i gotta look through my albumns (yes, albumns) but i know a funkadelic tune will be on my list somewhere.
geeze.. if i add some of my music on this post will that let everyone know I was born BEFORE dinosaurs?
Body Heat - James Brown
If You Want Me To Stay - Sly Stone
I'm A Man - Muddy Waters (Electric Mud version)
Don't You Call Her No Tramp - Betty Davis
I Can't Believe - Mothers' Finest
Release Yo'self - Larry Graham and Grand Funk Railroad (?)
eoe - your list intrigued me since I haven't heard many of these tracks - (btw - I just checked... and it's called "Release Yourself" by Graham Central Station and I'm trying to find the MP3 right now - thanks!!!
Good grief! Grand Funk Railroad???
Mothers Finest....hell yeah......
oh yeah, and Flashlight. And Jungle Love.
oh yessss, Bi-Polar -- Flash Light by Parliament --funkalicious
Jungle Boogie - Kool and the Gang
She's a Bad Mama Jama - Carl Carlton
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.
Play that funky music white boy.
How did we all forget the incredible Ohio Players?
oops I see jasmine mentioned the Ohio Players...Love Rollercoaster hasn't got that greasy funk on it though...kinda top 40....just my opinion...
"Pain" is my personal favorite Ohio Players cut.
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.
