This two-fer containing a pair of albums from the Funk/Pop singer, songwriter and bandleader. As soon as you hear the opening riff to the Jimmy Castor Bunch's 'It's Just Begun' you know you are in for one hell of a funky ride; often sampled but never bettered! Camden have packaged the 'It's Just Begun' album with the band's second album 'Phase Two' to give you that fantastic Funk experience. This package features the million selling single 'Troglodyte (Cave Man)' an absolute phenomenon of it's time, and the 'Phase Two' album features 'Say Leroy (The Creature from the Black Lagoon Is Your Father)' which was very much in the same vein as 'Troglodyte.' Both albums were originally released in 1972 and 'It's Just Begun' reached the Top 30 on the Billboard Pop Charts.

At four discs and 55 tracks, Hip-O's Funk Box seems to want to be the last word on funk, and while it's a pretty good set, it ends up more representative than definitive of its chosen genre. Virtually all of funk's most important artists are featured, but not always by their most significant singles – sometimes the collection gets it right…

Genre: Disco, Soul, Funk | Label: Robbins Entertainment | Catalog Number: 76869-75005/6-2

As a title, Super Rare Disco was a stretch when this disc was released in 1997, and since then, it has only become more of a stretch. While there are no possible cases against Lyn Collins' "Rock Me Again and Again," Eddie Kendricks' "Date With the Rain," First Choice's "The Player," and the Jimmy Castor Bunch's "It's Just Begin" as dynamite disco singles, none of them have been particularly hard to locate since the mid-'90s. One case where the Robbins label deserves some thanks is the inclusion Four Below Zero's "My Baby's Got E.S.P.," a classic underground single helmed by Patrick Adams (who was also responsible for Inner Life's "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," Musique's "In the Bush," Black Ivory's "Mainline," and about 50 other beloved dancefloor singles). No matter what, this is a fine disco compilation for those who want to dig beneath the surface of ubiquitous chart-toppers.

As soul music moved into the early '70s, it became dominated by smoother sounds and polished productions, picking up its cues from Motown, Chicago soul, and uptown soul. By the beginning of the decade, soul was fracturing in a manner similar to pop/rock, as pop-soul, funk, vocal groups, string-laden Philly soul, and sexy Memphis soul became just a few of the many different subgenres to surface. Often, the productions on these records were much more polished than '60s productions, boasting sound effects, synthesizers, electric keyboards, echoes, horn sections, acoustic guitars, and strings.
