The budget compilation Just the Funk '80s gathers a surprisingly good sampling of '80s funk within its nine tracks, including classics like Cameo's "Freaky Dancin'," Rick James' "Give It to Me Baby," and Ready for the World's "Oh Sheila." One Way's robotic, vocodered "Mr. Groove," Con Funk Shun's "Too Tight," and the Gap Band's "Burn Rubber on Me (Why You Wanna Hurt Me)" are some of the other worthwhile tracks here, along with songs by Kool & the Gang and Atlantic Starr. Though it's not intended as a deep or definitive funk retrospective, Just the Funk '80s is still an entertaining collection of some of that decade's funkiest songs. ~ Heather Phares
