German Funk Fieber

The blurb on their MySpace says:

Compiling groovy German songs from the 60s and 70s is not really a new thing. However a compilation focussing only on German Funk in its wholevariety is actually a world premier!The music on this compilation ranges from rare Blaxploitation Soundtrack Funk to special cover versions of great classics like Summertime, Watermelon Man or Family Affair. All dressed up in a unique Funk outfit. Rare original compositions from mysterious Funk bands like "Die Melon Men" or "Messengers" stand in line with funky obscurities of Schlager stars like Howard Carpendale or Rock icon Udo Lindenberg. On top of that there are three previously unreleased recordings by Germany's funkiest Orchestra bandleaders Heinz Kiessling, Rolf-Hans Mueller and the legendary Peter Herbolzheimer. Almost non of these 18 songs were ever released on CD before. Ultra Rare Groove DJ Funk bombs for your listening pleasure. Carefully selected, licensed & remastered.
