Soul 7 Box Set (this has been reissued, but we're pretty sure we have the o.g. pressing from 2003).
In 2000, deep funk anthologies were of the shoddy, bootleg variety: you know, the kind that featured new photos of models playing up the funk buffoonery of overgrown afros, bell bottoms and platform shoes. Then came the first fully licensed album of its kind - The Funky 16 Corners anthology, released on Stones Throw Records in 2001. For the funk heroes and heroines that had recorded in the wake of James Brown in the 60s and 70s, everything changed. Its not too much of a reach to say that companies like Numero Group, Jazzman Records, Light In The Attic and their marvellous reissues from the past decade might not have been had it not been for The Funky 16 Corners success. In 2003, two years after The Funky 16 Corners release, Egon revisited the deal that sent him on the chase for licensing agreements in the first place: a box set of 7 singles that Traffic Entertainment Groups president Joe Mansfield had sent him on. The result was Soul 7 a box set of seven 7 inch singles from the 60s and 70s. Some had seen their songs featured on The Funky 16 Corners; some had been up for consideration, but hadn't made the final cut. Soul 7 was a companion piece to The Funky 16 Corners- a chance to stretch out, and dig a lil deeper into the backgrounds and musical legacies of some of the pieces that define the genre that Keb Darge dubbed "deep funk".
