The first reason why funkateers anywhere should buy this album is that it bares all the hallmarks of a George Clinton production; the second reason is that Bootsy is talented enough in his own exuberant right to take Clinton's ideas and make them his own on this his second solo LP.
The first half of "Aah.. The Name's Bootsy Baby!" is fun, riotous and unutterably funky in the Parliament party style - with great beats, chants, funny lines and characters inflected with the kind of optimism and positive self-image that has too long been absent from urban black music.
However, my personal favourite tracks are the slinky "What's a Telephone Bill?" and the sublime "Munchies for Your Love", from the more chilled second half of the album. Bootsy's own goofy idiosyncratic delivery somehow makes the experience all the more intimate, sly, sexy and immaculately stoned - reminding us that sexiness is not all always about thrustings and moanings but is also about playfulness, archness and sensuality.
A great grooving album which lets you move your dancing feet and then encourages you to kick back with that special person and take it as it comes.
