About us

FunkMySoul’s only purpose is to spread Soul, Funk and Rhythm & Blues from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, almost exclusively from the original vinyl.

Our Vision

Our vision is to create a collection of the most important artists and albums of these genres, amusical encyclopaedia if you will.

Our Passion

We hope that this passion can unify us all in our utmost respect for the purveyors of the music we love so much. Enjoy it and Bless you all Brothers and Sisters.


with reviews

The Originals California Sunset front

If you like ’60s R&B guy groups (and who doesn’t?) The Originals area about as good as they get. While they didn’t produce records during Motown’s truest heyday, and therefore didn’t get the songs of Holland-Dozier-Holland and Smokey Robinson...

Leo's Sunshipp ‎– We Need Each Other front

A really great underground groover from the 70s – an album that hardly got any circulation at the time, but which has gone onto become the stuff of legend over the years! The album’s a bit unusual, in that...

Gene Townsel Time Wounds All Heels front

As written by Colin Dilnot and published in the United Kingdom Magazine “Togetherness“ During the early 1970’s, he had been accumulating songs, which became the basis for the “Time Wounds All Heels” album. He recorded the album in 1975...

The Sisters Love ‎– Give Me Your Love

After listening to Sister Love’s album, Give Me Your Love, it is difficult to understand why the group was not one of the biggest acts of the Seventies. Each song demonstrates the superb talent of the Sisters. Whether it’s...

Lou Donaldson - Everything I Play Is Funky front

The title’s no lie – because the album is one of the shining jewels of Lou Donaldson’s legendary funk years for Blue Note – that second period when he returned to the label at the end of the 60s,...

gloria jones - come go with me uptown

Great lost Uptown soul album, with nice arrangements by Lincoln Mayorga, and some very raw vocals from Gloria. We like this one much better than her later work, and it’s got a good soulful groove, mixed with some sensitive vocal...

Rhythm Machine front

The Rhythm Machine had undergone a series of personnel changes before they finally recorded their album for Indianapolis stalwart if small Lulu label. This accomplished showband produced an accessible mixture of funk, uptempo soul and synth-lead ballads; Rhythm Machine...

con funk shun - 1979 - candy front

This album is pretty damn stunning. “Chase Me” is a funk classic that’s insanely catchy, “Candy” is one of the most beautiful songs of that era, “Da Lady” is a groovy jam with a fantastic hook that really gets...

David Ruffin - Everything's Comming Up Love

David Ruffin teams with Van McCoy for this sweet little set – and the result is a great batch of grooves that swell with Ruffin’s soulful sound of the 70s, but sway with the warm McCoy dancefloor modes of...

Ronnie Laws - Fever front

An album that’s smoother than some of Ronnie’s earlier work, and perhaps without the same dark edge – but still a nice batch of soulful fusion tunes, with production by Wayne Henderson, in his classic 70s At-Home Productions mode!...

Love Unlimited - 1973 -  Under The Influence Of

Great stuff from the girls who first put Barry White on the map! The record is the group’s second – and by this point, Barry had developed that tight snapping drum sound that made his orchestral albums work so...

Travis Biggs - Challenge

Cool stuff – and one of the strangest funk records you’ll ever hear! Travis Biggs is a keyboardist and violinist – and he’s best known for his one album Solar Funk on the Source label – but this is...

A Taste of Honey - A Taste of Honey

Probably the most successful album the Mizell Brothers ever produced, and a fine set of uptempo groovers from this female soul duet! There’s some nice jazzy moments underneath the catchy lyrics, and in a way, the album’s style is...

the perfect circle front

Rare lp relased by an obscure soul funk combo on Inner City Records in 1977 and produced by George Semper. — A lost jazz funk classic! The Perfect Circle are an obscure little combo from Oakland – and they’ve...

The Delfonics ‎– Sound Of Sexy Soul front

Happily the Delfonics were such a success right out of the box that this follow up came fairly easily. That being said? I’d actually known about this album visually long before I ever had it. Crate digging in the...

norma jenkins - patience is a virtue front

The only album ever cut by Norma Jenkins – a New Jersey singer with a surprisingly great ear for a deep soul groove! Norma’s got a sound that’s richer than most of her east coast contemporaries – a really...
