238: What is F.U.N.K. vol.5

Hi.
Today a fresh workout on the eternal question...
"what the f*ck is funk?"
Several answers to this tricky question can be
found in some older posts I did over here,
I guess the answer to this enigma isn't one
that's tied to a genre, era or even artists...
It's just the FUNK!
(though some of the today's solutions
are a bit onthe "smoother" side!)
-
Go for this fifth instalment,
and while you're at it,
try not to forget that the funk isn't
always what it seems to be...
even if you thought so all your life....
-
Hope you'll enjoy these ones - again -
I musn't forget to thank all the original bloggers,
without whom this freaky funky festival
couldn't flow forever freely ....
(you know who you are!!!)
