Is Candy Dulfer a jazz saxophonist with a feel for funk or a funk player with a jazz side to her musical personality? On FUNKED UP, she leans toward the latter. While there is some smooth melodious jazz here, most of this set is geared to paying tribute to old-school funk–Parliament, Funkadelic, James Brown, and the earliest efforts by Kool & the Gang and Rick James. There’s some rapping along with overtones of reggae rhymes and Latin rhythms, but for the most part FUNKED lives up to its title, with Dulfer’s heated sax shining throughout. This special edition of FUNKED UP! also includes a second disc of Candy Dulfer "chill-out" instrumentals.
The first ever release on CD of the bands third and final album All Funked Up from 1975. MICKY MOODY of course went on to join WHITESNAKE and BOBBY HARRISON then released his first solo album Funkist…

This Deluxe two CD edition of the Dutch alto-saxophonist's 2009 album shows two sides of Candy - the energetic stage persona and intimate seductress. Disc 1 “Funked Up” is the follow-up to Candy's successful Candy Store album. The album is filled with the Funk and R&B that she injects into her live performances but seldom brings into the studio. Disc 2, Chilled Out, contains relaxed, mellow grooves for those late night hours, inspired by the music that Candy and producer Thomas Bank composed for the soundtrack the wine documentary 'Kissed By The Grape'.
' "Funked Up: The Very Best of Parliament" is a full-priced, one-disc summation of Parliament's recordings for Casablanca Records. The album's focus is "chart success," and it includes among its 16 tracks 14 of Parliament's 19 R&B singles chart entries on Casablanca, including all of their R&B Top 40 hits. Six of these tracks reached the R&B Top Ten, with two, "Flash Light" and "Aqua Boogie" hitting number one. All of Parliament's big hits and most of its lesser ones are here.' William Ruhlmann at AMG
