Superfunk album cover

Funk, Inc.


The third Funk Inc. album was something of a change for them, as it featured noticeably more vocal tracks and was their first album not produced by Rudy Van Gelder. The addition of vocals inevitably makes this album a different listen to their mostly instrumental previous work, and their branching out into more soul-based material is pretty successful. Their take on the Meters’ Message From The Meters is hearty and splendidly soaked in fuzz guitar, Just Don’t Mean A Thing could be the best record the Four Tops never recorded but should have, and the Stax horn lines and prominent Fender Rhodes give Goodbye, So Long a raw, southern soul feel. Superfunk ends on an epic near-ten minute funk mediation on Barry White’s I’m Going To Love
