Funkadelics 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 Worrells 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.
Top Customer Reviews
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.
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...
