Funky Funky New Orleans, Vol. 4 Review

by Rob Theakston

This fourth installment in the excellent Funky Funky New Orleans series not only features one of the most jarring covers ever to grace a funk records compilation, but some of the deepest cuts as well. Several songs from the highly revered JB's label make their first appearance on compact disc here, including "The Monkey That Became President" by the Brotherhood, Larry Jones' outstanding "Funky Jaws" (both vocal and instrumental versions), and the consistently excellent Fantoms with "Turn Me On." Not the strongest in the series, but collectors and beatheads will find this to be the most obscure and eclectic of the bunch.
