Andreas Koch

Excellent CD, please further thus CD baby.

J. Trawick

The CD FIND THE GROOVE definitely lived up to its name. I found the groove alright and struck more than just the groove: I've struck the FORT KNOX OF FUNK!!!! The songs have a Funky blues vibe to it which I really admire, but it definitely has that old school Funky Drummer style drumbeats that their well-know for that I absolutely LOVE. Clyde Stubblefield, and John 'Jabo' Starks are the most influential drummers of the second half of the 20th century. I'm a huge James Brown fan, but I got to be honest, I'm very unhappy that James didn't give these drummers as well as the entire band the credit they so highly desired back in his heyday (1965-1974). In the past, James' super-ego, unnecessary tyranny ways, and at times verbally degrading the band had somewhat interfered with the creativity and progression of the best musicians that God has ever put on earth. James career could have gone alot further, maybe still be on the Top 100 or even the Top 40 today had he treated his musicians better and had respected them more and most importantly knew how to control his own ego and use it wisely. So to all of the Funksters, Hip-Hoppers, Punk Rockers, and Drum-n-Bass Heads who stumble on this website and see this CD, PLEASE do these Funky Drummers a big favor and buy the CD, it's really ON POINT!!!

Funky_Drummer (not that one!)

Clyde and Jab - baddest drummers ever...
I'm a huge JB/Clyde and Jabo fan...thought the CD had some definite highlights...drummings great...
This is a 'fun' CD, but after getting a glimpse of their still amazing dexterity...I wouldn't mind hearing Clyde and Jabo with some stripped down hardcore funk...
But you won't be disappointed.

CD Baby

If it's funk you want, it's funk you'll get- legendary funk, that is. Jabó Starks and Clyde Stubblefield, became recognized for their funky music while performing and recording with James Brown during the late 60's and early 70's and once again, in their album "Find the Groove" deliver more horn-powered, memorable lines of danceable, beatin' funk groove. If it's old school you like, this is the next, logical move to make.

Clyde Stubblefield & Jab'o Starks should be required listening for all funkateer
This CD is great party music for fans of old school booty shakin' funk. Jabo & Clyde are two guys who know how to put the grooves on the floor. "FIND THE GROOVE" never looses it.
DJ's should put this on their playlist.

Upsidedown Tomato Plants (and Clyde) Rule!
Lived next to Clyde in the late 90' many memories, especially his pride in growing tomato plants upside down on his patio...and bringing him great gifts from our trip to Jamaica! I bought every Clyde CD I could locate for Aaron for disappointments! AND I found these great folks at CDBaby...will buy nowhere else ROCK, guys (and gals, where appropriate)! Can't wait to get back to Madison to hear Clyde LIVE!!!


Real funky shiznit!!!
The party's in the kitchen fo real!!!! This is a must have for the electric slide!!!!

Drummer Fan

This is what FUNK and IN THE GROOVE means !
This is FUNK and IN THE GROOVE alright ! If this doesn't get you going - nothing will !!

Dave Porter

As funky as it gets, and then some!!
Load this baby and then retreat to the centre of the room. You will be movin' and gettin' down as soon as it starts.
This is OLD SCHOOL funk on the highest grade, by the guys who laid the beat down in the first instance. My advice to Mr.J.B. is to "watch your back", these guys are out to replace you. Dam Good!
