The second installment in Funky Delicacies' excellent exploration into the unearthed funk gems of New Orleans spans 1969-1973, which some may argue are the glory years for raw funk and soul. But in contrast to the other volumes, this second installment takes an eclectic look at the diversity and versatility of the scene. The sophistication and undisputable Memphis influence found on Dome City Orchestra's "Quiet Village" contrasts nicely with Wardell Quezerque's distinctive production and arrangement style found on the Enticer's "Theif" and Larry Hamilton's "Gossip" and "Keep the News to Yourself." The contrasts from one group to another are noticeable to even the most novices of ears; hints of Curtom, Motown, Stax, and Philly labels are all evident, but like everything else good about New Orleans, it makes jambalaya out of these influences and presents a sound distinct but unified.
