Parliament – The Clones of Dr. Funkenstein

I found this at Amoeba for less than retail, and the quality of the groove is really high throughout. The horns are the highlight of this 1976 album, with arrangements by Fred Wesley and Bernie Worrell, while Dr. Funkenstein and Do That Stuff were also released as singles. I heard Do That Stuff’s synth hook first sampled in Royksopp’s Happy Up Here, and its bouncy melody carries the chorus while the horns and rhythm hold the rest.

A really good Parliament/Funkadelic album, it makes for great listening and is a good buy for fans of the one. But these albums do not sell for much less than new, so if you want P-Funk albums you have to pay P-Funk prices.
