One of the most important albums ever made.
on 4 February 2001
People talk about 'The Beatles' and 'The Stones, 'The Beach Boys' and 'The Velvet Underground' and say how wonderful and important they are. All true of course. But people seem to forget how great 'Parliament' were. Just listen to 'Mothership Connection'. This album came out in 1975 and just for the bass playing and George Clinton's bizare take on history and the future was light years ahead of it's time. Jazz and soul and of course 'The Funk' all combine to make one of the most staggeringly original albums ever made. It's also one of the most funniest and funkiest albums I own.
