FunkadelicFunkadelic (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
One of the darkest records to ever come out of the Detroit soul scene! As you might guess from the title, the album is Funkadelic's first – and it's a swirling mass of psychedelic guitars, echoey drums, and bass-heavy riffing, all topped off by the band's harmony vocals, which sound like a perversion of the deep-Motown styles of groups like The Temptations or Undisputed Truth – taken into even headier territory! The original 5-member version of the group includes Eddie Hazel, Mickey Atkins, Tawl Ross, Bill Nelson, and Tiki Fulwood – all working here with some mindblowing George Clinton production! Tracks include classics like "I Bet You", "Mommy, What's a Funkadelic", "Music for My Mother", and "What Is Soul" – and the album's the stuff that made these guys a legend right out of the box!

FunkadelicTales Of Kidd Funkadelic (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1976. New Copy Gatefold ... $15.99 18.98
An oft-overlooked gem by Funkadelic – the group's last album for Westbound, and a record that really has them growing into a great new groove! Bootsy and Eddie Hazel have stepped aside for the set, but that gives Bernie Worrell plenty of room to work his magic on keyboards – in a way that really increases the spacier elements of the set, and almost trades a messed-up moogy sort of feel for the heady guitars of earlier years – a slippery kind of Funky Worm groove that we totally love! The set is self-described as "delightfully putrid" on the Pedro Bell cover – and we couldn't agree more! Titles include "Undisco Kidd", "Let's Take It To The People", "How Do Yeaw View You", "Butt-to-Butt Resuscitation" and "Take Your Dead Ass Home!". LP, Vinyl record album

FunkadelicToys ... LP
Westbound/Ace (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $26.99 31.98
A legendary record – and one that's well worth all the anticipation it's gotten over the years! The set features rare, previously unreleased material done by Funkadelic during their classic years at Westbound Records – some songs, and some studio jams – of the sort the group were famous for, especially during their time at Westbound! The songs are totally great – massively funky numbers that rank right up there with classics of the Cosmic Slop years – and the jams are almost even better, a rare opportunity to hear the genius collective at work in the studio – without any edits at all to get in the way! We'd easily rank this set right up there with Free Your Ass or America Eats Its Young – and after years of waiting, it's great to have this wonderful collection finally out for the masses! Songs include "Heart Trouble", "Talk About Jesus", and "The Goose That Laid The Golden Egg" – and jams include "Vampy Funky Bernie" and "Slide On In". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ FunkadelicUncle Jam Wants You ... CD
Priority, 1979. Used ... $9.99
One of our favorite Funkadelic albums ever – a tightly grooving classic that never lets up at all! There's a sense of perfection to everything here – one that really gets the group past their tripped-out early years, and firmly into the sublime territory George Clinton hit with Parliament – an amazing sound that's wrapped up perfectly on every single track – grooves that definitely raised the bar for a huge amount of mainstream funk acts who were popping up at the time. Production is never too slick, and there's still lots of tasty guitar licks wrapped up in the mix – and titles include the classics "Freak Of The Week" and "Not Just Knee Deep" – plus "Field Maneuvers", "Holly Wants To Go To California", and "Foot Soldiers".

Little BeaverJoey/Funkadelic Sound ... 7-inch
Cat, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $13.99
Nice early work from Little Beaver! "Joey" is one of his classics, and has a soulful bluesy groove, in the same vein as early Latimore and other Miami greats. "Funkadelic Sound" is the real winner, though – and has more of a James Brown funk groove than a George Clinton one – not that that's a problem for us! 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousBest Of Invictus/Hotwax Vol 2 – Psycha-Soula-Funkadelic ... CD
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
Freaky fuzzy soul from the mighty Invictus/Hot Wax records – home to early work by Parliament and a whole host of other great Detroit soul groups too! The grooves here really go past the ordinary – and show the label's love of a heavy bassline or fuzz-drenched guitar – elements borrowed from other parts of the Motor City scene, then reworked into some headier grooves for the 70s by the team of Holland-Dozier-Holland! Lots of the tunes share the same sort of heavy sound and righteous energy you'd find in late Motown work by Norman Whitfield – and titles include "Gimme Shelter" by Ruth Copeland, "Sunday Morning People" by Harrison Kennedy, "Psycha-Soula-Funkadelic" by The Politicians, "I Call My Baby Pussycat" by Parliament, "You've Been My Rock" by Warlock, "Everybody's Tippin" by Danny Woods, "Somebody's Been Sleeping" by 100 Proof, and "I Surrendered" by Glass House.

FunkadelicCosmic Slop ... LP
Westbound, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
One of our favorite early Funkadelic albums – and a real turning point for the group! Gone are the trippier guitar solos of earlier days, and in their place is a tighter approach to funk – one that has the band grooving hard and soulfully on shorter tracks that perfect the dark vision hinted at in the Maggot Brain years! The tunes are shorter, funkier, and catchier – and the vocals are especially great – so much so than on the title cut "Cosmic Slop" has harmonies so great you'd swear you were listening to late-Motown Temptations! Other tracks continue with a great soul-based focus, and include "You Can't Miss What You Can't Measure", "Nappy Dugout", "No Compute", and "Can't Stand the Strain" – and the record is packaged in a mind-blowing wraparound cover by Pedro Bell, the first of many the band would use!

✨✧ FunkadelicFirst Ya Gotta Shake The Gate (3CD set) ... CD
C Kunspyruhzy, 2015. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Leave it to George Clinton to keep on being productive over all these years – so much so that even after we haven't heard from Funkadelic for awhile, George hits us with a full 3CDs' worth of new material! The sound and style here continues that extrapolation of older P-Funk with newer modes that Clinton's been doing during recent revival modes – an approach that updates his older funk with touches from hip hop and contemporary R&B, but always at a level that still keeps that older Clinton spirit alive and well! And as usual, George has plenty of friends and longtime associates on board to help create a very collaborative sound – including Sly Stone, El DeBarge, Sidney Barnes, Fred Wesley, Garry Shider, and other legends from the P-Funk universe. Titles include "Baby Like Fonkin It Up", "If I Didn't Love You", "I Mo B Yodog Fo Eva", "First Ya Gotta Shake The Gate", "Roller Rink", "Jolen", "Dirty Queen", "You Can't Unring The Bell", "The Naz", and "Yellow Light".

This is the better of the two "best of" compilations on Westbound – and the one that has the freaky "goats head" cover on the front! Includes lots of fuzzy funk and cool messed-up early singles like "I Got A Thang, You Got A Thang, Everybody's Got A Thang", "Standing On The Verge Of Getting It On", "Cosmic Slop", "Funky Dollar Bill", and "A Joyful Process".

We never thought we'd recommend the combination of "Fish Chips & Sweat", but the tune is a mad funky monster – with an intro that's almost the funk equivalent of a John Cage prepared piano bit! "I Got A Thing" is more well-known, but an equally nice bit of fuzzed-out funkiness! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ FunkadelicMaggot Brain ... LP
Westbound, 1971. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing stuff – and arguably the greatest early Funkadelic album ever! The set moves past the simple fuzzy style of the group's debut, and the overly-stoned sound of Free Your Mind – and rockets into a heady funk style that's filled with sly social commentary and an incredibly dark vision of the future! The centerpiece of the album is the mindblowing "Maggot Brain" title track – a tune that begins with a chilling spoken intro, then slowly builds amidst washes and washes of post-Hendrix guitar. That cut then rolls into some shorter, funkier numbers that rank with some of the group's best ever – using the device of party-hearty energy to convey a sense of alienation and horror at the world. The whole thing's brilliant throughout – and apart from being a soul classic, the set should also rank as one of the greatest rock albums of all time! Titles include "Maggot Brain", "Super Stupid", "Back in Our Minds", "Can You Get to That", and "Wars of Armageddon". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ FunkadelicLet's Take It To The Stage ... LP
Westbound, 1975. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A tasty little album from Funkadelic – one that has Bootsy Collins joining the group, and really hitting the unique approach that would become the definitive P-Funk groove! And although tracks are shorter and even more focused, there's still a fair bit of guitar in the set – keeping the trademark Funkadelic sound in place, to set them aside from from the growing horn-heavy Parliament groove. Yet in both groups' work at the time, there's a growing emphasis on the rhythms at the bottom – a pulling up of the basslines in a way that was no doubt influenced by Bootsy's presence, and which would have a key influence on the sound of funk for years to come! Includes the massively infectious funk track "Get Off Your Ass and Jam", plus "Let's Take It To The Stage", "Be My Beach", "Baby I Owe You Something Good", "The Song Is Familiar", "No Head No Backstage Pass", "Atmosphere", "Stuffs & Things", and "Better By the Pound".

Westbound, 1974. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A blistering little set from Funkadelic – one that features the return of Eddie Hazel's guitar, finely honed to the leaner, more soul-based sound of the group in the mid 70s! The title is prophetic, as the group are really "standing on the verge" here – working hard to tighten up their sound from the more rock-based years, and moving into a catchier funk groove that would put them over the top for many records to come! The title cut "Standing On The Verge" is one of the most anthemic funk tracks you'll ever find – with a chorus and groove that will stay in your head for years after you first hear the song – and there's lots of other tasty tracks like that on the set, really honing the Funkadelic approach down into an incredibly powerful sound! Titles include "I'll Stay", "Standing On The Verge", "Good Thoughts Bad Thoughts", "Red Hot Mama", "Jimmy's Got a Little Bit of Bitch In Him", and "Sexy Ways". LP, Vinyl record album

Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An insane classic from one of the wildest funk bands ever! According to reports, George Clinton and the band cut this set in a marathon 48-hour stretch in the studio – working like mad all night and day long, after dropping a motherlode of some mighty fine acid! We don't know if that story's entirely true, but the music on the album certainly backs it up – as it's some of the band's freest, most open-ended, most heavy-jamming work ever recorded! Guitars dominate over funky bass and drums – and the whole thing's an amazing blend of music, swirled together into a non-stop psychedelic party that includes P-Funk gems like "Funky Dollar Bill", "Free Your Mind", "Eulogy and Light", and "I Wanna Know If It's Good To You".

ADC BandRoll With The Punches ... CD
Cotillion (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
Massive funk from the ADC Band – some lesser-known cats from the early 80s scene on Atlantic Records – but a group with a sense of soul and power that knocks over most of their contemporaries! For those who've ever doubted the influence of P-Funk on the rest of soul music, you only need look at a band like ADC – who've firmly adopted the slap-bass groove style of music, and perhaps polished it up a bit from the Parliament/Funkadelic sound of the late 70s. As with the P-Funk crew, too – ADC here sing on a number of familiar topics, as you'd guess from titles like "U Funk Ula", "Funk On Fire", "Roll With The Punches", "Girls", and "Give It Up". Fortunately, they do a pretty darn good job of it – and the record has a sound that's a lot more soulful than you'd expect, underpinned by a strong 80s groove. CD

✨✧ Bootsy's Rubber BandAhh...The Name Is Bootsy, Baby! (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $11.99
Massive work from Bootsy Collins – one of his best-ever solo albums, and a perfect summation of the P-Funk groove – focused strongly through Bootsy's own sense of stardom! George Clinton worked with Collins on production, and the album's as tight as the best Parliament or Funkadelic work of the time – particularly the latter on their killer 70s sides for Warner, which was also the home for Bootsy. The Horny Horns are helping out on this one, which gives the album a strong instrumental drive – but the real star is Bootsy, whose sexy vocals and good sense of soul keep things firmly on track throughout. Features the cuts "What's A Telephone Bill?", "Munchies For Your Love", "We Want Bootsy", "The Pinocchio Theory", and "Rubber Duckie". LP, Vinyl record album

bFuzzed out funk from the legendary Fugi! The groove is incredibly sinister – a blend of Detroit funk (ala The Counts, Funkadelic, and others in the Westbound crew), and some of the more guitar-based influence from the Hendrix soul generation (especially the styles that were beginning to show up on the Bar-Kays albums at the time!) Fugi have a groove that's gotta be heard to be believed – hard, heavy, and filled with soul – dipping down down down into the dirt on the bass, and riffing up to the top again on a wave of heavy guitars! 6 tracks in all – the complete Chess recordings by Fugi – and titles include "Mary Don't Take Me On No Bad Trip", "Revelations", "Jo Jo", "Save A Little", and "I'd Rather Be A Blind Man".

Casablanca/Real Gone, 1978. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
The pleasure principle is in full effect here – a really special sort of feeling that strongly shows off the female side of the Parliament/Funkadelic mothership! The album's got a groove that's way different than most female disco of the time – more offbeat and angular, thanks to funky backings from George Clinton and crew – with arrangements from Bernie Worell and Fred Wesley that have lots of great twists and turns! In a way, the mix of funk and club almost echoes the vibe of work on the P&P labels – but with a bit more punch and polish too, thanks to Clinton's great production. The whole thing's great – way more than just another female disco album – and titles include "Mr Melody Man", "Cookie Jar", "Love Amnesia", "Misunderstanding", "Are You Dreaming", and "Pleasure Principle".

Fuzzy and funky soul from Detroit! This LP compiles the group's first incredible album – Osmium – plus some other singles from the time. Parliament at this point are much closer to earlier Funkadelic than on their later work – rocking hard with a very guitar-heavy groove, sounding a lot more tripped out than when they're riding the mothership, and forming a key link between the Motown soul tradition and that of Detroit noise rockers like MC5 or The Stooges. Cuts include "Funky Woman", "Little Old Country Boy", "My Automobile", "Red Hot Mama", "Come In Out Of The Rain", and "I Call My Baby Pussycat". Very trippy, very acidy, and very very wild! CD

Westbound (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Rare tracks from one of the greatest soul labels ever – Detroit's legendary Westbound Records, the famous home of Funkadelic – but a source for countless many more grooves! This set features really rare singles and unreleased tracks from Westbound – a flurry of great soul tracks that's surprised even our Westbound-raised ears – with tracks that run from righteous soul to heavy funk, to great group harmonies, and more! There's nary a big name in the set – and instead, the whole thing really focuses on the hinterland of the Westbound scene – including some especially rare gems that were issued as singles by the even-smaller Eastbound label, who did some wonderfully groovy work in the early 70s. Titles include "Admit Your Love Is Gone" by Damon Shawn, "Old Fashioned Woman" by Unique Blend, "I'm Falling In Love" by Fantastic Four, "Tender Moments" by AC Tilmon & Denise LaSalle, "I Love You" by The Motivations, "More Love" by Emanuel Laskey, "What Am I Gonna Do" by Houston Outlaws, "I Don't Know How" by The Superlatives, "Trying Real Hard" by The Magictones, "You Can't Take This Love For You From Me" by Bob & Harold, "I'm Loving You You're Leaving Me" by The Magictones, "Does He Treat You Better" by Unique Blend, and "Rosetta Stone" by AC Tilmon & Detroit Emeralds.

VariousWestbound Funk – Masterful Funk From The Detroit Powerhouse Labels Of Eastbound & Westbound ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $21.99
The title's almost redundant – as the words "Westbound" and "Funk" mean virtually the same thing! From the late 60s through the mid 70s, Westbound was one of the key record labels in the sound of raw heavy funk – working with hit groups like Funkadelic and the Ohio Players to craft a sound that laid the blueprint for countless other groups of the time, and also featuring a wealth of obscurer artists with an even harder-hitting sound! The key styles of Westbound and related jazz label Eastbound were heavy and fuzzy ones – picking up off the heady and trippy styles of the late 60s Detroit scene, mixing things up with MC5 guitars, Norman Whitfield bass, and deep underground Tribe-styled jazz touches. This 20 track masterpiece is a brilliant summation of the important Westbound sound – and includes a few hits, some funky 45 classics, and an even bigger number of tracks we might not have heard otherwise! The notes are great, the tunes are super-funky, and the whole thing's one of the best funky collections you could ever hope to purchase. Titles include "You're Messing Up My Mind" by Albert Washington, "Back To Funk" by Robert Lowe, "You Caught Me Smilin" by The 19th Whole, "Conga Man" by King Errison, "Shake Your Head" by Spanky Wilson, "I Love You" by The Motivations, "I Don't Know What It Is But It Sure Is Funky" by Mighty Elegant, "Crazy Legs" by Donald Austin, "Stone Thing (part 1)" by Alvin Cash, "RPM" by Boots, "Funky World (part 1)" by Silky Vincent, "Get Funky Sweet A Little Bit" by Jackie Harris & The Exciters, "I'll Bet You" by Funkadelic, and "Why Not Start All Over Again" by The Counts.

George ClintonComputer Games ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... Around May 13, 2015
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".

ParliamentTrombipulation ... CD
Casablanca/Universal (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... Around May 13, 2015
Often overlooked, but a very tasty album of late grooves from Parliament! The album has the group getting a bit closer to the Funkadelic way of things – but as that group had dropped their heavy guitar sound by the mid 70s, and Parliament had picked up more of a funk groove, the two were totally interchangeable anyway. The album was the group's last during its classic run – and while it's not as totally essential as some of the early ones, there's still some excellent P-Funkiness going on, especially on the cuts "Agony Of Defeet", "Trombipulation", "Long Way Around", and "Let's Play House".

✨✧ Burnt SugarNot April In Paris – The Arkestra Chamber Live 01 At Banlieues Bleues ... CD
Trugroid, 2004. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A mesmerizing set of jazzy space funk from the ever-evolving Burnt Sugar collective – captured live at Banlieus Bleues in France, in March of '04! The Arkestra tag in the group's moniker couldn't be more appropriate for these cats – as the vibe indeed runs through the cestial groove of Sun Ra and electric Miles, but the crew also dips heartily into the playbook of prime Art Ensemble and the lowdown funky drive of Funkadelic. The crew for this live set includes the great sax core of Matana Roberts on alto and Petre Radu-Scafaru on tenor, Jason Di Matteo on acoustic bass, Jared Nickerson on electric bass, Julia Kent on cello, Rene Akan on guitar, Satch Hoyt of flute, Lewis Flip Barnes on trumpet, Trevor Holder and Chris Eddleton on drums, Bruce Mack on synth, plus a line-up of improvising vocalists that includes Lisala, Jeremiah and Justuce Dilla-X. Tracks include "Springtime For Chillin By Bruce Mack", "Half Moon Flippers", "Jungle Fibre", "Mazzafrique","Jeremiah The Gallic", "Held In Faith" featuring vocals by Lisala, "Panpipes And Sprites", "The Blood Of Pomegranates", Resurrection Rag" and more.

ParliamentAgony Of Defeat (one-sided promo single) ... 12-inch
Casablanca, 1980. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Great late funky material from Parliament oof the Trombonipulation album! Although the date of the single is quite old, "Agony Of Defeat" is an excellent funky track, with a strident soulful groove – and a sound that's very similar to Funkadelic's "Not Just Knee Deep", always a plus in our book! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Labels have some pen & a spot of price sticker residue.)

✨✧ ADC BandLong Stroke ... CD
Cotillion/Warner (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
ADC Band take a long stroke on the funky bass – borrowing all the best P-Funk elements from their Detroit counterparts – but also helping the music find a tighter, more focused groove too! ADC were a key part of that post-Parliament/Funkadelic generation who used George Clinton's best influences to find a new way of coming together – an approach to ensemble funk that may have taken it self more seriously than the P-Funk universe (especially in their earlier days) – but which also helped find a way to keep things going a lot longer at a time when George Clinton himself was flagging. The band are way sharper than the usual mainstream funk group of the time – and have that gritty, hard-working sound you'd expect from their image on the cover – and some soaring female vocals really help give their best songs a unique vibe. Titles include the Parliament tribute cut "Long Stroke" – plus "Fire Up", "Cause I Love You", "Baby Love", and "Just Another Song". CD

✨✧ Black MerdaFolks From Mother's Mixer ... CD
Funky Delicacies/Tuff City, 1971/1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavy duty fuzzy soul from Black Merda (aka Mer-Da) – the massive Black Merda and Long Burn The Fire LPs back-to-back on one CD! The Black Merda album has a distinct batch of influences that run from Funkadelic, to Hendrix, to Chicago electric blues – but since the recording (from 1970) was contemporaneous with most of those influences, we should give the group more credit than just listing others with a similar sound! Includes the great stoned track "Cynthy-Ruth", plus "Prophet", "Reality", "I Don't Want To Die", and "Over & Over". Long Burn The Fire is another great batch Hendrix-inspired funky rock, released under the moniker Mer-Da! The sound is definitely rock-heavy – with lots of trippy guitars riffing away in heavy fuzzy style – but the album's also a classic in the black rock vein, and there's enough funk in the mix to keep it on your turntable if you dig the rockier sound of the funky grooves! Cuts include "The Folks From Mother's Mixer", "Lying", "We Made Up", and "Long Burn The Fire". 19 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ Bootsy's Rubber BandThis Boot Is Made For Fonk-N ... LP
Warner, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Bootsy's still keeping the P-Funk flag flying high at the end of the 70s – arguably stepping out here with a sound that's got more of the Parliafunkadelicment elements intact than some of George Clinton's other spinoff groups! The tracks are long, and plenty jamming – still with plenty of star power from Bootsy upfront – but also some wonderfully tight rhythms from the rest of the players too, all in that mix of hard-rolling, and light-tripping funk modes that still set the P-Funk groups apart from the pack of imitators who'd cropped up in their wake! Titles include "Jam Fan (Hot)", "Bootsy Get Live", "Under The Influence Of A Groove", "Chug-A-Lug", "Oh Boy", and "Shejam". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)
