Funky Stuff

Post by IndigoRock2001 » 18 Jul 2018 03:57

I just got the original De-Lite label of Cool and the Gangs Funky Stuff and (even better) More funky Stuff. More Funky Stuff was the song which started the dance The Robot. It all started here! It's one of the coolest riffs ever and on the original 45 I can imagine kids playing this over and over working out how to do the Robot. It's in good shape with lots of crackles on the lead in and lead out but this is completely obscured by the music. I remember listening to Funky Stuff and More Funky Stuff when it first came out, and just automatically starting to do the Robot, I don't think I'd even seen it anywhere, the music just sort of commands it. A great find.

Funky stuff, indi??? We haven't even begun to scratch the surface of funky!! :? I'm a huge Kool & The Gang fan and their early stuff really resonates with me, like this little tune, for instance...

To post the youtube vids do the following: -

Make sure you have the full url of the video, for example, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPeUzqSyHeI

Then place the cursor where you want the video in your post and hit the youtube button directly above the text window (penultimate button from the right, to the left of Gallery).

You will then see this appear {youtube}{/youtube} with the cursor between the two tags (as they are called) but with square brackets [] not the {} I have used so you can see the example.

From the url you ONLY need the last bit AFTER the 'v=', in the case given 'ZPeUzqSyHeI'.

It is this string of alphanumeric characters that you place in between the youtube tags (I'll use the curly brackets to demonstrate) {youtube}ZPeUzqSyHeI{/youtube}.

Job done! :-)

Thanks, Tonybro...Once you get the hang of it, it's not hard at all! :D

In fact, this is definitely one of my funky favorites from this Ohio group...
