Seems like Low Rider by War has been around forever too.

So I'm pretty fresh to the funk and soul. I really dig Hot Chocolate's 'Brother Louie', most Larry Graham stuff, and the sultry kind of thing you hear in depressing city movies. Any recommendations? I guess you could say I'm mainly looking for groovy funk with a dark soul. Something to drink to, not dance to.

Check into the soundtracks from various blaxploitation films from the 70's. Loads of great soul and funk tunes by some of the best in the business. Isaac Hayes, Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Willie Hutch, Roy Ayers, Curtis Mayfield (just to name a few) much of it fits your description.

Can you recommend some of the best of those? Not too educated on that film niche.

^ Those are just a few of the ones I listen to fairly regularly when I'm in the mood. Some of the best soul and funk music ever recorded can be found on numerous soundtracks from from the genre and era. They cover a range of different styles. You might also want to check into compilations from various blaxploitation films from the period. Lots of great ones out there if you look for them.

Does anybody know how The Impressions are after Curtis Mayfield left? I am wondering if I should bother to listen to that material. Thanks for any help.

They defintely released great material afer Curtis's departure, check out their album "Preacher Man." It's a very political album filled with gritty funk, it's sounds like the soundtrack to a Blaxploitation that was never released, I'd highly reccomend a full listen through, but the stand out tracks seem to be "Preacher Man" "Find the Way" " and "Color Us All Gray (I'm Lost)" absolutely great stuff. There are two emotional ballads on the seven track album that seem very out of place but other than that the album is an underappreciated gem.
