Kicking off with an Intro from German Maestro's Jazzanova and a few of their remixes/productions (Such a great catalogue of remixes and legitimate LP's from them so do check them out if they are new to you), then were into 80's/90's UK Street Soul territory with the likes of Soul II Soul, The Chimes and Kruez and others, after which Steve Arrington gives us his thoughts on "Funk" and the different types followed by some great examples including my fave Maceo and Sly Stone tunes.
