VA - More Adventures of Funk Soul Sisters (2005)

Like Metro's sister volume, Funk Soul Sisters, this offers erratic (if often interesting), not-too-well-known woman-sung funk and soul, spanning the mid-'60s to the early '80s. There is the nagging suspicion that the material was dictated to some extent by the sources that Metro favors for licensing. Betty Harris, Ann Sexton, and Linda Clifford, for instance, are hardly the first names that come to mind when female funksters are discussed, yet they were on Funk Soul Sisters, and here they are again on this follow-up. It also draws more from relatively mundane late-'70s and early-'80s recordings -- sometimes reflecting the influence of disco -- than most such funk anthologies. Betty Wright, Jean Knight, Mavis Staples, and Ike & Tina Turner are represented by fairly unfamiliar tracks, and otherwise these names are mostly unfamiliar to the public. Still, there are some decent performances here worth hearing, like June Conquest's "All I Need" (with a horn arrangement very reminiscent of the Mel & Tim hit "Backfield in Motion"); the same singer's "Take Care," even if it seems much more properly categorized as a quality soul ballad than a funk tune; and the Fascinations' bouncy cover of Curtis Mayfield's "Girls Are Out to Get You." Also here is a very early recording by a then-18-year-old, then-unknown Whitney Houston, as the vocalist on Material's 1982 cover of Hugh Hopper's "Memories"; veteran Nona Hendryx is heard as the singer on another early-'80s Material recording, "Over and Over."
