There are probably very few bands that are as underrated as Lipps, Inc. "Funky Town" even in this day and age is universally acknowledged by both critics and fans alike as one of the greatest singles of all time and rightfully so; a classic song that spans the ages and yet that seminal track is not even the best track on this compilation!

The remake of Paul Carrack's old track from his Ace days "How Long" gives me goose bumps all these years and is one of the greatest covers of all time. "Designer Music" is a wonderful spoof of our brand conscious society while tracks like "Does Anybody Know Me" and "Addicted to the Night" have inspired other artistes not least of all Prince, the other Minnesota native that made it big. Indeed those two tracks would not have sounded out of place as tracks on "1999" or even "Purple Rain."

The tracks according to the liner notes have also been remastered rather well and so the sound quality is quite respectable. All tracks have been compiled by none other than the brains of the outfit, Steve Greenberg himself and so you know that these 12 track selections very fairly represent the best that Lipps, Inc have to offer according to the guy whose opinion matters the most and is currently the only compilation of the band that's out there. Highly recommended.

Lipps Inc.'s Funkyworld is a non-stop dance party. Nearly every song is 5 minutes or longer in length, and it is super-saturated with sizzling drum beats/rhythms, cool bass lines, strumming guitars topped with the beautiful vocal stylings of Cynthia Johnson, Melanie Rosales & Margaret Cox.
I remember experiencing "Funkytown" for the first time as a child on my old KISS transistor radio in my parent's basement. I ran to the telephone & called up the one & only black station in Kansas City, and desperately asked the DJ for the name of the artist & song. It was like nothing I had ever heard before. I promptly ran out & bought the LP "Mouth to Mouth" with my weekly allowance money. Most of the tracks from that LP are featured here. "All Night Dancing" is one favorite. There is a part of the song where Cynthia whispers the title as a male voice sings backup over minimalist drum and (thumb-popping) bass, the effect is almost hypnotic. "Jazzy" is a cute little instrumental number which really emits a personality all its own. "How Long" is a remake of the classic, which I feel far surpasses the original with its inventive stopwatch-clicking eigth notes and clever sound effects. "Designer Music" is a brilliant tune which incorporates classical string arrangements with the simple drum/bass/piano and guitar mix as Ms Johnson celebrates the labels associated with high fashion (If Calvin says it's smashin'/It's got to be in fashion). The last 6 songs were all new to me when I first purchased this collection. "Hold me Down" features a beautiful vocoder voice singing part of the verse and later harmonizes with itself. "Addicted to the Night" continues the recurring theme of dancing/partying/going out and turns it into a fast-paced, thick-drummed adventure.

A great collection of R&B-flavored Pop Music. My favorites on this collection:

01. Funkytown (great, classic dance cut)
03. Rock It (good, up-tempo dance tune - I never knew that this was a Lipps, Inc tune! - It reminds me of Cheryl Lynn's "Star Love")
04. Designer Music (interesting tune - you can dance to it, but, the message it conveys is dated, but valid!)
09. Addicted to the Night (a tune in the "rock" & "new wave" style)
12. Hit the Deck (funky, actually!)

The time listings are as follows:
01. Funkytown - 7:49
02. All Night Dancing - 8:20
03. Rock It - 5:41
04. How Long - 5:37
05. Tight Pair - 8:32
06. Jazzy - 3:58
07. Designer Music - 5:42
08. Hold Me Down - 5:26
09. Addicted to the Night - 6:48
10. Choir Practive - 5:56
11. Does Anybody Know Me - 4:21
12. Hit the Deck - 6.07

As you can see, you get value for your purchase!

I rate "Funkyworld...Best of Lipps, Inc"...Five stars!

Funkytown...All Night Dancing...Addicted To The Night & their masterpiece...CHOIR PRACTICE. How I wish they'd release their best album, 4, on CD. Alongside The Ritchie Family & Silver Convention, Lipps Inc were what '70's disco was all about...

It's a CD called "Funky World." You're pretty much going to get what you expect. Listen to the sample clips. It's those songs.
