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