AllMusic Review by

Even if you're the most casual fan of funk, this two-disc set from the Drew's Famous series will only come in handy if you want a nasty headache. Drew's tireless Hit Crew roll through 30 more renditions of popular songs ("One Nation Under a Groove," "Play That Funky Music," "Brick House," "Be Thankful for What You Got," "Pick Up the Pieces"), most of which use the same exact notes and phrasings while managing to sound completely different from the originals. Funk compilations containing all-original versions are often just as affordable as this thing, so avoid it at all costs -- unless, of course, you want that headache, even if it's preceded by a (fleeting) chuckle.
