's tightening things up a bit from before, but still sounding plenty darn great – that classic Collins
groove in all its P-Funk glory! All the best elements are certainly in place – production by George Clinton and Bootsy
, horn arrangements by Fred Wesley, and the slinky soulful sound that made Bootsy
's albums some of the most enduring of the P-Funk posse. The album shows a bit of the transformation in soul bass playing that Bootsy
helped to foster during the late 70s – but it's still not as "whompin" as some of the many groups that were springing up in his wake – a good thing, to us, because so many of Bootsy
's imitators had a way of playing their bass way too much! Titles include "Mug Push", "Is That My Song", "It's A Musical", "Sound Crack", and "Fat Cat".
