Funky sounds for today

I'm listening to the nearly forgotten sounds of EAST ST. LOUIS, ILL., as I drive around today.
ALLAN MERRY and the SOUTH END NEIGHBORHOOD OPPORTUNITY CENTER created a record label to help keep kids off the streets in the late 1960s, and the the funk-soul-jazz collective that sprang up, the YOUNG DISCIPLES, is now immortalized on CD, thanks to the fantastic reissue label, NUMERO GROUP.

I guess my short work week (I am off Friday through Monday) has me feeling funky.
The "Young Disciples" compilation provides great accompaniment for that feeling
