On any given day, Peter Brown will gladly let it be known that he has 500 records "that ain't never been released" in the digital age. A legendary label mogul and businessman, Brown has witnessed and actively helped influence the evolution of black music in America throughout an illustrious career spanning over half a century. He was the independent entrepreneur who could instill fear in the major label big dogs. In a time when the music industry was more like the wild west than it's present day blogosphere, Brown was on top of his game. When "Saturday Night Fever" was sweeping the nation, his disco and funk cuts on the Land Of Hits label were being played alongside acts like Chic and the Bee Gees. When Sylvia and Joe Robinson were living on Sugar Hill, Peter was putting out acts like Spoonie Gee that the Robinsons wanted to have as their own. For an accomplished man with such an extensive catalogue, it is unfortunately too often that we see many a compilations paying homage to him that fall short of the mark. It is easy for the compiler to have his mind boggled when attempting to get familiar with the man's entire works. Equidity Funk, however, is a refreshing and welcomed exception Overseen by Peter Brown himself.

The album features choice selections from the P&P Records catalogue that have, for one reason or another, become rare and lesser known.  Equidity Funk manages to do something a lot of retrospective "old school" compilations can't do, and that is remain a joy for music lovers to play. Peter Brown's impeccable knowledge and memory of his own catalogue has provided the assistance to bring you only the best he could offer; vicious funk perfectly juxtaposed and complimented with a combination of Hip Hop and Electro throwdowns.  Highlights include the super rare Mistafide Hip Hop track "Equidity Funk," as well as the hard beats of Super Coper's "This Is The Way You Do The Break Dance," and Stax's lost gem, "New York Computer Break Dance'.
