I have the startime box set in my iPhone/iPad playlist of albums to listen to in the future.
While funk is not my favourite genre, this is music in the late 50ís and 60ís. they tend to be more melodic than the funk music of the 70ís (I much much prefer the Motown songs of the 60ís than the 70ís)
From the general recommendation targeted to my taste. Steven Wilson and Porcupine Tree and Marillion are artist I have meant to listen but havenít got around yet.
