Rob Alexander
In what is probably the funkiest episode in our history so far, this is an awesome track by Rob Alexander featuring one of our favourite vibes players.

Roy Ayers – from the CD entitled: Virgin Ubiquity 2
Do you know that Doc has every LP and CD that Roy has produced! In his 40-plus years as a vibraphonist, Roy has produced a string of soul and funk classics, like ‘We Live In Brooklyn Baby’ and ‘Everybody Loves the Sunshine’, that has arguably made him the second-most sampled musician in hip-hop, after James Brown.

Here is a group that was founded by brothers John and Kieth Wilder, their debut album appeared in 1977.

Brian Culbertson (Feat. Chance Howard) From Brian’s latest CD enitled, Bringing back the Funk

Cameo from the CD We all know who we are.

Doc’s heard that Lionel Richie will be touring with the Commodores again.

Brothers Johnson
The two Brothers knicknamed ‘Lightnin’ Licks’ and ‘Thunder Thumbs’ are George and Louis Johnson otherwise known as The Brothers Johnson.

James Brown
Probably one of the most sampled tracks in the history of hip hop!

From one of Prof’s favourite Funk group’s whose songs have repeatedly given him the cardiac dance impetus that keeps him alive and his weight nearly under control !

Maceo Parker
Maceo along with Fred Wesley and others were part of the JB’s – James Brown’s band.

The band formed in New York back in 1970. They have produced lots of great funk and soul. This one appeared in the mid 70s.

Rick James
Rick was one of the most popular artists on the Motown label during the late 1970s and early 1980s. Remember the Stone City band too? Anyway, his unofficial title was ‘The King of Punk-Funk’. Did you know that in the 80s he appeared in the ‘A’ team? During this period, he also helped launch the Mary Jane Girls and produced Eddie Murphy’s one hit, ‘Party All the Time’.

We hope you enjoyed this special, closing out Season 3, celebrating our 3rd birthday and looking forward to a fantastic season 4, with a change to the format!

All the best

Dr Groove & Professor Smooth.
