The J.B.‘s.. as described to my caucasian friend by the music store guy, “It’s too funky for you.”

Parliament (George Clinton, etc.), Kool & the Gang, the commodores, Rick James, James Brown, and Earth Wind & fire are pretty good

definitely love, Sly and the Family Stone and Parliament…used to be a great funk cover band in San Fran called Super Booty, maybe you can find them to add to your collection…
