Funky Friday Four Pack

Jimi Tenor - Total Devastation
Organism - 1999
Exquisite space disco from the Finnish funk wizard and master of big arrangements.

Will I Am - I Am
Will I Am - Yadda Yadda
Lost Change - 2001
Back before Feraglicious came into the picture I actually kind of dug Black Eyed Peas' take on concious hip hop. Will I Am obviously has skills as a producer and writer, and these are evident on this relatively unknown soundtrack/solo LP. I Am is classic herky-jerky Will I Am material. Yadda Yadda is a bumping instrumental, a sort of bossa rock hop fusion.

The Spinners - I'll Be Around
A stone cold classic from the deep '70s. A super slick slice of soul.
