On This Day in 1975 Parliament released ‘Mothership Connection’. This is a huge classic that will be instantly recognisable to fans of Dr Dre’s ‘The Chronic’. George Clinton claimed it was written by a desire to put black people into places they had never been before, in this case outer space. It definitely has an otherworldly party vibe, maybe it’s that organ. It’s a funk album but it doesn’t have the raw groove of James Brown, it was described as a parody of funk but I’d say it’s thinking-outside-the-box funk. You could still easily place it in the 1970s but it sounds very modern.
Some killer Detroit soul on this fine Saturday. I came across this record while digging through box after box of unsorted 45s at The Record Graveyard in Hamtramck, MI way back in the day. I saw the label Revilot, which I didn’t recognize at the time. I did recognize the ‘G. Clinton’ association with Parliament-Funkadelic, but was confused by the ‘Parliaments’ name. Later I discovered that this was the early incarnation of what would come to be the preeminent funk outfit. I was hooked on obscure Detroit soul singles from that day forward!! #detroitsoul #parliamentfunkadelic #georgeclinton #digginginthecrates #hamtramck #revilot #notstreaming
SMFH.....In 2018, We Losing More Of Our Heroes
This one hurts to the core especially for those who know and are fans of my mom because contrary to rumor based on my mom’s rep for her Aretha, Chaka, Patti, Natalie & Whitney stylings, it’s this golden woman right here who was my mom’s #1
favorite singer & influence where she got her style from in terms of phrasing, styling and the ability to tell the story of the song with so much class & elegance that you could see the song come alive so of course, I became a student of hers thanks to my mom
I recommend for ANY female singer younger or older to go listen to my top 3 favorite albums of hers: Something Wonderful, Nancy Wilson/Cannonball Adderley & This Mother’s Daughter and you'll see why she went by her 3 famous monikers: "Sweet Nancy", "The Baby", "Fancy Miss Nancy" and the most truest one of all..."The Girl With the Honey-Coated Voice"
She's gonna be missed for real

So for the last couple of weeks I’ve been watching Tales from the tour bus, a show by @realmikejudge
(King of the Hill) and such, so far there have been episodes on George Clinton, PFunk, Rick James and James Brown, this program is hilarious, and eye opening, reliving stories about sex, drugs and rock n roll through the Funk portal.
I have met a lot of people in my time, especially in the music biz BUT when you have the drummer from the iconic Parliament P Funk, George Clinton and Bootsy right hand man telling you side stories.... you listen. Frank “Kash” Waddy, the drummer on the hardest tunes from from the Funk era and the G Funk sound that took beats from PFunk.
Honored to call him a valuable resource and historical treasure and friend.
Thank you @realmikejudge
for this crazy show, it’s absolutely incredible, that also celebrates our heroes.
🌈🖼Windows Of Perception🖼🌈 26x32
This is my version of the book "Doors of Perception" by Aldous Huxley.🖼A painting representing the the window that we enter in our minds during a natural high/psychedelic trip/ or anything that gives you the feeling of a high escape. This particular painting represents the high/colorful wave I've been riding since Miami art Basel. To get a better understanding of this painting listen to the song "Shining Like The Funk" by The Touch Funk. Enjoy!💛🌈
George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, on Wednesday... Hump Day. Funk in and all over your face.
Finally took the deep dive into @nmaahc
with the #turnergang
crew last weekend. Not my first visit but definitely our longest and they had to kick me out after about 7 hours. Need another 1,000 hours in there to digest everything. Kids had a blast. Very impressed with the interactive options for them throughout the entire building. A welcome and appreciated addition to the best museum city in the 🌍. Finished with a great meal at one of our new favorite spots @thipkhaodc

George Clinton, the iconic Godfather of Funk whose career spans over 40 years, had announced he’s retiring from touring in 2019. On that note, he went out with a bang in his final Seattle show with Parliament Funkadelic in front of a raucous crowd at the Neptune.
The Godfather of Funk himself, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic. Wednesday night at Neptune Theatre.
George Clinton and his grandsons gave us the funk, the whole funk and nothing but the funk tonight.
