Quantic Presents The World’s Rarest Funk 45s Vol.1-2


Will Quantic is known around the world for his blistering stage performances with his band the Quantic Soul Orchestra. His ear for a good tune, and his feel for a good rhythm didn’t come from nowhere – you see Quantic has been collecting rare funk 45s for years, and in that time he has absorbed every drum kick, every horn line and every guitar lick into his very soul. It’s hard to make good music without drawing upon good influence, so along with Quantic, Jazzman have unearthed some of the very best and rarest funk 45s known (and unknown) to man. These records are pure quality, the exorbitant prices that collectors will pay for the originals lays testament to that, and will stand the test of time as a barometer of good ol’ funky music that is truly inspirational. It’s a shame that the original 45s are so rare, with only a few hundred being pressed in many cases, but it is possible that with such rarity comes excellence, distinction and quality. Many tracks were never before reissued and all songs are fully licensed and restored from original sources.

There’s few folks we’d trust with our ears more than Will “Quantic” Holland – an artist we’ve come to love for his own funky music in recent years, and a collector who’s always driven to dig for the rarest bits possible! This time around, he’s allied with the Jazzman Records crew, in a sweet CD presentation of 16 rare tracks, some previously reissued on vinyl 45s by the label – now finally brought together in one amazing package that’s filled with vintage photos, original label scans, a “rarity guide”, and detailed notes on every single tune! Even if you’ve managed to score some of the Jazzman vinyl reissues, this overstuffed package is worth grabbing up as well – and like the first volume, the collaboration of Quantic and Jazzman means that the compilation’s about as funky as funky can be.
