"Another collection of lost funk treasures from UK-based Jazzman Records, and its fanatical honchos Gerald 'Jazzman' Short and Malcolm Catto. Texas Funk, now available domestically for the first time, is the definitive look into the funk hotbed that was the late '60s and early '70s Lone Star State. From tough, urban centers such as Dallas and Houston, to the sparsely- populated dots of Pasadena and Longview, one message rings clear -- this expanse offered up musical hopefuls who offered 'black gold' equal or better to their major label peers. Included within are some of the most sought-after deep funk tracks known in the collecting world. There are verifiable funk instrumentals, vocal masterpieces, heavy duty interpolations, and unique covers of classics by The Isley Brothers, James Brown and The Meters. Twenty-one gems in all. Expertly remastered, packaged with extensive liner notes, complete annotation, a historical overview of Texas and its funk meccas, an introduction by DJ Shadow and containing more photos and memorabilia in its 24- page booklet than even the most seasoned funk fiend would expect, Texas Funk is a sure shot."
