Default Where should I start?

I'm interested in funk but don't really know what artists/songs should I listen to. I would like to begin with funk (a bit older one). Ty you guys.

There's a thread somewhere asking the exact same question, I tried to find it & link to it but the search function of this board sucks balls so I couldn't find it.

Here it is:
The "Where the **** Do I Start?" Thread

It's about artists though. Genre recommendations are usually simply requested in the respective recommendation threads.

Moved to the appropriate thread.

As for funk recs, Thrust by Herbie Hancock is my favourite. Anything from Funkadelic and Parliament is good as well. A few others

Miles Davis - On the Corner
Prince - 1999
James Brown - Hell
War - The World is a Ghetto

Parliament's Chocolate City and The Clones Of Dr Funkenstein are good albums to start with P-Funk. I find these two records more easy to get into than the Funkadelic ones.

As Frownland suggested Hell by James Brown already, I will add his The Payback LP but most of his discography is recommended.

Then try some Ohio Players and early Kool & The Gang.

Not a big soul/funk fan, but really digging Baby Huey lately.
Can anybody recommend similar music?

These albums all have a similar vibe to one degree or another...
