Editorial Reviews

2013 collection. Before Daptone, there was Desco. Before Desco, there were The Poets of Rhythm. Back in the '90s, a couple of German kids unearthed a raw sound from our own backyard that we hadn't even remembered burying. They drew from the sound of old Funk records, not as a mold, but as inspiration, understanding that sound would always be an origin of their music, but unlike many 'Soul revivalists' to follow, they never settled for it as a destination. As homage to the undeniably funky front-runners of the modern Soul movement, we are proud to present the definitive collection of Poets tunes, respectfully curated by Daptone staff and the band themselves. It's been 20 years since their first recording session, and this anthology celebrates their decade-long journey from the raw exuberant rebellion of 'Funky Train', to the moody hypnotic explorations of Discern/Define, and the eerie, relaxed groover 'Path of Life' - a journey that truly earns them their name: The Poets of Rhythm.

Format: Audio CD
Drawing inspiration from Funkadelic, James Brown, The Meters and the sounds of New Orleans,
Poet of Rhythm's main players, Bo Baral and JJ Whitefield recorded A LOT of high grade funk
during an eleven year period, from 1992 - 2003.

They got signed by the German label Soulcity Records, who released "Practice what you preach"
in 1992, but disagreements over marketing and accounting made the band decline to record new
songs under the contractually bound name of The Poets Of Rhythm. Instead they recorded an
incredible amount of self-released seven inches under various names; Bus People Express, The
Woo-Woos, The Pan-Atlantics, Soul Saints Orchestra and a few more.

Daptone have collected 18 of these songs, and among them you'll find some reeeal funky chickens.

"More mess on my thing" is a modern funk classic and the funkiest bird on the farm, it's strutting
it's stuff like a rooster in celebration . Other groovers include "Funky Train", "50 yards of soul"
and "Santa's got a bag of soul", the funkiest, hardest hitting Christmas song ever recorded. Lordy Lordy!
Faaantastic! In addition to these songs there are quite a few cool, mellow instrumentals on it, like
"Choking on a piece of meat pt.2", "Ham gallery" and "Discern/Define".

The lyrics are a bit corny, almost verging on the parodic and they get away with murder on a few occasions.
Poets Of Rhythm, most certainly, but no poets.

If you dig this album please check out the Whitefield Brothers fabulous "In the raw". By far the rawest and
funkiest album these cats released. I don't know why Daptone didn't include anything from that album, they
could easily have selected at least 3 outstanding tracks from it; "Thunderbird", "Rampage" and Yakuba".

Hard to believe they aren't from New Orleans. They capture the sound perfectly. There is a variety in this genre and they capture it well

Never heard anything like it. Awesome album! A must buy! Heard about the band on a local radio station, one song hooked me!
