Announcing: Psych Funk Sa Re Ga! (World Psychedelic Funk Classics)

We really don’t know how the good folks at Cheyenne, Wyoming’s World Psychedelic Funk Classics have the time to dig up so many incredible global-psych-funk joints and compile them… maybe the lack of decent local records to rediscover (the Soul Reflections’ “Grooving in the Basement” notwithstanding) has something to do with it. Anyway – their latest, an investigation into the “Aesthetic Expressions Of Psychedelic Funk Music In India,” is due out later this year. We just got a sneak peak at the cover and it looks miiiiighty promising.

Psych Funk 101 Full Page Review In The Wire

We think it’s a first for us here at Now-Again; it’s certainly a first for our cousins at World Psychedelic Funk Classics Records. A full page, glowing review of the Psych Funk 101 Comp in The Wire Magazine by Peter Shapiro.

An excerpt:

“I have said it many times before, but I will say it again: there is no more exciting sound in music than the sound of a guitarist barely familiar with electric amplification – or, as evidenced on this fabulous compilation of syncretic out-there funk, a saz player trying to come to terms with a fuzzbox.”
