AllMusic Review by

This three-disc box set comprises volumes one through three in Rhino's five-disc series titled In Yo Face: The History of Funk (each is available separately as well). It's a stellar compilation of '70s grooves, including the most famous tracks by every artist -- James Brown, Parliament/Funkadelic, Sly Stone, Curtis Mayfield, Kool & the Gang, Earth, Wind & Fire and War, among others -- that made the music so great. Though there are a few funk classics that are only on other volumes, this is probably the best set to get for listeners who know they want at least three discs of funk instead of a single-disc compilation.
