Wait, so a thread about Funk lasted more than 3 yoctoseconds without mention of James Brown OR Parliament/Funkadelic/George Clinton?! For shame! :)

Clearly, I plan on remedying this. Ahem:


Parliament- Mothership Connection- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_ifm_Vg5uY&feature=related

Funkadelic- Undisco Kidd
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abYmQXC8mSg

James Brown- Get on the Good Foot
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DAfBZbz3tI

James Brown- I'm a Greedy Man (Parts 1&2)---->probably my favorite ever JB track, besides of course the 19 minute version of Escap-ism on "Hot Pants"...but then, I am a JB snob

I could go in into oblivion, but you get the idea. This thread is now officially raw.


ETA: What kind of interplanetary funkateer would I be if I excluded this little composition?!

Jimmy Castor Bunch- Troglodyte
