THE FUNK BOX

THE FUNK BOX



I am reposting this as a "public service"
I have gotten a bunch of emails from folks off the list with respect to this fantastic box set, who wanted the info to take with them as they did their "annual multi national corporation enhancement campaign" (Christmas Shopping......lol)

Here is the original review
Feel free to print it out and take it to the store with you as you shop Show it to the clerrk, it will make your shopping expidition go much faster I think that the Funk Box from our friends at HIP-O RECORDS
makes a great gift for ANY Funkateer to find under their tree :)
======================================================
Those of you "collectors", "raregroove people" (whateva da hell that's supposed to mean....lol), bootleggers, etc. , who have told us in the past that you ONLY want your FUNK on the "original LP's or 45's" might want to quickly delete this posting, scroll past it or pretend that you never saw this....






STILL HERE?

Ok, I'm gonna give you another chance to leave now, before yopu catch a glimpse of the rest of this, cause all of you "collectors", "raregroove people" (whateva da hell that's supposed to mean....lol), bootleggers, etc. are gonna HATE THIS ONE...






Now that all of the "collectors", "raregroove people" (whateva da hell that's supposed to mean....lol), bootleggers, etc. are gone, the rest of us (who can't afford to pay $100.00 for a damn scratched up 45) can talk :-)
HIP-O RECORDS

shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
now make sure that the others don't hear us talking about this cuz they are about to commit suicide over the HUNDREDS (THOUSANDS?) OF DOLLARS they have probably spent over the years trying to acquire these songs.....

Our friends at HIP-O RECORDS have done it again....




Now yall know that I have been the web master of something called the: P*Funk Review for a number of years now, so I have a keen interest in this new release.
