Should give you something to work w/. Also, Parliament if you haven't checked them out, they're basically the same band as Funkadelic. Like Frowny says, there's some good afrobeat out there that could be compatible w/ what you're looking for. I highly recommend checking out some Fela Kuti.

Also, about Rare Earth, I can't give a good recommendation - I haven't heard many of their songs, but their three hits that I've heard all seem to have that sound.

This don't sound bad though, eh?

Damn, great recs, man! I liked 'em all, definitely gonna check out more from those bands.

Edit: Omg, just found out that I Just Want to Celebrate was by Rare Earth. I fucking love that song, but all these years, I thought it was by Grand Funk Railroad, 'cause that's how it was credited when my sister first showed it to me after downloading it off of Limewire years ago.

I have to say I'm genuinely surprised that you hadn't heard any Sly or that particular Hendrix album before.

Anyway, Ori, I've got some killer funk recs for ya. 10 total, so I'll put 'em in a spoiler.

Spoiler for Funk, Baby!:


In chronological order...


Purple Image - Purple Image (1970)


Funkadelic - Maggot Brain (1971)

Not sure if you've already heard the Funkadelic album but if not, get on it!
The opening, title track alone will melt your face clean off!


Cane and Able - Cane and Able (1972)


Del Jones - Positive Vibes (1973)


Betty Davis - Betty Davis (1973)

Betty Davis is the former wife of jazz legend Miles Davis.


The Pointer Sisters - The Pointer Sisters (1973)


Chairmen of the Board - Skin I'm In (1974)

Eddie Hazel & Billy "Bass" Nelson, both from Funkadelic, play on the Chairmen of the Board album.


Betty Davis - They Say I'm Different (1974)


Betty Davis - Nasty Gal (1975)

Because one can never get enough of Betty Davis.


The Pointer Sisters - Steppin' (1975)

Because one can never get enough of The Pointer Sisters.

This one might fit in with what you're looking for, as well. Funk mixed with some rock/jazz/afrobeat with a dash of prog added to the mix.


Demon Fuzz - Afreaka! (1970)

Worth a listen for the opening track alone.

Did you listen to Afreaka? I had assumed that you already knew about it tbh.
