As one of three vocalists for the band Creative Funk - one of the first, truly independent funk collectives of the early 1970s, Diane Jenkins left her mark as an exceptionally talented singer who would undoubtably have ranked among the very best if she had decided to stick around the scene longer than she did. An extraordinary live funk band who released a handful of singles on the label they created themselves (Creative Funk Music), Creative Funk only actually existed for a brief period of time between 1972 and 1975, and although they were quite successful for a short while in their hometown of New York City, they never had the backing of major label to expose them to a wider audience We are indeed fortunate that she left behind some wonderful recordings with Creative Funk - and also as a featured solo artist with four of her own releases on the Creative Funk label. With memorable tunes such as "I'm A Woman," "Tow-A-Way Zone" and "I Need You" - which most likely featured her bandmates backing her up, Jenkins carved out a small but impressive legacy that will no doubt resonate for years to come. Presented here are the complete singles that she recorded under her own name, newly remastered for this exclusive compilation, and finally made available in the digital domain for all to enjoy.
