Funky soul from the west coast -- and a motherlode of tracks that you've probably never heard! Inner City Records was a small time funk powerhouse -- owned and run by organ player George Semper, who cut some mighty fine records on his own! The label's not to be confused with the New York-based jazz label Inner City -- because this one was a much more down-n-dirty funky one -- and cut some killer work in a deep deep mode, much of which was never issued before -- and is making a long-overdue first appearance here! The tracks have some seriously fine jazzy work in them -- snapping funk, with a hard and dirty edge, played by performers that include Charles Owens, Rodney Franklin, and James Gadson -- all of whom would later go onto become superstars in their own right. A number of tracks have vocals, too -- and titles include "Plastic Situation" by Ron & Candy, "In One Peace" by In One Peace, "Funkorgy" by Funkafreek, "Tenderness" by Funkhouse with Candy, "Thank U" by The R&B Classic Funk Band, "It's Insane" by In One Peace, "Spread The News" and "Hands OGritty Soul & Underground Funk From The Vaults Of Inner City Records
