The Bar-Kays' music derives its groovability from a hard driving backbeat, tight horn riffs, and the band's overall hypnotic feel. Every song on THE BEST OF BAR-KAYS is as infectious as it is catchy. This is get-down-on-the-dance-floor music from the very first note to the last.
Songs such as "Shake Your Rump to the Funk," "I'll Dance," "Move Your Boogie Body" and "Freakshow on the Dance Floor" are pretty self-explanatory; these are party tunes from the bygone 1970s, but they resonate even now because of the band's contagious grooves and skillful musicianship. The perfect CD for anybody interested in authentic funk/soul music, THE BEST OF BAR-KAYS is veritable boogie feast.
