Couple of great second-tier later offerings not yet mentioned are Urban Dancefloor Guerillas, Blacktronic Science and Straight Outta P University. Hard to pick, but fave albums from some of the main acts are ..... One Nation Under a Groove, Mothership Connection, Ahh .... The Name Is Bootsy, Baby! and TAPOAFOM. Bonus pick: The Mothership Connection Tour rehearsal album Newberg Sessions.
If you've got funk, you've got style.

I have. I especially like CD 3 & 4, because they remind me of some of the concerts I saw in those years. And I luvvv Belita Woods!

IMHO, A jam for sure, and the 12 incher really rolls. But weakest track on the album.

Can't go wrong with any of the great Bootsy efforts. Straight Ouuta P had me going all thru the late 90's. UDG may be the most well-produced, slickest album in all of P-Funkdom.

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.



No Margot Brain?


It's not in my TOP10. shrug

I've always preferred Free Your Mind over it.

Maybe I'm just being an elitist and don't even fully realize it. wink

Maybe it should have been in my personal TOP10 above.

Limited Edition Deluxe Multi-Format Box Set Includes Milk Chocolate & White Chocolate Marbled Vinyl LPs, Two CDs, and One DVD Packaged as a Box of Chocolates!

This deluxe multi-format box set is created in the style of a classic box of quality chocolates featuring limited edition milk chocolate and white chocolate marbled vinyl.

In his '70s heyday, George Clinton took James Brown's musical revolution to the outer limits of the musical cosmos. His outrageous, jamtastic brain-melting innovations peaked with the prophetic 1975 Parliament classic Chocolate City.

"This stunning tribute has George, 73, leading his mighty band through a deliciously heady blend of jazz invention, rock overkill, Gospel sanctity, and much, much more" - Daily Mirror (The Ticket)

One weekend in 2014, the P-Funk genius George Clinton took residence at the legendary Metropolis Studios in West London... the P-Funk legend performed in an intimate show in front of 100 fans with numerous veterans of the classic line up, alongside very special guest Joss Stone. The result being Chocolate City: London, which pays homage to the seminal 1975 album...

The extended 12-inch versions of Pumpin It Up (really a remix with older P-Funk snippets added) and Generator Pop are great too.

I had wanted it but could not justify the investment since it came out but was finally able to cop a copy during a trip to Amoeba Records in Hollywood, CA, in September. This set exceeded my expectations, especially the DVD. The band sounds great and it is of such high quality and in a casual, rehearsal-like setting. Funktastic!

I REMEMBER THE POSTER & IRON-ON FROM THIS ALBUM! I know I still have that poster somewhere. at some point I would LOVE to have a pair of THOSE boots..!

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.

.

agreed! about listening to it on cd.. & man.. to get a mint copy of this on eBay - DEFINITELY a collector's item. to be cherished.

I'll see you tonight..

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 also (totally) agree that Parliament started to decline with this album. too many drugs. too many pots on the stove. too many defections..
