"Funk-O-Rama records compiles in this first volume of Hard to Find! a series of songs (all of these coming from 45s searched by collectors and DJs for years) that draw a possible horizon of the American Underground Funk between 1968 (Seven Souls) and 1975 (Jade). This first compilation of Funk-O-Rama records checks the old school funk and its diverse mixtures with soul (Soul Partners, The Deacons.), gospel (The Brothers & Sisters), JBs style (Soul Tornadoes, Maskman, Wee Willie.), blaxploitation (Caprell's) and modern soul (Jade). This period of funk's peak and decline coincides with the last splendour (The Deacons, Big Barney, Creative Funk.) and the agony (High Voltage) of the Hammond Organ, an instrument that went out of fashion in the mid-seventies until its rebirth at the end of the eighties."
