Polish Funk vol 2


A heady second helping of funky grooves from Poland -- an unlikely source, to be sure, but one that's filled with a huge amount of great tracks just waiting to be discovered by a global audience! This volume may well be even better than the first -- as it features a wealth of tunes that have a really unique approach -- not just attempts to copy American styles of funk, but some really original ways of approaching a groove! All tracks are from the Polskie Nagrania catalog, but a good number of them are on un-reissued albums that are so rare we've never seen them in the original -- including some great fusion, funky rock, and vocal titles alongside the more expected jazz. CD features titles that include "Further I Go" by Halina Frackowiak, "Atma" by Niebiesko Czarni, "Live By Yourself" by Zdzislawa Sosnicka, "Something Familiar" by Kryszstof Sadowski, "Back To The Old Colorful Days" by Wojciech Skowronski, "Princess" by Andrzej Zaucha, "You Will Want Me" by Czeslaw Niemen I Enigmatic, "Apha Centauri" by Grupa Organowa Krzysztofa Sadowskiego, and "I Shall Cover Your Eyes" by Maciej Kossowski.

i purchased volumes 1 and 2 a little while back...i'm really digging the vibe on these two discs. i think i like the volume 1 better since it seems to have a more raw feel to it. thanks for the post!

Can't believe I've never come across this blog before - especially with a name like Heavyweight Crates. Glad to see that there are people out there in blogland who share my fondness for funky Polish stuff like Jerzy Milian and the Novi Singers - even if none of my friends do! Thanks for the upload and if you post a wants list I'll be happy to upload some stuff if I have it.
