Folk Funk & Trippy Troubadours Volume 1



2LP Black $34
CD $20
  • First time on Vinyl
  • Includes never before released material
  • Curated by DJ Paul Hillery


For volume one in the series, Paul has compiled nineteen tracks that represent the journey he’s been on with the Folk Funk and Trippy Troubadours sound to date. There’s music here that has never seen the light of day, demo versions that never made the cut, new exclusive material and beloved classics from the FFTT vaults. The compilation is a sonic landscape of canyon rock, hot tub soul, Frisco folk, Balearic breeze and trippy troubadourial treasures, all lovingly handpicked for the series.

To whet people’s appetites for this alluring funky, psychedelic collection, do listen to a first single in form of ‘Sweet Sweet Stay A While’ by American singer songwriter Jeb Loy Nichols above. Dubbed ‘The high priest of country cool’ by Rolling Stone Magazine, Nichols was raised on bluegrass and country in Missouri, lived in New York in the late 70s during the birth of hip hop and rap and shared a squat in the early ‘80s with The Slits’ Ari Up, Adrian Sherwood and Neneh Cherry in post punk London. All meaning that his complete disregard for genre purity have been one of Nichols biggest influences, which is there in great abundance on the soulful ‘Sweet Sweet Stay A While’.
