 Vinyl LP pressing of this 2013 collection. Before Daptone, there was Desco. Before Desco, there were the Poets of Rhythm. Back in the '90s, a couple of German kids unearthed a raw sound from our own backyard that we hadn't even remembered burying. They drew from the sound of old Funk records, not as a mold, but as inspiration, understanding that sound would always be an origin of their music, but unlike many 'Soul revivalists' to follow, they never settled for it as a destination. As homage to the undeniably funky front-runners of the modern Soul movement, we are proud to present the definitive collection of Poets tunes, respectfully curated by Daptone staff and the band themselves. It's been 20 years since their first recording session, and this anthology celebrates their decade-long journey from the raw exuberant rebellion of 'Funky Train', to the moody hypnotic explorations of Discern/Define, and the eerie, relaxed groover 'Path of Life' - a journey that truly earns them their name: The Poets of Rhythm.
