    DJ Shadow loved them and tracked down the band members in the early 2000s, got their recordings, and got all of their work released in a compilation. The whole thing is great. I recommend everyone picks up a copy. The opening to Iron Leg just has that feel that they are about to get into some shit.

    Not exactly funk, but this rhythm section has so much groove to it

    Just started listening to this now, its cool as fuck!!!

    Yeah man I dig Roy Ayers big time, he's got so many sick tunes. I went to a festival 2 weeks ago and he was the only person I wanted to see play. It was badly organised and the queues were so big to get in that we missed him by 30mins. He seems to tour and play a lot of festivals though so will try and catch him another time.

    Here's another amazing live Prince jam. Tight as fuck. Imo, this was Prince's best band.

    Best thread on sherdog. Loving all the songs. This song made me a funklover back in the day, against the odds. No - actually, against ALL odds.
