This 1975/6 album founded and gave the P-Funk genre its name, featuring George Clinton, Bootsy and co at their most creative and sapced out funky.Supported by Bernie Worrell on surreal keyboards, Fred Wesley, Maceo Parker, Michael and Randy Brecker and Joe Farrell on horny horns, Bootsy’s stridding Bass with background vocals by soulsters inc Taka Khan (boom), Debra Wright and Sidney Barnes, the complete sound was unprecendented and fantastic. The album not only appealed to Clinton’s underground audience, but right across the board and was a massive Soul and Pop Chart hit, and founded a new movement. ‘P-Funk’ with its spoken commentary and rousing chorus immediately differented from anything that had come before, ‘Mothership Connection (Starchild)’ still kicks today with some great riffs and melodies and ‘Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Off The Sucker)’ the albums most conventional groove even became a US top 15 pop hit. ‘Unfunky UFO’, ‘Handcuffs’ and ‘Supergroovalisticprosifunkstication’ keep the funk groove going. One of the most classic funk albums of all time.

    I purchased this album using the Soulbrother ideas/ inspiration link. So glad, what a great funk album from start to finish. Sometimes we focus on trying to find the new but in this case go back and the best is right here on this album.
