Catchy Car-Wash Tunes

whiskyprajer

Country Funk 1969-1975 is a delightful reminder of more fecund cross-pollination. It seems the young country singers of the Age of Aquarius heard a sensibility they could strongly identify with in the funk records of their day, and thought, “I could do that!” It's a street-sensibility (“L.A. Memphis Tyler Texas” “Hawg Frawg”), a Gospel-sensibility (Link Wray's killer “Fire & Brimstone”), a “Leave me alone, I'm enjoying the Highway to Hell just fine” sensibility (“Stud Spider”). Add a light touch of twang, and boy-howdy if it doesn't all work (well ... with the possible exception of Dennis the Fox's “Piledriver,” which sounds a bit forced). The download places offer this collection as “album only” but I wouldn't let that scare you off: I can't think of any other way I'd play these songs. Highly recommended for the last few car-washes of the Fall.

another excellent Light In The Attic release...

Yep... I have a few of these tracks from either their respective original artist releases...or other comps...but that didn't stop me from grabbing the entire collection... I only wish we could get a digital version of the liner notes...love the Light In The Attic label & how they mine only the best for us...

A bit superficial, but only a bit- a gooder

A very enjoyable collection of soulful, southern steeped country.

Solid comp

Easy-Urf

Only took one listen for me to realise this is a quality compilation. Plenty of country and funk but with a hefty dose of blues and soul. Recommended.

Odd pricing and a pity for us

I'd like to comment on the music, which I am sure is pretty good, but I already own some of the tracks from other compilations, and didn't want to waste money duplicating songs I already have.

Pricing

stitch

Cheaper on Emusic as opposed to Amazon UK today.

What a rip off!

Ole'rustyrocks

emusic gets it so wrong sometimes, with album prices on album only purchases way way above amazon etc. prices, when it comes to album only from emusic shop elsewhere!
