George Clinton’s Family Series Vol. 2 “P” Is The Funk [coll] – [AEM Record Group, The]

Naysayer   1/14/2014   CD, Soul

What can I say but….. HELL YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!! George Clinton’s Family Series says it all. Released in 1993, this is the third in Clinton’s Family Series and it is killer. It has the familiar faces of Parliament and Funkadelic as well as Bootsy. That means bass heavy funk reaching down deep into your inner Funkateer funkstressness. There are some surprises like Jessica Cleaves doing Paul McCartney’s “My Love”, with Minnie Ripperton vocal stylings and oh soooooo good cheese electric piano 1990’s style. “Think Right” by Parlet and the Brides gets the jam going nonstop. Infectious beyond a doubt. Jimmy G does “Shove On” which may be my current favorite thing to say: and it is Clinton’s younger brother. Shove on!!!!! The Brides of Funkenstein add there first recording. BUT really I wanna ask, can you say TRAYLEWD? Traylewd’s song “Personal Problems” is THE song. Just listen and try to think otherwise. Track 13 is an interview with Clinton and family who are reviewing the whole album, telling tidbits about each song. Track 14 is Bootsy and Clinton doing commercials. Essential. And remember “all I wanna do is funk with you baby, all I wanna do is funk.” So, really, where are volumes 1 and 2?
