Various - Country Funk II 1967-1974 mp3 album

In 2012, Country Funk 1969-1975 (Volume I) gathered together songs from a genre with no name. Compiled from tracks dating from the late ‘60s to the mid ’70s, Country Funk is the sound of country music blending with sounds and scenes from coast to coast, white America’s heartland music blending with the melting pot as the nation assessed its identity in advance of its bicentennial year. The good news for the people who fell in love with the first volume of Country Funk is this: there’s plenty more where that came from.

Country Funk II: 1967-1974. Country funk isn't a real genre, except retrospectively, being one of those kinds of sounds you can't really explain but you sure know it when you hear it. That's the road map compiler Zach Cowie used for the first volume in this series, and it's the same one he uses here for the second volume. Yeah, it's country, but it's extra greasy, with pronounced backbeats, and it's, well, funky somehow.

If Vol. 1 was about mapping the country funk trend via trucker GPS to show how widespread these sounds were, Vol. 2 is more about showing just how high up the ladder these ideas went. That unlikely marriage inspired Light in the Attic’s first Country Funk collection in 2012, which sounded revelatory because it reveled in the slippery quality of its own premise. In 16 songs, the comp showed how artists from different locations, backgrounds, and genres combined these two seemingly disparate traditions in new and often surprising ways, as though there were infinite variations of country funk. So it’s startling-and even a bit dismaying-that the label’s second volume stretches those two terms until they almost snap.

But like Gator to White Lightning, Light in the Attic’s newly announced Country Funk Volume II 1967-1974 not only equals the grit and stride of the label’s 2012 collection, it actually expands and broadens the genre’s definitions.

In 2012, "Country Funk 1969-1975 (Volume I)" gathered together songs from a genre with no name. Songs that encompass the elation of gospel with the sexual thrust of the blues; country hoedown harmonies cut with inner city grit.

TITLE added to MP3 Basket. Country Funk Volume II 1967 - 1974. Listen Now. Go Unlimited. Light in the Attic brought out some heavy hitters for their second volume of Country Funk. First off the sound is remarkably crisp and clear and the basslines shine trough. Billy Swann starts the proceedings with an ultra slow rendition of Don't be cruel.
