AllMusic Review by

Funk has been an ongoing tradition of New Orleans music since the days of the Meters and further back than that if you really want to split musical hairs. This 12-song collection brings several of today's best Crescent City funk outfits including a pair of tracks each from Galactic ("Welcome to New Orleans" and "Something's Wrong With This Picture"), All That ("Back to Broke" and "Wolf's Remedy"), and Walter "Wolfman" Washington ("Funk Is In the House" and "Funkyard"). Other highlights include "Earle" by the Brides of Jesus, "Funky Fourth Dimension" by Iris May Tango, "The White Shadow" by the New World Funk Ensemble, "Johnny" by Smilin' Myron, "Reply" by the New Orleans Nightcrawlers, "House That Jack Built" by Davell Crawford and "Sugar Shack" by Flavor. A solid collection of the 1998 scene.
