Robinsongs is so proud to be releasing the first Double CD Career Anthology of the R&B supergroup Con Funk Shun.
Between January 1977 and October 1986, Con Funk Shun, a seven-piece group originating from Vallejo, a waterfront city in Northern California's Bay Area, racked up 25 R&B hits in their native USA, including the No. 1 R&B single, 'Ffun'. They were renowned for serving up addictive slices of brassy, dance floor funk but also had a profoundly romantic side; excelling at slow, smooth, passionate ballads. The group was driven by the twin talents of vocalists and songwriters, Michael Cooper and Felton Pilate II, whose contrasting musical characteristics would come to define the group's distinctive sound and style.
The 32 essential tracks on Confunkshunizeya - The Mercury Anthology take us back in time to relive the group's golden years when they were a ubiquitous presence in the American R&B charts during the late 1970s and first half of the '80s.
The standout tracks on this compilation are as mentioned above 'Ffun' where we bring you the full 12' version, and the Top 10 R&B tracks 'Shake And Dance With Me', 'Chase Me', 'Got To Be Enough', 'Too Tight', 'Baby, I'm Hooked (Right Into Your Love)' and 'Burnin' Love', all the album versions, no single edits.
Con Funk Shun broke up as a band in the late 80's but reformed for a one-off concert in 1993, and enjoyed the reunion so much that they started working the live circuit again and have been performing live ever since, even recording a new album in 2015.
