The Soul Investigators Fat Slice O'Funk

From humble beginnings in Finland during the winter of 1997, the band has forged worldwide reputation with a string of classic 7' singles and two LP releases on their own TIMMION label, along with sides for JIVE records and the now defunct New York-based SOUL FIRE records. The Soul Investigators have been cooking in the deep funk underground for long enough. Now here they are; fat, tasty and straight up funky - but still raw as hell!
Fat Slice O' Funk is a collection of the best of The Soul Investigators body of work. A combination of previously released and unreleased songs from Finland's funk meisters who have been inspired by James Brown, The Meters, Booker T. & The MG's and Mickey and The Soul Generation. The Soul Investigators don't stray from the path. It's raw, authentic, and mostly instrumental. The album features soulstress Nicole Willis with the track 'Rag Doll'. Nicole has been embraced by the UK's Northern Soul scene and has had an overwhelming repsonse to her new LP 'Keep Reachin Up'.
