Speaking of the Time...Gigolos Get Lonely Too. Smooth funk.

Correcting an earlier faux pas. That Muddy Waters cut mentioned above is actually "Mannish Boy" but even funkier, IMO, is his electric version of "Let's Spend the Night Together." And I must add another Betty Davis cut. "Shoo-be-doop and Cop Him."

I saw George Clinton and P-Funk when I lived in Florida. That was the funkiest, dance-your-ass-off concert ever. And I smelled a lot of a certain type of funky smoke in the air too...hmmm, wonder what that could have been?

I'm not sure, but that might have been the best concert ever.

Hot Pants
Skintight

I had the pleasure of opening for the Ohio Players once, a colossal mismatch of styles but a great night. They played all the hits, but when hey stretched out and played they were major fusion players, not unlike Kool and the Gang. I really enjoyed it. Satch was still alive and with them. It was freakin' great.

Alot of people have no idea that many of these groups, Ohio Players, Kool and the Gang, etc,. are so much more than what we get from the radio. Their skill and musicianship is far, far beyond the Top 40.
