Back in 1975 Parliament found the perfect groove
releasing two seminal albums in the same year. First up
was "Chocolate City" that celebrated the love of the
band generated by Washington DC and this was
followed up by "Mothership Connection", widely
considered to be the perfect example of P-Funk.
George Clinton led his Funkadelic/Parliament troops
into the galaxy long before Star Wars came along to
join in on the fun. Featuring a galactic line-up that included Bootsy
Collins, Bernie Worrell, Maceo Parker, Fred Welsey,
Gary Shiner, Glen Goins and even the Brecker Bothers
on horns this album kicks funky butt from the opening
blast of 'P-Funk (Wants To Get Funked Up)' right to the
very last drop of 'Night Of The Thumpasorus Peoples'.
It's a joyous album and as well as spawning the 'Star
Child' character on the title track saw the band start to
tour with a spaceship as a stage prop paid for by
record label Casablanca. "Mothership Connection"
went top 20 and platinum stateside. Three singles were
taken from the album including an edit of 'Give Up The
Funk (Tear The Roof Off That Sucker)' that sold a
million copies. As time has passed and the legend of Funkadelic,
Parliament, George Clinton and the entire P-Funk stable
has grown new generations of fans and musicians have
bought, enjoyed and sampled "Mothership
Connection". Today it is seen as a classic and essential
album. Ace are delighted to have been able to licence this
beauty and are proud to serve this classic on 180gm
vinyl. Be warned, once you drop the needle you'll want
to wear this sucker out.
