AllMusic Review by

If you can excuse the ridiculous graphic design, the extensive Funky Collector series -- released by Active Music, under the French wing of Universal -- does an excellent job of tying together well over a hundred overlooked and often unfairly neglected funk and soul singles from the '70s and '80s. The majority of the tracks appear in club-oriented extended lengths, making the discs ideal for DJs and retired clubbers. It's an awesome series, but good luck tracking it down. Barbara Mason's "Another Man," Raw Silk's "Do It to the Music," Armed Gang's "All I Want," Brenda Taylor's "You Can't Have Your Cake and Eat It Too," and Boeing's "Dance to the Beat" are included on the 14th volume.
