This unique compilation spotlights the best tracks of Mocambo Records' scarce 7 inch vinyl releases that took the deep funk scene by storm in summer 2006. While it would have been possible to sell a 1000 copies of each, the label decided to stick with the charm of obscure and forgotten Funk 45s by pressing no more than 300 copies of each release. Manufactured at a private pressing plant in Germany, the records not only delivered the sound of rare Funk 45s, but also the look and of course, the quantity. One of the Delta Rhythm Section's 7 inches did not even reach the amount of copies that had been licenced because the stamp broke before the whole edition could be finished. Needless to say, the records were sold out in a short time. For people who missed the limited vinyl edition, it is still impossible to get hold of the brilliant tunes. Popular demand caused the label to "re-issue" the best sides of the original 45s on this compilation so that all fans of the material can now enjoy the music without breaking the bank
