The horse still bucks, the band still funks, and well… the fire still burns because we are absolutely thrilled to announce the release of Country Funk Volume 3 1975-1982!
With CF3 we’re here to say there’s more funk left in the trunk yet. This time around, the jeans are tighter, the hair is bigger and the disco ball spins along to a country-synth beat. Produced and compiled by Jason Morgan (Bay Area DJ/collector) and Patrick McCarthy (co-producer/compiler of Volume I & II), the digital EP features Tony Joe White (whose track is released here for the first time) alongside Steven Soles, Gary & Sandy and Brian Hyland!
As the 1970s began to wane and the 1980s approached, the Country Funk pallet expanded to include disco beats, heavy Moog synth bass lines and more clavinet than you could shake a stick at. Volume III shows artists continuing to buck traditional country tropes and production while embracing modern soul, disco, and coked-up 80s synth-pop. This is the true soundtrack of the Urban Cowboy. Saddle up, partners.
