_The Mothership Connection - Live from Houston_ (1986)

Track Listing:

Let's Take It To the Stage/Do That Stuff 6:55
Mothership Connection/Dr. Funkenstein 8:19
Get Off Your Ass and Jam/Night of the Thumpasorous Peoples 8:50
Atomic Dog 4:15
Double Oh-Oh 5:47
Bulletproof 6:19


GZ: Both this and the other live albums are nice, but they fail
to capture P-Funk's incredible onstage energy. I think there's a
video to go with this album, but beware that side 2 is just
tracks from George Clinton Solo albums which you'll probably
already have by the time you get this... Great cover art.

RC: See studio versions for songwriting credits.

GZ: **** RC: **** MM: ****


RC: the P-Funk All Stars Albums is better than many Parliament
albums. They wheel out Sly Stone for a couple of tracks, and
"Pumpin' It Up" and "Copy Cat" should be much better known.

MM: Urban Dancefloor Guerillas is good. "Pumpin' It Up" is a
great dance track. Mostly winners here.

GZ: ? RC: ****1\2 MM: ****


RC: Until the 4-CD Greatest Hits Live set came out, this was the
best released live album from the funk mob. A classic lineup and
all the greatest hits. The "Maggot Brain", "Give Up The Funk"
and "Flash Light" are especially excellent. Note that the
cassette version does not include "One Nation". Writing credits
for these songs are noted in their studio release.

MM: I like the version of "Cosmic Slop" here. Of course, any
version of "Cosmic Slop" is great.

Rating: RC: ****1/2

Comments: RC: If this is George Clinton's answer to the bootleg concert
tapes that keep popping up, it's an eloquent one. Song credits are listed
when they differ from the originals, and they differ wildly here. Perhaps
this occurred as a result of putting this project together quickly.
There is an incredible assortment of live material here, although the
best by far is the 1978 material. The 1972 material is not of the greatest
quality, but it is very interesting. They also wisely put on one of
their best live triumphs ever: "Comin' Round The Mountain"! This is
from the Rocky Mountain Shakedown boot that's very popular, and it blows
away the original studio tune. The 1993 material is a little weaker,
but there's a lot of variety here. It's impossible to capture the full
experience of a P.Funk show on tape, but this comes pretty close.

_A Fifth of Funk (Clinton Family Series Volume V_ (1994)


_Dance On the Wild Side (remixes)_ (1994)




Vol I: Contains four brilliant things: "Go Fer Yer Funk", wonderful Parliament
tune from 1980. James Brown pops up! "These Feets Were Made for Dancing",
a great Ron Dunbar tune. Then there's Sly Stone doing "Who In the Funk do
You Think You Are", all by himself. Then there's Blackbyrd McKnight doing
it all in a cover of Cream's "Sunshine of Your Love". On this, as on all
volumes, George comes on at the end in an interview, talking about all of
the acts, telling how they got their start or how they happened to be in
Detroit in the late 70's. Most of the stuff here is from the late 70's
and early 80's so there's lots from Ron Dunbar, Ron Ford, TreyLewd, Jessica
Cleaves, Andre Foxx, David Spradley, etc.

Vol II: The highlight is "Clone Communicado" a 76 tune that they used to hand
out at concerts. Very nice. Other highlights include two Parliament tunes:
"Does Disc Go With D.A.T." and "Every Booty Get on Down". Bootsy wrote that
last one. There's also a long jam called "P is the Funk".

Vol III: Things really start to get hot here. There's a song that should
have been on Electric Spanking called "May Day"--what a great song! The
Horny Horns chime in with "Lickey Split", a typical Horns number, which is to
say that it kicks ass. Junie pops up with a cool tune, and I'm a
great admirer of his--he was the genius behind One Nation, y'know.

Vol IV: Wow! There's a Parliament tune from 75 called "Live Up" with some
incredible singing--it rivals "Hand Cuffs". Then there's yet another great
Electric Spanking outtake called "I Angle", another sci-fi song, with Hampton
going wild. Superb. There are also two great Junie tunes. The only negative
are some weak fringe group tunes from groups like Nick Savannah and Dwarf.

As for the Sample Series, I have volumes I & II. Surprisingly listenable,
I love to put it on in the morning before I have to go to work--great for
sound bites. George is putting out some quality products, I'm really glad.
The jewel is the live set, and I also really like Smell My Finger, though
GC's voice sounds a little tired at times.
