    Hey All,

    I'm looking for recommendations for some new CDs to pick up. I was hoping for anything with incredible *rhythm* that would make you want to dance.

    Any suggestions?

    An Earth, Wind, and Fire greatest hits would do it. Make sure it has "September" on it.

    Yeah, funk is good. Any funk suggestions?

    James Brown is already part of the collection.
     
  8. I would recommend “Stop Making Sense” by the Talking Heads. Great dance album with some wonderful rhythms.

    Best of The Meters. Doesn't get much funkier than that.
     
  10. There's this one phenomenal band, that often gets overlooked. Those "in the know" call them "Skid Row"..............................;)

    Another vote for the Meters. I like "Rejuvenation" (from 1974). While you're into the New Orleans thing, check out "The Wild Tchoupitoulas" (1976), which actually features the Meters as well as Aaron and Charles Neville. Very raw, funky Mardi Gras music. If this doesn't make you want to move, you're probably dead.

    Some old Ohio Players, Fire and Jive Turkey are cool funk tunes.

    The Meters for sure, also check out some Booker T. and M.G.'s

    Herbie Hancock - Headhunters

    If you don't want to dance after listening to Chameleon I don't know what to tell you

    Pick up some Can records too, if youre looking for rythm then Can is what your looking for, try Ege Bamyasi and Tago Mago

    Betty Davis: s/t
    Betty Davis: They Say I'm Different
    Betty Davis: Nasty Gal

    Or if those are difficult to find, get a compilation "This Is It!". Great funkrock.
