Classic and rare female funk, guaranteed floor fillers and listening pleasure


There is sometimes an element of giggling and laughing involved in putting together an Ace compilation. Not condescending or rude laughter, but more the sort that you get when you are young and Santa Claus has been with a large pile of presents. It's an uncontrollable urge forced onto you by the sheer joy of being given so much good music to play with. Of course it's not all fun round here, we sometimes have to clean the drains and stuff as penance but when I get to work on a compilation like 'Funk Soul Sisters', I can genuinely claim that it is worth it.

So what is this comp about? Well over the past decade or so of DJing, I've often noticed that the sort of records that really fire up a dancefloor, and will work in almost any club land situation are a certain sort of late 60s/early 70s female vocal record. It's hard to explain exactly what they are like, but they tend to be soul with a touch of funk, or conversely funk with an edge of soul. Records that immediately come to mind are Spanky Wilson's You or Alice Clark's Don't You Care (which for licensing reasons is not available anywhere at the moment). So we thought wouldn't it be a great idea to put together an album of this sort of material. So we did.
