This is a record promo event but I'm wondering if Bootsy is done performing or not. Glad I got to see him in 2015.

This album has got me wondering if he's the bassist of Funkadelic's Take Your Dead Ass Home from Tales of Kidd Funkadelic. He slips a bass lick with a very similar arrangement on Thera-P.

Here's the last update I could find about Bootsy's health--hopefully he will tour again!

Bootsy Collins Shares Health Update

Bootsy Collins

Last week, we reported on funk legend Bootsy Collins being forced to cancel his upcoming tour dates due to a medical emergency. Collins has now had surgery to remove a tumor that was in his ear and took to Facebook to update his fans.

“Ahh, Funkateers! We made it out of surgery by the Grace of the “One,'” he wrote. “Now I gotta get my hearing back in my right ear. The tumor was attached to my Ear Drum, which has affected my equilibrium as well. Keep Holdin’ me up Funkateers! (SHARE THE LOVE VIBES & PRAYERS! Let their P-Moe-Funk!)”

Besides the good news, Collins also shared that he will be working with guitarist Buckethead on a new album as soon as he is back to normal. We’re continuing to wish Bootsy a speedy recovery!

I think Come back, Bootsy should have been the closing song. My opinion on full first listen--a solid album for the most part that combines young and old, new and ole skool in a smooth groove from start to finish. Well done. Bootsy's finger prints are all over this album. Even if someone doesn't like all the songs--there are enough out of 15 songs for a full album to satisfy the Funk Unsatiated. wink

Now, George better bring on Medicaid Fraud Dog like he keeps talking about! lol

That's why you're better off just buying it when it comes out, not pre-ordering it.

Yeah, I know, but I wanted the free poster which was ruined by the company the record company hired to mail the stuff. razz lol Anyway, listening to this album for the second time today and I like it even better than the first time. At the moment, Hot Saucer is my favorite. Makes me wanna dance even though my feet are killing me. lol

Having listened several times I have to say it's the usual I've come to expect from Bootsy since about 1982. About five good tracks (imo) and the rest just kinda meh.

Your opinion, not mine. There are some great songs on this album and it flows from beginning to end. Although I think that Come Back, Bootsy should have been the last track.
