Funky disco soul revival?

It's not prevalent enough yet to call it a revival, but with Cee-Lo Green leading the pack with his Stevie Wonder-esque The Lady Killer, it's conceivable that a full-blown resurgence of the funkadelic sounds of the 70s could be on their way back to the mainstream. Perhaps it's just my wishful thinking, but here's a handful of examples of recent music that are fully indebted to the sounds of the yesteryear and give me hope for the future of grooviness. Now we jive.

You should also include Madlib's Medicine Show #10: Black Soul to your list. It's FULL of this type of music. LOVING the Duck Sauce. We need a full album.

Just got Medicine Show 10 the other day. Best of the bunch, methinks. Thanks for the comment, Rich.
