Six Degrees of P-Funk: The Best of George Clinton & His Funk Family (feat. Belita Woods)

Öffnen Sie iTunes, um Hörproben zu wählen und Musik zu kaufen und zu laden.


This compilation features some of the best solo material from the Parliament/Funkadelic crew during the late '70s and '80s under the direction of George Clinton. Ever the entrepreneur, Clinton had farmed his aggregate of loose booties to no less than five respective (major) labels. While technically Parliament was recording for Casablanca and Funkadelic was signed to Warner Bros., Clinton's short-lived Uncle Jam imprint was issued and distributed by Columbia/Epic. It is here that listeners find the 15 tracks — nine of which are making their debut in the digital domain — that comprise Six Degrees of P-Funk: The Best of George Clinton & His Funky Family (2003). While Clinton is the central figure, his most enduring contributions to each of these projects is to simply allow all of the artists involved to develop their unique substrata of funk — which he does and they most certainly do. The disc rightfully kicks off with a pair of cuts from the P-Funk All Stars' The Awesome Power of a Fully Operational Mothership (1996). "If Anybody Gets Funked Up (It's Gonna Be You)" is a sample-heavy and highly danceable side featuring new breed funk-a-teers Erick Sermon of EPMD and MC Breed. "Funky Kind (Gonna Knock You Down)" contains a midtempo groove featuring a trademark full-ensemble vocal supporting Clinton's lead. This is followed by two cuts from bassist Bootsy Collins off of his sole Columbia long-player, What's Bootsy Doin'? (1988). His hardcore "Party on Plastic" and Prince sound-alike "Leakin'" are included here. Former Ohio Player Walter "Junie" Morrison climbed aboard the Mothership in the late '70s. From his solo projects Bread Alone (1980) and Junie 5 (1981) are the melodic and synthesizer-laden "Love Have Taken Me Over" and "Rappin' About Rappin'." Although business differences put the two at odds, Clinton and Jerome "Bigfoot" Brailey collaborated momentarily on the all-star side project Mutiny, whose hard-hittin' "Lump"and soulful "Funk 'n' Bop" come from their highly controversial and confrontational Mutiny on the Mamaship (1979). Philippe Wynne's Wynne Jammin (1980) was the only long-player that the vocalist issued on Uncle Jam and stands as one of the rare non-P-Funk-related projects that Clinton produced. The former lead singer for the Spinners includes both the ballad "Never Gonna Tell It" and the beat-heavy dance track "Breakout." The unmistakable sound of Bootsy Collins returns for the seminal hearty party fare "Freak to Freak."This is followed by the final non-P-Funk-related tracks from Champaign, IL, natives Micro Wave. The band — led by multi-instrumentalist Michael Lane — scored a Top 15 R&B platter with one of the tunes featured here, titled "Misunderstood."

The mastermind of the Parliament/Funkadelic collective during the 1970s, George Clinton broke up both bands by 1981 and began recording solo albums, occasionally performing live with his former bandmates as the P.Funk All-Stars. Born in Kannapolis, NC, on July 22, 1940, Clinton became interested in doo wop while living in New Jersey during the early '50s. He formed the Parliaments in 1955, based out of a barbershop back room where he straightened hair. The group had a small R&B hit during 1967,...
