4.0 out of 5 stars Just as I remembered it 20 Nov 2011
By Isis
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Parliament were not my overall favourites of the 70's funk bands even though they were interchangeable with Funkadelic - but Funkadelic music was harder and raw with much more edge. Still, this is a good CD with some good tracks and well worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clinton fan 26 Dec 2000
By Ethel M. Powers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
George Clinton was as much a pioneer as Jimi Hendrix and The Beatles. His psychodelia in music cannot be limited to just that era. The words to the songs are the mark of genius and the group gathered around him always puts in a superior performance. This is a timeless piece that should be in every funk fan's collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars GET YOUR FUNK ON!!!!!! 10 Mar 2003
By J. Worthen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In my opinon this is the best compilation offered by Parliament. As a do or die funkateer of the group for close to 30 years this CD doesn't get any better.

4.0 out of 5 stars More songs but less order than The Bomb (Greatest Hits). 18 Jan 2000
By PFunkster - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The music on this, or any Parliament/Funkadelic CD, deserves five stars. As a compilation, however, I'm only giving it four stars. The liner notes and the number of songs is an improvement over the previous Parliament compilation (The Bomb/Greatest Hits). The order in which the songs are presented, however, isn't. The Bomb presented the songs in chronological order giving you a good feel for how Parliaments music progressed. This compilation, however, doesn't present the songs in a recognizable order. That takes away from the overall feel of the CD. It's still a great PFunk compilation but I recommend looking at The Bomb first. In my opinion, which one you decide to get after comparing the two is just a matter of personal taste.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic 18 Mar 2000
By Mecca Egypt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album includes all of Parliament's classic cuts. I might add that a majority of the songs still get heavy airplay on radio stations across the country.
