Backstreet Brit Funk Vol.1 has been reissued for the first time since it’s original release in 2010 plus this will be the first ever release on vinyl for this highly regarded collection.


A collection of rare and very sought-after underground British disco, funk and soul tracks avoiding the obvious hits that have been on a million cd’s already. Many of these tracks never went beyond a very small local release but have since become very collectable - buying this lot would set you back somewhere in the four figures.


Both Vol.1 (2010) and Vol.2 (2018) of the Brit Funk albums tell the story of the underground scene from the late 70’s through to the mid-80’s in the UK when punk and disco were giving way to a new blend of jazz, soul and funk, heavily influenced by the American big hitters of the day but re-worked by the UK pioneers for the British dance floors.



Joey Negro re-edited some of the tracks for the original album, updating them with a fresh new approach. The 2CD which has been out of press for months has also been reissued to coincide with the LP release.
