‪This is the weeks ‘featured video’! Another new thing we are test driving on the home page @ TheRightSide! We hope you likey peeps! Tanika Charles -Tell Me Something [Official Video] https://youtu.be/Nk0BhPHHIJg via @RecordKicks ‬

Finally turned Volume 1 into a  streaming playlist! It’s nice to hear all those tunes together again although I do miss the obvious crackles and soul! Still, as promised it has begun - and  as we recently moved they were dug out and put in a pile together by my lovely other half! Some tunes are missing as have never been digitally released and some have their digital equivalents. I will attempt one a week with these playlists  but that’s gonna be a years worth as there were that many, so no promises! #enjoy

Lastfm have a list of ‘modern’ funk bands worth checking out just in case you've missed any along the way. There were a few names we didn't know so will be checking out. Always worth popping back to see who's on their 'fashionable' list and trying to spot the glaring omissions!

Some utter ear filth for you funky dawgs at Spotify - hope it helps to ease the summer back in style! It’s hot off this afternoons listening press & as fresh as ya like! Get in there and get ya vibe on - we’ve gone backwards, forwards n sideways to accommodate! Til Next Time.
