Country Funk: 1969-1975

This post-hippie country sampler features Nashville stars (Mac Davis, Bobbie Gentry), 1950s holdovers, and self-released space cadets working out humid hybrids of California singer-songwriting, Memphis soul and Cajun gumbo. Per Dennis the Fox in "Piledriver," it's "a high-steppin', side-steppin' life outside you ain't never seen."
