RICHARD MARKS - FUNKY FOUR CORNERS


Been a while since I've served up some funk heat, so a track like this is well overdue!

Atlanta, GA had an INCREDIBLE funk scene (witness the fantastic "Atlanta Funk" compilation of a few years back) and this track from the early days of all things funky is one of my faves. Some of the hottest snare cracks this side of the JB's!

Side 2 is a great instrumental guitar based workout of the tune, allegedly played by Richard himself (simply shoot me an email if you wanna hear it). And, of course, this isn't that other "Richard Marx" he of funny permed hair1980's MTV fame.

from 1968...
