Waterloo Records

Three CD set. 2019 UK collection. For the very first time you can now get your hands on a definitive collection of the funk and soul sensation that is The Bar-Kays. Robinsongs are proud to be the first label to combine the Warner Brothers, Volt, Stax and Mercury repertoire to make this a unique compilation that covers the period from 1967 through 1989. The package features every single one of their Top 10 R&B Hits 'Soul Finger', 'Son Of Shaft', 'Shake Your Rump To The Funk', 'Too Hot To Stop', 'Holy Ghost', 'Move Your Boogie Body', 'Boogie Body Land', 'Hit And Run', 'Do It (Let Me See You Shake)', 'Certified True' and 'Freakshow On The Dancefloor'. Other tracks of note included in this package are 'Let's Have Some Fun', 'Dirty Dancer', 'Attitudes' and the full-length album version of 'Money Talks' plus the dance floor smash 'Sexomatic'. The history of the Bar-Kays is one of tragedy and triumph, plane crash to Gold Discs, Otis Redding to Isaac Hayes, which is all wonderfully summed up in a 24 page color booklet including an essay by Christian John Wikane, a New York based music journalist with contributions by the band's former front man Larry Dodson.
