In Yo' Face!: The History of Funk, Vol. 1

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
The five-volume In Yo' Face: The History of Funk series was a very welcomed thing when Rhino issued it in 1993 and remained a valuable source over a decade later, boasting one of the best documentations of '70s and early-'80s funk around -- even in the wake of dozens upon dozens of other like-minded sets.

That said, In Yo' Face does have its limitations.

Regardless, these five discs have been invaluable to wedding DJs, party hosts, and newcomers alike. The first volume features natural picks like James Brown's "Get Up I Feel Like Being A Sex Machine," the Staple Singers' "I'll Take You There," and Curtis Mayfield's "Freddie's Dead," and it balances those with tunes that are just as worthy, such as Eddie Kendricks' "Keep on Truckin'," Charles Wright & the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band's "Express Yourself," and Family Vibes' "Garbage Man."
