    As a funk purist and a fan mostly of funk from 1966-73, it can be frustrating sometimes that the word funk often conjures up images of Afro wigs, disco beats and slick Seinfeldian slap bassisms. I sometimes use the term Deep Funk to make the distinction for that raw 60s JB sound.

    I'm with you on the stylistic designation thing but why worry about it.
    Funk is Funk. We, that love the idiom, know "what it is".
    The rest of the world doesn't care!
