I created this tumblr in 2009. I’d been collecting funk & soul records since the 80s and was looking for an outlet to share some of the music I had discovered throughout the years. My sister-in-law suggested I try this site ‘tumblr’ which I had never heard of. Well, 9 years later I have posted over 2,400 songs to this blog and connected with quite a few fellow fans of the funk. One such fan is a guy named Philippe who owns Rocafort Records out of Barcelona. He approached me about putting together a compilation of some of the songs I have featured here, and well, here it is! Officially released today, the record and digital download are available online here: https://rocafortrecords.bandcamp.com/album/funk-for-the-people as well as in vinyl shops around the world. Thanks to everyone who follows me!
