Playlist - Craig Charles' "Funk & Soul Club floor fillers" feat. Stevie Wonder, Curtis Mayfield & more
Having hosted The Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club at Manchester's Band On The Wall on the last Saturday of each month, not to mention a 6music show of the same name, the Red Dwarf man is bringing out a compilation called - you guessed it - The Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club on the 26 November. We asked him to create a Playlist based on what he plays at his... yes Funk & Soul Club...
Mario Biondi - This Is What You Are
"Slick, cool, reminds me of summer, fantastic voice."
The Golden Toadstools - Silly Savage
"Frantic , hardcore, deep funk."
Smoove And Turrell - Beggarman
"A song for our times."
Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes - Don't Leave Me This Way
"You never want it to stop, Teddy Pendergrass' voice is on fire."
Little Wille John - Talk To Me
"James browns favourite vocalist. The voice of an angel, sent to jail for murder, dies tragically young."
NB Rocket Mand & Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss are currently unavailable.
Cody Chesnutt - Looks Good In Leather
"I play this my dressing room every time I'm doing Red Dwarf."
The Third Degree - Mercy
"The way Duffy should have done it!"
Stevie Wonder - Higher Ground (The Reflex version)
"The Reflex is a genius what he does with Stevie Wonder stems is exceptional."
The Still Naked Fools - Rocket Man

"Just speaks for itself really."
