Kenny is not only a great record collector, especially of rare 45’s but the producer and general creator of some of today’s most exciting and successful music.

Here he has joined Keb to supply you the listener with just a small peak at some of the scenes rarest and funkiest treats.

A fantastic amalgamation of tracks from Willard Poseys combination cover of 2 classic tunes Cissy Strut–n-American Women to Rare Functions severely funky Disco Function.

Tracks like those by the Pleasure Seekers and Joe Coleman have a very definite Jazz edge to them and remind us that these compilations are indeed Spectrums, pushing the boundaries of terms such as Funk and including music for its quality above anything else.

This collection of songs will make you stop, listen and without a doubt start moving.
