Show Time: a ‘that’s what’s happenin’ call to action to ‘take it to the stage’ and rock a crowd senseless; a description of personalities who bring a flair beyond compare to their life’s calling be it b-ball or cabaret and beyond; an exclamation that the electricity in the immediate vicinity is about to be on-and-poppin’; a title placed upon the sixth album by the shape-shifting Dayton, Ohio Fungk collective, Slave, containing its last major hits “Snap Shot” and “Wait for Me” as well as shoulda been follow-up hits “Steal Your Heart” and “Party Lites.”

Despite its status as a Top 10 R&B album and Slave’s second highest charting record on the pop side, Show Time has only previously appeared on CD as half of a now out-of-print two-fer. Iconoclassic’s Expanded Edition finally shows this funk masterpiece the love it deserves. A. Scott Galloway contributes a 3600 word liner note essay, delving deep into the history with exclusive new interview material from Floyd Miller, Steve Arrington, Cedell Carter, Sam Carter and arranger/conductor Cengiz Yaltkaya. That’s housed in a beautifully designed 16 page booklet. Vic Anesini delivers a definitive remaster, adding two bonus tracks including the unmissable and rare 12″ version of “Snap Shot.”

May Show Time ever reflect The Glory of The Fungk.
