we got the funk

Ahhh...the four letter word, FUNK. Funk is a distinct style of music born of R & B and soul from the late 60's through the 70's. What gives it it's strong unique flavor is the bass. Melodic bass line rhythms are at the forefront of the song, while song structures are simpler. Give me some of that good ole fashion funky music.
