AllMusic Review by

The Shout Factory compilation Funkstrumentals brings together instrumental versions of many blues-funk legend Johnny "Guitar" Watson's classic recordings. These are the original recordings remastered without Watson's vocals, leaving just the instrumental tracks. While fans will certainly want to check out the unexpurgated versions, Funkstrumentals is an interesting idea that allows for yet another way to enjoy Watson's unique sound.
