Has anyone else seen this site?
I think it needs some work (and they say it’s a work in progress), but it’s already pretty dope.
I find it particularly interesting because they’ve already done exactly what I was hoping to do one day, which was amass all the recording/playing/producing credits on every p-funk recording into one place, into a sort of database where it could all be played with, for curiosity’s sake.
For example, I often wonder, who are the most important p-funk members of all time, after the obvious George, Bootsy and Bernie? An easy way to begin answering that question would be to know who was featured on the greatest number of recordings, and in what capacities (songwriting>guitar>keyboard>producing>drums, or whatever your preference is), and perhaps just as importantly, on which recordings (the 70s stuff is more essential listening and way more critical to the p-funk legacy). And this site basically has all that information collected, for your perusal.
It’s ridiculously complete - too complete, even. Because Maceo, Bootsy, etc used to play with James Brown, his entire output is listed on the site, along with all the credits for his recordings. And all the credits for other artists who featured a p-funk member before. Even all the Beatles’ recordings are listed there, and I can’t quite tell why. Is it the Billy Preson connection, or something else?
