When I said heavy funk was excellent summer music yesterday, this is the sort of thing that I had in mind. “The Stretch” comes from Cold Heat, a collection of heavy funk rarities from the late 60’s and early 70’s. Browse through the album’s liner notes and you’ll see just how rare some of this material is. Some of the bands in here only played together a few times and recorded even more infrequently. Nevertheless, they all brought some serious funk to the table, and the compilation is pretty excellent.
