In Craig Charles' own words ‘The Craig Charles Trunk Of Funk Volume 3' features "19 of the
finest slices of super slinky soul, boot shaking blues and boogie, dazzling discofied ditties
and fine funky rump shakers!'
As a lifelong soul boy, Craig Charles has been adding to his trunk of funk since his youth in
Liverpool, going to see local heroes The Real Thing live, and wearing out his shoe leather
dancing in the city’s many underground clubs.
As a poet, actor, radio & television star (including comedy sci fi 'Red Dwarf' and soap opera
'Coronation Street') he’s been famous since his teenage years, and for over 22 years he has
been evangelising for the good groove via his world renowned BBC 6 Music weekend and
day time shows, DJing at clubs and festivals around the globe – his reputation as a one of the
highest profile ambassadors for all things soulful & funky is indisputable.
Craig's latest collection, his tenth in total, like all the previous releases has been curated in
partnership with his long time compilation collaborator Greg Boraman of IMPRESS!VE
Collective Music & Arts and blends up-tempo club classics, with fresh music from the cream
of the crop from the contemporary soul and funk scene with a smattering of old school
classics. The end result is akin to having Craig personally DJing in your own home –
blending contemporary and classic soul, disco, deep funk and beat heavy rhythm and blues.
Beautifully presented in a double LP gatefold sleeve & CD, The Craig Charles Trunk Of Funk
Volume 3 is a treat for the hundreds of thousands of listeners of his BBC Radio radio shows,
regulars at his club nights and also for DJ’s who need 19 floor focused musical treats in one
handy package.
