Craig Charles – Funk & Soul Club Vol 3

 

 

 

From Juno Records:¬†Thanks to his BBC 6Music show, self-styled “complete package” – comic, actor, radio presenter, DJ and stand-up poet – Craig Charles has become the UK’s best-known funk and soul enthusiast. It’s perhaps unsurprising, then, that his annual Funk & Soul Club compilations are extremely popular. This third collection is every bit as potent as predecessors, featuring as it does a riotous mix of heavy funk, horn-totin’ soul revivalism, dancefloor-friendly funk breaks (Skeewiff and Stephen Gray), cheeky brass band workouts (Hot 8 Brass Band’s famous cover of “Sexual Healing”) and a dash of smooth soul (the effortless Omar). With all bases covered and some killer material, it should be essential listening for all those of a soul and funk persuasion.
