Junie Morrison

I just listened to the George Clinton Family series again and realized that I had totally forgotten how absolutely motherfunking great Junie Morrison was! As a multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter, he was on the same level as Prince and Stevie Wonder, yet he never became a superstar like they did. I know he made solo albums, so which ones would you Rubber fans & funkateers recommend?

Bread Alone is the pick of the bunch for me, the bass line on "Seaman First Class (Jock Rock)" is a joy to behold.

Totally agree he was very underated and deserved to have been bigger.

His first three albums are immense! Funky as hell and so creative and ahead of his time.

Major talent but his solo projects never moved me.

Junie is one of those growers, imo. I didn't really get his stuff the first time around. Now...I wish there were more of it to listen to. He was a great, great musician.
