Parliament 1978 album Motor Booty Affair


Image result for parliament motor booty affair




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.







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.



I actually like that album smile It's not as strong as some of the others,but it does contain at least two excellent jams: "Theme From The Black Hole" and "The Big Bang Theory"

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:




MI000001505.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?





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


Flashlight.



Those are solid jams!I also love the song "Funkentelechy"....one of my favorite jams by them! ...."where'd you get your funk from?" smile I believe that George Clinton has said that this is his favorite album

The most outstanding P-Funk art I've seen is in this art exhibit in Japan. Osaka or Tokyo I do not know. George is over there now for a Billboard performance. His wife Carlon just did a periscope from the exhibit.
There are some pieces in the collection that will stop your heart, just unbelievable. They are going from anywhere between 50-125,000$.

Without a doubt the Japaneese peoples are planet earths deepest funkateers.

That being said my all time fave Funkadelic song is Undisco Kidd. Get you some headphones and try to follow what Bernie is doing on this song.

My fave Parliament is Runpofsteelskin.

I think there are 3 distinct eras of Funkadelic. Each separated by a transitional album. The first 3 albums go together. Then America Eats Its Young ushers in the new era from Slop thru Tales. Major label change ushered in by Jollies and crystallized by One Nation thru Electric Spanking.

P-Funk rules! George & crew come in 2nd only to Prince for me.

My first P-Funk album was Cinderella Theory back in '89. Needless to say, I didn't get from that why George was so highly regarded. Then in '92 I heard the first Funkadelic album and have been hooked ever since. I absorbed each Parliament, Funkadelic & GC album one at a time, acquiring them in no particular order.

I would recommend them all but then that's how I feel about Prince, too. My favorite though is probably the first one that hooked me, Funkadelic by Funkadelic. Perfect. Album. wink

Interestingly enough it was my mom that bought me Funkentelechy, my first P record and indoctrination. It was in the K- Mart for 4.99, to this day I think she regrets it. To her GC is and I quote, "a fool that has figured out how to make money".

I've got the complete Funkadelic recordings box set 76-81 and 'Tear The Roof Off Live' by Parliament. Some George solo stuff too. I love what I've got. Essential as any Prince, JB, MJ, Stevie and Sly to me.

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

LMAO. K-Mart used to sell those albums back then. I remember my mom bought me
Graham Central Station's Mirror album out of there one year. It was cool the album
cover had some film on the front that resembled foil so you could see the reflection of yourself. That brings back memories man being able to go to K-Mart
for vinyl. K-Marts are starting to become a thing of the past as many of them are closing. Hell I remember when my mom would go to the local dime store and buy 45's. lol

I don't have the 80's and beyond albums (i'm working on it) but from the classic eras its Funkentelechy Vs. the Placebo Syndrome and Maggot Brain for me. The first Horny Horns album is surprisingly strong as well.

Yup. Record Bar was the other spot, then Turtles. I bought some funk in Sears too. Got the Bootsy?Player Of The Year thang in there a couple months after Funkentelechy. Man I was piecing the Funk Mob together bit by bit back in them days. Putting the puzzle together. By the time One Nation came out I was saying dang, all these guys are in the same band.

Critics always talking about One Nation being the Funkadelic master work. To me this is it right here. The finest hour of the funk. He says he was trying to do a straight record, getting all the acid out.

You just hit another home run with that bruh. I forgot all about Record Bar. That was my dad's

spot when I was a kid. I used to roll with him. He used to buy his Wilson Pickett, Sly Stone, and

Isaac Hayes. I remember I used to wait for him to go to work so I could sneak in the Living Room and play Shaft. I used to know that album backwards and forwards. lol

Back on topic my baptism to the P-Funk and probably most people was the Mothership Connection

album. My neighbor down the street older brother had the album and I begged him to make me

a cassette tape of it. Parliament/Funkadelic and Bootsy had become such a phenomenon for the

brothers every other houshehold in the neighborhood had it. You could walk down the street and

hear someone playing it in the house. We used to shoot ball in the backyard in the neighborhood

anywhere and it would be a crime if you had a jam box and you weren't playing any PFunk.

Instead of posting a lame "it's all good" reply, I'll force myself to do a top10 list:

Standing On The Verge Of Getting It On
One Nation Under A Groove

Mothership Connection

Chocolate City
Free Your Ass And Your Mind Will Follow

Funkentelechy vs. The Placebo Syndrome
Gloryhallastoopid (if you overlook "Party People", it's actually a pretty bangin' record)
Funkadelic (the first album)

Tales Of Kidd Funkadelic (I like it cause it's noisy!)
Let's Take It To The Stage


Yeah, too much goodness to pick from.

America Eats Its Young and Trombipulation are the weakest ones from the bunch. Osmosis I don't usually even consider a P-Funk record, but it's got a few great cuts.

The best GC "solo" album is You Shouldn't-Nuf Bit Fish, I think.

I don't have strong opinions on Bootsy's solo work.

Here's a list of under-rated P-Funk releases, in my funky opinion:

Live At The Beverly Theater

Greatest Hits Live 1972-1993

Hey Man... Smell My Finger

Dope Dogs

Axiom Funk: Funkronomicon

T.A.P.O.A.F.O.M.

How Late Do U Have 2BB4UR Absent?


To name but a few... music headbang

Interestingly,Prince attended this 1983 show and when it was over,he went into the studio and composed "Erotic City".This is considered one of the greatest P Funk shows ever!

I agree."Party People" is a mediocre groove in search of a hook.It's probably the weakest track on that album and it goes on forever.Not sure why their record company released it as the first single confuse

Y'all done stepped off deep in it now. Isn't that second pic just the back cover of the Wax Poetics? Now there is a Japaneese issue of it with GC riding the dolphins on the cover.

As for that 4 disc live set, there are 3 separate versions of it (domestic, UK-the one pictured, and Japaneese)and you have to get all 3 for all the tracks. They've got some overlap.
I've both both the US & UK but never got the Japan. I saw it once for 100 dollars just as it was coming out and am kicking myself over and over since then.

Mugs need to go back and revisit the whole Trombipulation album and the song Party People. Get you some headphones out and get up under the groove on New Doo Review. The whole point of Party People is to sound like it's off in a black hole for real. Sparse. But to this day the song is one of Garry Shider's finest vocal joints. Like a lot their stuff there is more going on in that song than meets the ear upon first listen.
