Of course The Funk Box is kick-ass party music--put "Sex Machine," "Brick House," "One Nation Under a Groove" and "Hollywood Swinging" in the same set, and that pretty much goes without saying. But its chronological survey of funk's evolution through the '70s also frames the dialectical struggle between the music's two main schools--the James Brown style (hard, sharp, built around drum-and-guitar polyrhythms) and the P-Funk style (goofy, squishy, putting all its weight behind ultraheavy bass)--along with the way both schools dealt with the emergence of disco. The set also reveals how the party-time atmosphere of the earliest funk hits gradually evolved into the social consciousness of Cymande and the O'Jays, and then back to the hedonism of Fatback and Zapp. All the big funk stars are here, but the compilers have mercifully gone for as many lesser-known floor-fillers as warhorses: Rick James is represented by "You and I" instead of "Super Freak," George McCrae by "I Get Lifted" instead of "Rock Your Baby." The set also includes a lot of forgotten wonders and DJs' secrets--when's the last time you heard "The New Birth" or "Pleasure"? You can treat The Funk Box as an introduction to funk, as a textbook on how popular music reflects mass culture, or even as the source material for pretty much every hip-hop sample ever. Or you can just put it on and dance your brains away. --Douglas Wolk
