Peter Brown was one of the ultimate Harlem underground music business entrepreneurs. In the 1970s and '80s, he had a stream of releases on a plethora of labels, but ultimately under the P&P banner. 'P&P Soul and Funk' covers the 1970s with a number of rare, sought-after masterpieces and some equally essential obscurities. From the former category we have the magnificent 'ESP' by Four Below Zero, Dennis Mobley's rare groove instrumental version of 'Superstition' and Florence Miller's soul floor filler 'The Groove I'm In'. Super rare funk is present from Wild Honey, Smokey Brooks and Flame & The Sons of Darkness, while the roots of disco is well represented with Magnetic Touch's original version of 'Ain't No Big Thing' and Ella Hamilton's 'I'm Gonna Fool You.
