Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

The first noted printed use of 'funky,' in reference to music is 1954 in the OED. The meaning, smelly/musty, dates back to 1784.
Avatar    Fri. 2/7/14 2:44pm Uncle Michael:

Ok, so was the 1952 Funky Blues not named contemporaneously?
Avatar    Fri. 2/7/14 2:45pm pacific standard simon:

Well, if it was just an informal jam session...

I know...but I don't know when it was first named or released.

Terry Reid turned down "The New Yardbirds" and recommended Robert Plant. One of many poor career moves.
Avatar    Fri. 2/7/14 2:50pm pacific standard simon:

Maybe Reid was concerned about having all his songs "written" by someone else.
Avatar Fri. 2/7/14 2:51pm Whooda:

UM It was named "Funky Blues" not "contemporaneously". Contemporaneously would have been a terrible name for a song. tehehe

Avatar Fri. 2/7/14 2:56pm Whooda:

In early jam sessions, musicians would encourage one another to "get down" by telling one another, "Now, put some stank on it!". At least as early as 1907, jazz songs carried titles such as "Funky Butt", . . .from wiki "funk"

Albatross is also the closing track for the great weekly public radio show Blues Before Sunrise with Steve Cushing. A fine coda.
