    Though I've already made my contribution to this thread, there's a song I'm surprised hasn't come up yet.



    "Everyday People" by Sly & the Family Stone has a similar single-note bass groove, but it's a little more driving than funky if you ask me.

    Some really great songs in this 8 page list! I would love to have a compilation os all of them (almost all).
    I saw one other Tower of Power suggestion but I have to toss this one out for your listening pleasure.

    Absolutely! Have you seen the live version of when Slash joined Chic for a two week tour in the late 90's/early 2000's (I forget when).

    Two 8 note phrases with only one note changed played for twenty-four minutes. Relentlessly funky.

    this is the funkiest intro in human history:



    so funky, you have to slap yourself

    James Brown yes, but what about Chuck Brown from Philly



    Gadsen, Withers and the boys get funky on the down low:

    I’ve been collecting funk records exclusively for 23 Years and these are the funkiest IMO

    Funk St. Workshop - Git on up


    Miguel de Deus - Cinco Anos


    Ultrafunk - Funky Al


    Cookin’ Bag - This is me


    Leon Mitchison - What Cha Need


    And of course James Brown - I Got The Feelin’

    I have a ton of deep funk playlists up on Spotify, check out my page:
