Ueberschall says "The mixture of black and white music created a whole new genre characterized by fat rock sound, tricky beats, funky guitar licks, virtuosic keyboards and pulsating basslines: 70s Funk Rock – pure energy."
"Back in the 70s, Funk doubtlessly offered the best groove while Rock featured the best sound. It is not for nothing a lot of this period's productions are still counted among the milestones of music. We need to thank the masters and heroes of this era for not just mixing elements of Funk and Rock but for creating a dense fusion of both genres. Guitarists spiced up their funky licks using overdrive and octave pedals, adding furious lines and backings, including virtuosic Jazz-solos and extraordinary key changes. Drummers added syncopations to their grooves while a heavy dotted bass kept the foundation. Keyboarders were finally able to prove their abilities outside the typical jazz combo, changing their play during the song using Hammonds, Clavinets and Minimoogs. "70s Funk Rock" combines the energy-filled mixture of this creative era with the endless possibilities of modern music production."
