Uncle Funkenstein - Together Again

  • Uncle Funkenstein

    Together Again LP (1983)

    R & L Records

Ranked #178 in the Soul Strut 200

Ungodly rare funky jazz private press LP from Indianapolis that caused quite a stir with crate diggers here on Soul Strut.  It's hard to imagine collectors would pay upwards of 3k for an 80s jazz record, but some have.  The Uncle Funkenstein LP has no hint of Bootsy instead reeks of uptempo Strata East soul jazz (especially on the title cut.)  It's good, but $3000 good?  Besides that cut and its three different iterations, the album ventures into big band territory and swing egging on haters to cry overrated.  Thankfully Jazzman Gerald reissued it in the late 2000s, but even that pressing goes for $100+.
