the great P-FUNK album poll!

Postby Count Machuki » 31 May 2016, 17:13

I bet you I'll miss a couple on the poll options, but here we go!

Which ones are the greatest?
Parliament or Funkadelic?
Were they R&B, rock, funk, PROG?
Where did it all go wrong?
Better live or on record?
Your favorite tracks?

SIX album releases in 1978!

Fairly recent for Clinton, I'm a big fan of this one.

Yeah, I guess I should have added another six just to max out the poll options, but I got kind of lazy at the end.

Anybody ever heard that Bernie Worrell record? Seems like it should be awesome. It's on Spotify, so I think I'll check it out when i can...

And is Mothership Connection any good apart from the absolute killer blast of a genius masterpiece that is 'Give Up The Funk'?

I always preferred those mid-period Funkadelic albums.

What's that insane spoken shit at the start of the track on America Eats Its Young where the voice is slowed down and then sped up? It cracks me up every time!

I pretty much love everything from The Parliamnets up to about One Nation..., and from there on i still love to cherry-pick heaps of great tracks from the records i know. A phenomenal aggregation.

The P-F era is rightly celebrated for the unique and incredible music they made, but i just wanna give a shout out to the Parliaments era stuff too, in particular this classic piece of 7" wax...





'(I Wanna) Testify' b/w 'I Can Feel The Ice Melting' was one of the first singles i ever bought, and played it to death. Seminal sounds for a wide-eyed young sprog, and i would be very keen to find other George Clinton Prod. ever after.

I hate to use the "o" word, but what's the big deal with Maggot Brain?

'Hardcore Jollies' deserves more love.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?
