Now in it’s fourth year. The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Club compilation CD’s have become a firm favourite with anyone that has at least a passing interest in funk and soul music. The compilation’s feature mostly the best of current releases in the contemporary funk and soul scene with a few older classics thrown in for good measure. This years effort continues the format and doesn’t disapoint.
