Product Description

Product Description

• Funkadelic’s wild fourth album remastered from the original tapes for the first time in 15 years. This sprawling epic sees the introduction for the first time to a P-Funk record of Bootsy and Catfish Collins, Boogie Mosson and Frank Waddy, all of whom would be central to the Funkadelic story.

• This CD contains the full double album, plus the single version of ‘Loose Booty’ and the previously commercially unavailable radio edit of Bernie Worrell’s instrumental masterpiece, ‘A Joyful Process’.

• The package includes in-depth notes from Funk expert and series consultant Dean Rudland.

• Booklet includes full colour facsimile of the original artwork, as well as contemporary ads and memorabilia.

good album with some filler tracks and some not so good lead vocals from george clinton.Bootsy's first appearance on a paliament/funkadelic album . With the original band falling appart, the direction this album took is less coherent than the earlier albums . Making it overall the weakest of the early funkadelic albums. but still worth having.

It's 1972 and the Funkadelic mob have decided to modify their style once again. This is one of the things that makes Funkadelic such a good band, because while some elements are maintained others evolve. On this album there are strings for the first time, slower sly & the family grooves and things have been tidyed up a bit production wise.

First track gives the game away, 'You hit the...' begins as a great upbeat Funkadelic groove piece, breaking halfway into the kind of country/blues funk they absolutely love and then with 2 minutes to go they blend the whole lot. A melodica even pops up - that's no harmonica... Anyway, it's got a polished feel absent from previous works but sounds great. The other thing that gives the album a different feel is the shortness of most of the tracks and therefore there are a lot more of them than usual. This is because they are definitely attempting to get a Sly & family feel together. The similarities - group male/female vocals, strings and slowed down soul grooves, loads more instruments (conga etc.) - are really striking and apparent on the majority of tracks.
The 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 10th especially.

It doesn't stop it from being a great album and if I was rating this on the basis of other artists, I'd probably give it 5 stars. But this isn't Funkadelics best work. Let's take it to... takes the concepts here and makes them Funkadelics own not just a reproduction of another artist.

Worrell's keys really come to the fore and define the feel of this album. A Joyful Process is an absolute monster funky-clav groove, with some fairly baroque arranging in evidence: country tinged string lines, and 'Jesus Loves You' nursery-rhyme guitar breaks!
Loose Booty is chicken-scratch greazzzy guitar fonk incarnate, with Worell's psychedelic clav noodlings once more centre stage. Both of these tracks have killer drum grooves, sadly it's not clear who played them, but the genesis of this album was infamously long and tortured as Clinton's whacked out troupe went through various lineups and recording locations beore finally birthing this excellent set.
The two tracks mentioned make this well worth the price of poichase, but there's loads more to enjoy here: I'll let you discover that fo' yo'self tho...

HASH(0x9694b4ec) out of 5 stars Funkadelic concept album? 5 Aug. 2014
By Michael Brewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As a P Funk freak I love the early days the most but I found this album puzzling. I think this is a failed experiment with seriousness and politics. I've read that George wanted this to be his Sgt Pepper, but the best part of P Funk is its silliness as opposed to James Brown's serious variety of funk.What's up with the steel guitar usually found only in redneck country music and where did George find a steel guitar player in Toronto and the U.K., where this puzzling album was recorded ? I was shocked to find out that this album contained Bootsy's debut in songwriting and singing. Honestly I can see why 'Loose Booty' and Bernie's funky instrumental 'A Joyful Process' are the only single released from this album, as they are truly the funk in this album. Thank goodness that George abandoned the Bob Dylanish political songs , steel guitars, and Process Church nonsensical liner notes.Maybe it was Pedro Bell's artwork and jargon that inspired George to go back to the P Funk as we know it.
