The title is misleading -- Funky Love is not an apt description for these ten urban soul sounds. The collection samples urban contemporary from artists of many styles, including the Manhattans, Jody Watley, and Ready for the World. What's funky about Larry Graham's "One in a Million," the Force MDs' "Tender Love," or Patrice Rushen's "Feels So Real"? Only two titles fit the tag: Aretha Franklin's "Freeway of Love" and Earth, Wind & Fire's "Let's Groove."
