Listen: Home Boy & the C.O.L. – “Money’s Funny, Change Is Strange” [1982]

Oh hell yes. Now if you really want something funky, look no further than Home Boy & the C.O.L.’s self-titled 1982 record. With song titles like “Home Boys Revenge” and “Funk Yourself To Death”, you should know what you’re in for. “Money’s Funny, Change Is Strange” was the crown jewel of the album to me, featuring a wicked synth bass line, amazing (and more relevant than ever – “how can you get over if you got no game?”) lyrics, sax solos, vocoder, emphatic triangle hits, and killer rhythm guitar. The whole record is great and you should absolutely listen to it, but dig into the funk immediately with this cut first.
