Funky Guitar Beats contains 10 funky soul-jazz tracks culled from the Prestige vaults. All of the tracks date from the late '60s and early '70s -- not exactly a time that's held in great regard by jazz purists, but acid jazz fans and younger listeners find the elastic, funky grooves quite enticing. And that's the key to enjoying Funky Guitar Beats -- if you like the critically panned "pop" efforts from the late '60s or the way they're sampled on dance records, this is certainly worth your time. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
