George ClintonComputer Games ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
Great post-Parliafunkadelicment work from George Clinton – surely the biggest hit of his albums for Capitol – especially since it features the singles "Atomic Dog" and "Loopzilla"! We'll be honest in saying that at the time this one came out, as die-hard Detroit funk fans, we remember thinking "oh gosh, George has lost it" – but from the perspective of many years later, the record sure sounds like classic P-Funk to us – really picking up where the last few Funkadelic and Parliament albums left off! The album sports a great Pedro Bell cover, features some nice work with Bootsy, includes the hits "Atomic Dog" and "Loopzilla" – and also features some lesser-known gems that include "Pot Sharing Tots", "Get Dressed", "Computer Games", and "One Fun At A Time".

George ClintonNubian Nut/Free Alterations ... 12-inch
Capitol, 1983. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $0.99
"Nubian Nut" is more of the Atomic Dog formula – kind of a popping bass groove that was the inherited legacy of P-funk that every other band was ripping off at the time, and rap-like vocals that George would probably never claim were rap! "Free Alterations" is the real charmer here – a sweet mellow soul track with a midtempo stepping groove, great harmony vocals, and a sound that's very different than any other Clinton tune we can think of! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Cover and labels have a name in pen.)

NytroNytro ... LP
Whitfield, 1977. Very Good+ ... $3.99
One of a number groups that Norman Whitfield was working with during the late 70s – the most famous of which was Rose Royce, and perhaps the least famous of which was Nytro. The group's got a sound that's similar to Rose Royce, with a mix of male and female vocals, and a basic style that's mostly funky soul, but which sounds even better on the ballads. The album's got a great spacey electric ballad called "Dreaming", which could have been lifted off of one of the early albums by RR – and it's got a number of bass-heavy funk numbers like "Atmosphere", "Trick Bag", "What It Is", and "Atomic Funk". LP, Vinyl record album

P Funk All StarsLive At The Beverly Theater, In Hollywood ... CD
Westbound (UK), 1983. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A nice live snapshot of a later P Funk incarnation, circa 1983 – with players like Dennis Chambers and Michael Hampton aboard the mothership with Clinton's family of funk all stars! The rest of the crew includes includes stalwarts Bernie Worrell, Eddie Hazel, Blackbird McKnight, Maceo Parker, Mudbone Cooper and George Clinton working hard to extend their legendary style of live funk into the 80s. There's a slow build up of energy that's works well – kicking off slowly but surely with a laidback intro and band intro before busts open in a big way, and from there it's one exciting classic after another 'til the very end! Includes lengthy live riffs on P-funk classics like "Cosmic Slop", "(Not Just) Knee Deep", "Maggot Brain", "Atomic Dog"and "Flashlight", "Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Off The Sucker)", "Do That Stuff", "Cosmic Slop" plus a medley of "Let's Take It To The Stage", "Mothership Connection (Starchild)" and "I Call My Baby Pussycat" in a nearly 100 minute set!

✨✧ George Clinton/Parliament/FunkadelicMothership Connection – Live From Houston ... LP
Capitol, 1986. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A bit misleading – since only side 1of the album's a concert recording, and the notes don't even give a date for that! Still, it's supposed to be prime Parliament/Funkadelic work, and the side includes the tracks "Do That Stuff", "Let's Take It To The Stage", "Get Off Your Ass & Jam", and "Doctor Funkenstein". Side two features 3 tracks from other Clinton albums on Capitol – not live, but in the original versions – "Atomic Dog", "Double Oh-Oh", and "Bullet Proof". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Undisputed TruthMethod To The Madness/Smokin' ... CD
Warner/Robinsongs (UK), 1976/1979. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two gems from The Undisputed Truth – back to back in a single package! First up is Method To The Madness – a killer classic from the second chapter of the Undisputed Truth – that time when the group stepped away from their Motown home, and followed producer/creator Norman Whitfield to his own label in California! The shift of record companies also marks a cool shift in styles too – an approach that still has all the bold, bassy elements you'd know from the earlier hits – but one that also has some fuller, more cosmic elements too – which are hinted at by the image on the cover! The set begins with a weird electronic spoken number that's almost experimental – then brings up the bass for a bit of heavy funk, while also using electric elements in a way that really points the way to sounds that other big funk groups would cop at the start of the 80s – but which really sound fresh here in the hands of Undisputed Truth. Titles include "Sunshine", "Take A Vacation From Life (And Visit Your Dreams)", "Life Ain't So Easy", "You + Me = Love", "Cosmic Contact", "Hole In The Wall", and "Let's Go Down To The Disco". Smokin has The Undisputed Truth still going very strong at the end of the 70s – working with original producer Norman Whitfield, in a groove that's every bit as wonderful as their early years! There's a killer mix of funk and deeper soul here that few other acts could handle this well – a way of hitting the flashy funk of Sly & The Family Stone or Graham Central Station – but also not falling into any showbiz traps, either – in a mode that really his the group not only respecting the role of each member, but also working together in a very cohesive way on the album. The result is a great little set that balances funky grooves with some excellent cosmic soul cuts – supported by great session work from giants like Wah Wah Watson, Walt Downing, and Jack Ashford. A few cool keyboard lines further cement the sound of the record – and titles include "Show Time", "Space Machine", "I Can't Get Enough Of Your Love", "Misunderstood", "Sandman", "Atomic Funk", and "Talkin To The Wind".
