These are my records: Soviet Funk, Vol. 1

Various artists – “Soviet Funk, Vol. 1”

An excellent record, but if you’re hoping to find Bootski Collins here, keep looking. This is more early ‘70s-style funk-jazz than straight-up funk, which probably shouldn’t be surprising because, honestly, how funky were the Soviets back then, really? As a side note, I’ve yet to hear a Secret Stash release that I don’t love. Best tracks: “Vyrodok” and “Gostiny Dvor.”
