headbang music ^^for me,this is the ultimate P Funk album.Classic funk album from beginning to end.But now I'm gonna pick a favorite Funkadelic album:

MI0000001505.jpg?partner=allrovi.com

^^It's been said that this album,released in 1976,is really just a collection of outtakes from Hardcore Jollies,but I think it's one of their strongest albums! "Undisco Kidd" is my JAM

Anyway....let's discuss the Parliament albums,the Funkadelic albums,and any other side projects from the P Funk empire.What are your favorite albums?

1976 was such a busy year for them.Early that year,Parliament's album Mothership Connection was released and became a massive seller.Then,in the latter part of '76,they released The Clones Of Dr.Funkenstein around the same time as two Funkadelic albums: The Tales Of Kidd Funkadelic and Hardcore Jollies.This is in addition to Bootsy's solo debut album!

It wasn't just the music that a incredible, it was also the live shows and the artwork on their album covers etc that made them stand out. I think that is what is missing in today's music. Parliament-Funkadelic - Full Concert - 11/06/78 - Capitol Theatre (OFFICIAL)

I recently purchased a vinyl copy of this album on eBay,with the comic book and the poster included smile That's one of the things that's so cool about collecting P Funk albums.....many times,you get bonus posters and extra goodies,included in the album.

I agree,their album covers are very bold and eye-catching,especially the Funkadelic ones.

Enjoy, it's a ride. There are 4 different P-Funk eras.

Their first era of pre funk. When they were a doo-wop group then a Temptations like outfit. 59-67

2nd era is the funk-rock era of 67-73.

3rd is their most popular era. The Mothership era. 74-81.

Last era of 82 to whenever.

"getting to know you" is a underrated but great P-Funk jam. the soulful chorus is great, I love how I can hear Mudbone's voice out front. he is a distinctive & important part of many of Parliament's songs - especially on funkentelehy vs placebo syndrome..

EXCELLENT Parliament album - they're still at the top of their game, despite the defections of Glenn Goins & others. the only track on this album that I don't really like is "liquid sunshine". everything else - BAM.

Awhile back I found a mint copy of this album on eBay,with the poster and iron-on transfer smile I was thrilled! This is one of the P-Funk projects that *must* be listened to on vinyl.You don't get the full experience listening to it on CD.

This is my favorite one. Hard to choose. I remember during the winter of this year me and my

cousins were snowed in for 3 days at my grandmother's. No school. We would play cards and funk to this album all day. They started to lose steam on the Gloryhallastupid album.

My mom bought me the Funkentelechy album. I used to wear the needle out on Bopgun and

Flashlight.
