What to Buy Next

I was thinking the same thing as you. There is some p-funk involvement on this album, but it would be nice to know exactly who and exactly on which tracks. those older albums don’t always have the most detailed information, they often just give credit at the end and then you’re left wondering exactly what they contributed.

Do u know what one of the most critically overlooked and criminally underrated albums with P-Funk involvement is?
Jeannie Reynolds’ “Cherries, Bananas & Other Fine Things”.
Sometimes I forget what’s on it then one will come up in my shuffle mix and I go damn this chyt is heavy.

And is one of the more, er, entertaining songs about fruit you’ll ever hear. Absolute filth! I loves it. :joy:

Tidal (for once) has come up trumps and has Cherries AND One Wish. Happy happy joy joy. :metal:

Live and Kicking - George Clinton and the P-Funk All-Stars.

Shakey Ground by The Temptations features Eddie Hazel and Billy Nelson

How about the George Clinton Chocolate City: London P-Funk Live at Metropolis? It was a Record Store day release. Contains parts of the show on vinyl, all of it on 2 CDs, and a DVD of the performance?

Not sure if that falls into what you’re collecting but I didn’t see it on the list.

I downloaded it but it’s too huge and extravagant an item for me. If it came out in a “just CD” format, I’d be all over that.

This thread is so out of date! I believe I have 217 P-funk CDs now.

Got the Mr Fiddler album on cd the other day from Amazon. It’s boss. It swiiings. It has Eddie on it. :metal:

I’m into this…into this my peoples…

Great album. I followed a link off Frankie Kash and found Funky People of Mothership Connection - Transfonkcation.

Didn’t see it mentioned anywhere but it’s boss. :metal:

I’m the same as you similar age, and have been buying P funk CDs and vinyl for the last 23 years.
The 1986 mtume album theatre of the mind has Bootsy all over it, and most of Malcolm McLaren’s Bootzilla Orchestra album was produced by Bootsy.
Another CD your are missing is P funk all stars if it’s not on P Vine, it’s not P Funk. That was a mail away in Japan featuring 3 unreleased Ron ford and Donnie Sterling tracks.

Yeah, I think we all know that one exists, we just also know we’ll never get it!

I got If it ain’t on P vine, it ain’t P funk about 2 years ago. It did take me a good 3 years of looking for on Ebay.

There are a some new singles (2021/2022) from Tony Camm (and the Funk All Stars). I would recommend that.

How fares the collection these days?

It sparked my own off the back of your list - smaller in scope, it’s now nonetheless out of control…

I note Kendra Foster is not in there but you probably have by now I assume. I’d love that album but it appears quite hard to come by - and by hard, I mean to say it’s not Amazon.

It’s on Tidal, but.

It’s been a few years so I should update. Of course back then I had all the “core” stuff and it was a matter of branching out from there. I would say I’ve done that. I came around to Bernie’s stuff in a big way (even getting all the stuff he was a major part of), then there was Zapp, who is maybe technically not p-funk in that it contains none of the core P-funk members but on the other hand, it seems to have worked its way into p-funk canon nonetheless. And for the clinton/parliament/funkadelic stuff, filled in a lot of singles (at least the ones with unique tracks on them) and live stuff (at the time it was so overwhelming i thought I’d stay away). I got into Junie, all the p-funk ladies, some Fred Wesley, dabbled in the JB’s, and a little random stuff here and there:

The bottom two are the only two I have picked up in the past 13 calendar months. There’s very little else I can get. I have still bought some things that came out digital-only but there are only two p-funk CDs I’m actively seeking: Alive in Spain and When the City.

Holy shit :joy:

I thought I had ‘most’ of what I wanted now bar a few hard to find items: space Cadets, Bernie’s first album, Rest in P. A few others…

But then I wouldn’t have thought I’d be buying Incorporated Thang band a short while ago and it hit my mat this morning, so.

I’m definitely up for some Zap purchases. Close enough for me to the P and I was mad for Zap anyway. I had the 45 of Wanna Be Your Man when I was a kid.

I have all the JBs I’m after - well I will once James Brown’s Funky Divas arrives. Definitely a spot for Roger in the next wave of stuffs. And some Headhunters - the Blackbird stuff.

Godmoma Here would be nice…

Nice! I still need to get Police Doggy. But that Daniel Johns album doesn’t have any pfunk connection, right? Or am I missing something?

Actually, on one track on Daniel John’s album, P-Nut Johnson’s niece contributes handclaps.

…Yes, you’re right, that was in the list by accident.

haha there’s always more isn’t there.
I’ve got a load of pfunk on vinyl including offshoot stuff like Mutiny, Zapp, Junie etc but there is still a load in your list I haven’t got.
