Scott “DR GX” Goldfine — longtime disc jockey, music journalist, author of Everything Is on THE ONE: The First Guide of Funk and host of the TRUTH IN RHYTHM show — shares his picks and inside stories for Round 4 of the top 12 funk tracks of all time! This fourth in a series of funk music specials premiered on Modern Retro Radio in May 2022. See Round 1 here: https://youtu.be/DZNxUmXTsp8 and Round 2 here https://youtu.be/th2MbCMRO7w and Round 3 here https://youtu.be/N6NmLQvWjNA.
The playlist about to unfold is sequenced chronologically and spans from 1974 to 1991. Only one song per artist was permitted, and none could be repeated from previous rounds. A new twist is for the first time allowing some album-only picks rather than just focusing on charted singles. Along similar lines, in some cases, where an act has multiple tunes that are neck-and-neck in terms of funk supremacy, the pick I leans toward the lesser-played, less familiar option. So let the vibes flow through as the good DR GX funks you right on up!
